The UAE is a highly lucrative market for 3G mobile services. It is characterized by over penetrated mobile market and vast affluent population that seems to be more tech-savvy. According to our research report “Middle East ICT Market Analysis”, third generation networks will drive growth in the ICT industry. The number of 3G subscriber are projected to grow threefold by 2013 fueled by differentiated and more customized value added services and migration from traditional voice-only mobiles to more sophisticated 3G mobile technology. The country enjoys 100% coverage for 3G technology.
We have found that mobile phone users in the UAE exhibit sophistication in their demand for mobile devices. They are willing to know about all the possible options in 3G services both in terms of sales and after-sales support. The emerging 3G market presents tremendous growth potential for the content and application providers as 3G helps mobile users to access various WAP-enabled websites on mobile phones. Affordable 3G handsets, better understanding of the technology, and expansion of 3G networks will attract subscribers to adopt 3G technology.
We have also found that Internet subscription in the UAE grew at an annual rate of over 20% from 1.16 Million in 2008 to nearly 1.4 Million subscribers in 2009. This increase was attributed to rising consumer needs to get Internet connectivity and the consistent fall down of Internet subscription rates. Besides, the government is encouraging the development of 'smart cities', availability of better connectivity and high speed internet in the country. According to our experts, the number of broadband subscriber will also grow almost twofold by 2013 due to aggressive marketing strategy adopted by operators.
