  15. 15. Executive Summary India•As of June 2011, India had about 851.7 million Wireless subscribers. Out of these around 70% ofsubscribers were active (VLR) subscribers. The teledensity based on the overall subscribers was around70.16%•As of CY 2010, VAS contributed to about 12% of the overall operator revenue. This is likely to reach 25% by2017•Around 320 million subscribers used Value added services in India as of June 2011. The VAS penetration(population) was about 26.3%•P2P SMS has traditionally been the highest contributor in the VAS segment followed by CRBT. However thistrend is likely to change and together, SMS and CRBT will contribute about 22% of the overall VAS revenuesin 2017•The VAS revenues is likely to reach 12.6 billion USD by 2017 at a CAGR of 30%.•Video calling, Mobile TV, Location Based Services and Mobile commerce are likely to witness increased usage and adoption in the near futureP5CC-65 15
  16. 16. Executive Summary Egypt•As of June 2011, there were 76.43 million mobile subscribers in Egypt including a large number of inactive subscribers due to prevalenceof multi-SIM subscribers . The subscriber penetration stood at 95.07% (June 2011) and is expected to cross the cent percent mark in CY2012•The blended industry ARPU is estimated to increase from USD 4.56 in H1 2011 to USD 6.00 in 2017. While the Voice ARPU is expectedto continue to decline, data ARPU will increase owing to increased VAS uptake•Relaxation of government regulations and increasing penetration of mobile broadband services are likely to drive the usage of VAS anddata services. On the other hand, unstable socio-economic scenario, low smartphones penetration and high pricing of VAS services willhinder the growth of VAS industry in the country•VAS penetration is more than 75% percent in the country considering P2P SMS a VAS service. Non SMS VAS subscribers are estimatedto reach 47 million by 2017, taking the penetration level to 46% from present 23%•Revenues generated by the VAS industry are estimated to reach USD 3.80 billion by 2017, representing more than 52% of the operators’wireless revenues•Consumer focus is shifting from entertainment VAS to infotainment and utility based VAS services.The onus is on third party application developers and VAS vendors to help operators generate new revenue streams P5CC-65 16
