In 2016, South Korea generated telecom service revenue of US$32.3bn (W37,519bn), equivalent to 2.3% of nominal GDP, a decline of -1.7% since 2015, due to a massive decline in voice services revenue. However, in local currency its revenue increased by 0.9% over 2015. The mobile market continues to be the largest contributor to total market revenue, accounting for 60.3% of overall telecom revenue in 2016.

It is expected that overall service revenue to decline at a CAGR of -0.5% (or a lethargic growth of 0.8% CAGR in South Korean won) during 2016-2021 due to a huge decline in mobile voice services as well as in the fixed circuit-switched segment. Mobile data revenue will see steady growth due to a rise in consumption of online content on mobile devices backed by proliferation of low-cost smartphones and improved LTE-A networks. In line with this, the fixed/mobile revenue split will be dominated by the mobile segment through 2016-2021.

4G remains the most adopted technology in South Korea, accounting for 75.8% of mobile subscriptions in 2016, but its share will decline to 64.7% by 2021 due to the launch of commercial 5G networks starting in 2018. We expect 5G will account for 33.7% of mobile subscriptions by the end of 2021. Broadband lines will register a 2.3% CAGR through 2021 supported by developments in fiber-optic networks. Fixed broadband services revenue growth will be sustained by a steady rise in consumption of high-bandwidth content aided by increasing FTTx subscriptions enabled by operator and government efforts to enhance fiber networks.

The top two operators, KT and SK Telecom, which provide fixed, mobile services and pay-TV, accounted for 69.1% of total service revenue in 2016. GlobalData expects both operators to maintain leadership positions through 2021 but will see a decline in their share due to increasing competition from LG U+. Operators continue to compete on network, value-added services, price and IoT projects.

Scope

  • Overall telecom service revenue in South Korea will decline at a CAGR of -0.5% during 2016-2021, mainly affected by declining voice revenue. Growth in the data services segment will also fail to offset declining voice services. The demand for high bandwidth online content and OTT services will be a key driver for the growth of mobile data in South Korea.
  • Mobile revenue will account for 60.3% of total telecom revenue in 2021; mobile data will witness a CAGR of 1.5% during 2016-2021.
  • The top two operators, KT and SK Telecom, accounted for 69.1% share of overall service revenue in 2016. We expect competition to intensify as operators are investing in 5G and fixed broadband.
