Research and Markets Predicts Robust Growth in Argentina

Research and Markets , a ‘One-Stop-Shop’ for market research reports and industry newsletters from specialist research firms and niche market analysts, has announced the addition of the "Argentina - Telecom Market Trends, Key Statistics and Regulatory Overview" report to its offering. This comprehensive report incorporates Market and industry analyses and trends and developments in Argentina.

Argentina's telecom market is expected to grow by 18% in 2010, and sales are expected to reach more than AR$44 billion (US$10.6 billion) in 2011. As in other Latin American countries, fixed-line revenues account for a decreasing portion of total telecom revenues, while the share of mobile and data/Internet revenues continues to rise.

Argentina has adopted a single license system, which telecom companies must obtain regardless of the services they wish to provide. Operators must list in their license applications which services they wish to offer, but can at any time register for additional ones. The country's regulatory framework encourages competition and supports smaller telecom players. Both fixed and mobile number portability are scheduled for implementation in December 2011. This report provides an overview of Argentina's telecom sector and regulatory environment, accompanied by statistical data, analyses, and outlook.

Argentina is one of the most mature telecom markets in Latin America. This report covers trends and developments in telecommunications, mobile, Internet, broadband, pay TV, and converging media. Argentina’s economy is showing higher growth rates than originally forecast thanks to increased government spending ahead of the 2011 elections, robust consumer activity, bumper crops, and a strong rebound in neighboring Brazil. Moreover, the country’s regulatory framework encourages competition and the rise of smaller telecom players. However, number portability has been delayed for many years, with implementation now expected either before the end of 2010 or in 2011.
