"Malaysia: Expansion of High-Speed Wireless and Fixed Broadband Networks to Drive Telecom Market Growth", is a new Country Intelligence Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in Malaysia today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2021. Published annually, the report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband, and mobile, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.
The telecom service revenue growth in Malaysia over 2016-2021 will be sustained by mobile data, fixed internet and VoIP service segments. Mobile voice is the largest revenue-contributing segment but is expected to be replaced by mobile data in 2021. Going forward, operators will focus on data centric services and invest in 4G/LTE-A and FTTH deployments to boost broadband penetration in the country. Operators’ push for digital solutions such as M2M/IoT, and smart cities under the Eleventh Malaysia Plan, 2016-2020 and TN50 will create significant opportunities for vendors and investors in the coming years.

- Main opportunities: this section details the near-term opportunities for operators, vendors and investors in Malaysia's telecommunications markets.
- Total telecom service revenue growth in Malaysia will remain insignificant but will avoid any erosion in market value over 2016-2021 thanks to growth in the mobile data, VoIP and fixed Internet segments.
- Mobile revenue will account for 63.0% of total telecom revenue in 2021, with mobile data accounting for 50.8% of mobile revenue in 2021.
- 3G is currently the most adopted mobile technology. However, its share will decline during the forecast period as customers migrate to higher-speed LTE/LTE-A services.
- The top two operators, Maxis and Celcom, accounted for 47.0% share of overall service revenue in 2016. We expect the competition to intensify further with the recent launch of Webe Mobile by incumbent Telekom Malaysia in September 2017, which allows the operator to provide fixed-mobile converged services.
- Operators will continue to invest in 4G network expansion and fiber deployment to improve connectivity and cater to the rising data demand.
