Portuguese market sees several changes following sale of Portugal Telecom to Altice Group

Portugal’s medium-sized telecom market has a strong mobile sector and a fast-developing broadband sector which has focussed on fibre networks. The development of digital-TV services has progressed under cautious regulatory guidance, with a licence for digital-service transmission awarded to Portugal Telecom in mid-2008. The difficult economic conditions have seen operators’ domestic revenue fall in recent quarters. The market has seen significant merger activity, with Sonaecom’s Optimus division being merged with Zon Multimédia in mid-2013, becoming Zon Optimus before being rebranded as NOS. Portugal telecom is in the process of being acquired by Altice in a €7.4 billion deal, approval for which has required Altice to dispose of its local units Onitelecom and Cabovisão.

Given the rapid development of capable fixed-line broadband infrastructure, there has been considerable take-up of bundled services. Almost three-quarters of households took multiple services by the beginning of 2015. The main players are NOS and Portugal Telecom, while Vodafone has invested heavily in its own national NGN, with a view to extending its 1Gb;/s offerings more widely across its network.

The mobile market is served by a triopoly of MNOs, the incumbent’s Meo, Vodafone and NOS. Mobile penetration is above the EU average, while growth has been supported through customer use of multiple SIM cards. HSPA and LTE upgrades have considerably boosted the geographical reach and take-up of high-end mobile data services. Meo was the first operator to launch commercial LTE services, while Vodafone has more recently developed LTE-A capable of data rates of up to 450b/s.

This report assesses the major elements of Portugal’s telecom market, presenting statistics on the fixed telephony sector as well as an analysis of the major market players. Additional information is provided on the key regulatory issues, noting the status of interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability and carrier preselection. This report also considers the fast developing bundled services market, as also the cable, digital and satellite TV markets. It profiles Portugal’s fixed and wireless broadband markets, providing key statistics on the retail and wholesale sectors as well as subscriber forecasts to 2020. The report also analyses the mobile market, providing statistics on network operators, a review of the key regulatory issues, a snapshot of the consumer market, and an analysis of mobile data services.

Portugal – Fiber Broadband Presents the Most Attractive Opportunity for Telecom Operators, New Report Launched

Portugal: Fiber Broadband Presents the Most Attractive Opportunity for Telecom Operators a new Country Intelligence Report, offers a precise, incisive profile of Portugal’s mobile and fixed telecommunications based on comprehensive proprietary data and insights from our research in the Portuguese market. Published annually, this presentation-quality, executive-level report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type, technology and platform across the fixed telephony, broadband and mobile sectors, in addition to a review of key regulatory trends.

Key Findings

  • The fixed broadband segment, fueled by adoption of next-generation networks (NGNs), is the most important driver for growth. Historically, Portugal has had low take-up of fixed broadband. Nonetheless, the country fares better than the average in the region when it comes to NGN technologies capable of providing at least 30Mbps. We expect the growth of fiber-based broadband to remain strong over the forecast period, helping Portugal reduce the broadband penetration gap with the major regional markets.
  • The fixed/mobile revenue split will be inclined toward mobile services. Despite the growth of fixed broadband, demand for fixed services is affected negatively by declining traditional fixed circuit-switched lines. In the mobile segment, LTE coverage is already better than in most European markets, edging close to 100% for all three operators. As a result, subscribers are replacing mobile voice services with mobile data services not only on 3G but also on 4G networks.
  • We expect further M&A over the coming quarters, especially in the cable segment. The Portuguese market has already gone through significant consolidation in the past two years. The most important change was the sale by Orange of its 20% stake in Sonaecom, the former parent company of Optimus. At the end of last year, Vodafone expressed its interest in acquiring a cable company in Portugal, after taking over cable companies in Spain and Germany. We believe that Cabovisao will be a primary acquisition target for Vodafone.

Portugal Telecom Revenue Continues To Decline As Portugal Telecom Looks To Brazil, Reveals New Report

Portugal has a medium-sized telecom market with a strong mobile sector and a growing broadband customer base well served by both the cable and DSL platforms. The development of digital-TV services has progressed under cautious regulatory guidance, with a licence for digital-service transmission awarded to Portugal Telecom in mid-2008. The difficult economic conditions in the country in recent years have been reflected tin operators’ declining revenue. This saw Cogeco selling the flagging Caboviso in early 2012 for a considerable loss, while significant merger activity has arisen as operators see benefits in scale. Sonaecom’s Optimus division was merged with Zon Multimdia in mid-2013, becoming Zon Optimus, while Portugal Telecom is in the process of merging with Brazil’s telco Oi.

The mobile market is served by a triopoly of MNOs: the incumbent’s TMN, Vodafone and Optimus. Mobile penetration is above the EU average, while growth has been supported through the popularity for multiple SIMs. All operators have launched 3G services and have invested in HSPA and LTE upgrades. The MVNO market remains undeveloped, though network operators have their own low-cost brands and a range of offers tied to commercial enterprises, such as clubs, providing bespoke calling rates.

There has been considerable development in the converged services market. The digital TV platform was completed in April 2012 with all analogue broadcasting coming to an end. A licence for pay TV and free-to-air services was awarded to Portugal Telecom in 2008. The operator’s quad-play service, launched in 2013, has tapped into the popularity of bundled offerings.

Portugal’s broadband penetration is considerably lower than the European average, though the efforts of a capable and robust regulator coupled with infrastructure upgrades in both the cable and DSL sectors have narrowed the gap during the last two years. Cable has showed strong growth in recent years, partly through the efforts of the rebranded dominant operator Zon Optimus. Portugal Telecom and its subsidiaries control most of the DSL market, but new regulatory provisions have granted easier and cheaper access for alternative ISPs.

All operators have focussed on increasing broadband speed, while the regulator has encouraged and maintained the impetus for local loop unbundling. The fibre market remains underdeveloped, though regulatory measures coupled with substantial investments planned by the major operators should see significant growth in coming years.

Construction in Portugal – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018, New Report Launched

The Portuguese construction industry recorded a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.67% during the review period (2009–2013) and valued EUR19.1 billion (US$25.4 billion) in 2013. During the review period, all construction markets registered negative growth, owing to the financial crisis and austerity measures implemented by the government. Although export demand has improved, the economy remained weak and the recovery is vulnerable to external risks. Until consumer and business confidence is revived, general spending and investment will remain low, undermining the prospects for construction activity growth. The construction industry’s output is, therefore, expected to record a nominal CAGR of 1.06% over the forecast period (2014−2018), to reach EUR20.2 billion (US$28.4 billion) in 2018.

This report provides detailed market analysis, information and insights into the Portuguese construction industry including:

  • The Portuguese construction industry’s growth prospects by market, project type and type of construction activity

  • Critical insight into the impact of industry trends and issues, and the risks and opportunities they present to participants in the Portuguese construction industry
  • Analyzing the profiles of the leading operators in the Portuguese construction industry.
  • Data highlights of the largest construction projects in Portugal

Scope

This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the construction industry in Portugal. It provides:

  • Historical (2009-2013) and forecast (2014-2018) valuations of the construction industry in Portugal using construction output and value-add methods
  • Segmentation by sector (commercial, industrial, infrastructure, institutional and residential) and by project type
  • Breakdown of values within each project type, by type of activity (new construction, repair and maintenance, refurbishment and demolition) and by type of cost (materials, equipment and services)
  • Analysis of key construction industry issues, including regulation, cost management, funding and pricing

  • Assess business risks, including cost, regulatory and competitive pressures
  • Evaluate competitive risk and success factors

Key Highlights

  • For the past decade, Portugal’s construction industry has been in a state of decline. According to Statistics Portugal (Instituto Nacional de Estatística – INE), in 2013, construction production activity was equivalent to just 40.0% of the total in 2003. The pace of decline quickened in 2012 and 2013, when the annual decline reached 16.0%. Construction value added in real terms declined from EUR6.4 million (US$8.2 million) in 2012 to EUR5.5 million (US$7.3 million) in 2013, while the contribution of total construction industry’s value add to GDP in nominal terms declined from 4.4% in 2012 to 3.8% in 2013. There has also been a decline in the number of building permits issued in the country; the total fell to 16,700 in 2013, a decline of 19.6% over 2012. The number of completed buildings dropped to 19,700 in 2013, a decline of 24.1% during the same period.
  • In 2011, the government introduced the new toll charges on roads stretching more than 900km. The charges resulted in a decline in traffic and affected investments in road infrastructure. According to Inrix, a leading provider of traffic services, congestion was reduced by 68.0% in the first quarter of 2013. Portugal’s infrastructure projects are primarily financed by public private partnerships (PPPs) and in 2012 the government decided to renegotiate these contracts with private firms to generate savings and reduce the PPP obligation by 30% over the next 30 years. Owing to these situations, the investment in the road infrastructure category is likely to decline over the forecast period.
  • In a bid to meet the targets set out by international lenders, the government has had to implement austerity measures. The government reduced its education spending from a peak of EUR8.5 billion (US$11.2 billion) in 2010 to EUR6.8 billion (US$8.7 billion) in 2012, with some of this saving coming from school closures. The number of schools was reduced by 1,200 to reach 6,292 for the academic year 2013–2014, and as such, future investment in new educational buildings is expected to be minimal.
  • According to the INE, the movement of goods in ports increased by 20.2% in the fourth quarter of 2013, whereas railway freight transport increased by 8.0%. The road freight transport registered an increase of 19.9% in the fourth quarter of 2013. The upward trend in the transport of goods is likely to continue due to improvements in export demand, which, in turn, will attract investment in the transport infrastructure over the forecast period.
  • According to the World Travel and Tourism Council, the direct contribution of tourism to the country’s GDP reached EUR9.4 billion (US$12.8 billion) in 2012 and is expected to increase by 2.0% annually by 2023. The number of foreign tourist arrivals in the country increased by 8.1%, to reach 3.6 million in the first half of 2013. Due to an increasing number of tourists, investment in the leisure and hospitality buildings category is expected to increase. Various upcoming projects, such as the Monte Nabo Hotel Resort & Spa, worth EUR24.0 million (US$30.0 million) and Palmares Beach and Golf Resort in Algarve, worth EUR313.1 million (US$412.0 million), will support growth in the commercial construction market.

Executive Summary

Merger activity sees creation of ZON Optimus as a full service telcoPortugal’s medium-sized telecom market has a strong mobile sector and a growing broadband customer base well served by both the cable and DSL platforms. The country’s difficult economic conditions have operators’ domestic revenue fall in recent quarters. Cogeco Cable sold the flagging Cabovisão in early 2012 for a considerable loss, while the market has also seen significant merger activity, with Sonaecom’s Optimus division being merged with ZON Multimédia in mid-2013, becoming ZON Optimus. The report introduces the major elements of the Portuguese telecom market, presenting statistics on the fixed telephony sector as well as an analysis of the major market players. Additional information is provided on the key regulatory issues, noting the status of interconnection, local loop unbundling, number portability and carrier preselection.

In the broadband sector, cable has showed strong growth in recent years. The incumbent, Portugal Telecom, and its subsidiaries control most of the DSL market, but new regulatory provisions have granted easier and cheaper access for alternative ISPs. All operators are focussing on increased broadband speeds, while the regulator has maintained the impetus for local loop unbundling. The fibre market remains underdeveloped, though regulatory measures coupled with substantial investments among operators should see significant growth in coming years.

Portugal has seen considerable development in the converged services market. The switch to digital TV broadcasting was completed in April 2012. Portugal Telecom’s quad-play service, launched in 2013, has tapped into the popularity of bundled offerings. The report assesses the major elements of the Portuguese market for converged media, presenting statistics on the cable, digital and satellite TV markets and an analysis of the major players and service offerings.

Portugal’s mobile market is served by a triopoly of MNOs, the incumbent’s TMN, Vodafone, and now ZON Optimus. Mobile penetration is above the EU average, while growth has been supported through the popular use of multiple SIM cards. All operators have invested in LTE networks in a bid to capitalise on mobile data services, and so offset declining voice revenue. The MVNO market remains undeveloped, though network operators have their own low-cost brands. The report profiles Portugal’s mobile market, providing statistics on network operators, a review of the key regulatory issues, a snapshot of the consumer market, and an analysis of mobile data services including SMS, Push-to-Talk and mobile TV.
