Executive Summary

The Sector At A Glance

Key Insights On The Telecomunications sector of Taiwan

We have substantially revised our forecasts for both the mobile and broadband markets in Taiwan. Growth in the mobile market has remained sluggish, with just 180,000 net additions over the first nine months of 2006, which brought the total subscriber number to 21.378mn users. Such poor take-up is perhaps unsurprising, given that penetration rates have remained over 90% since 2004. However, we believe that poor development in the 3G market has been the overriding factor. Unlike some of its regional counterparts, such as Japan where over half of the mobile population subscribes to 3G services, we expect this figure in Taiwan to be just 16% by YE06. Indeed, we have revised our 3G expectations downwards to 3.45mn 3G customers by the end of the year, and the only operator likely to achieve its YE06 target is Chunghwa Telecom. This is largely due to the operator’s policy of reducing the number of its 2G and 2.5G handset models, while at the same time increasing the number of its 3G handset models.

In order to improve 3G take-up, operators will need to focus on greater handset variety and data service partnerships. Chunghwa has taken a lead on this through its recent agreement with the Google search engine, which will feature on the operator’s mobile internet access platform, in addition to video and music downloading, an area sorely lacking in the market. Meanwhile, the NCC’s initiative to reduce mobile tariffs by 4.9% annually from 2007-2010 will go some way in aiding further mobile subscriptions.

As for the broadband market, latest figures from the Ministry of Transport and Communication (MoTC) showed that by YE05, there were some 4.602mn users. Based on these figures we expect that the market will continue to grow impressively, taking penetration rates past 30% in H208. Expectations that the market will develop substantially, and in particular from late 2007, are due to the regulator’s announcement that nine additional WiMAX licences are to be awarded in Q207. Each concession is valid for a period of six years, with the condition that networks are launched within one year of being awarded. This marks part of the government’s ongoing efforts to raise the level of broadband penetration, forming part of its Mobile Taiwan (M-Taiwan) project. In addition, the NCC also reported that broadband and internet tariffs would fall by 5.35% each year starting from 2007 until 2010, in order to encourage greater take-up of services.

Taiwan’s position in our Business Environment Rankings table has risen to joint third place with South Korea. Part of the reason behind Taiwan’s strong performance is down to its improved relations with mainland China, while the country’s increasingly competitive environment, with no fewer than four mobile operators offering 2G services and five operators in the 3G space, is also a plus.
