With relatively high device ownership levels (mobile penetration of more than 100%), North Africa’s telecoms markets have reached a crossroads. On the mobile front, only the transition from 3G to 4G will keep revenue levels stable, while the fixed market is still being sustained by volume growth.
A region of seven countries (from east to west: Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Sudan), North Africa accounts for just under 19% of the population of Africa (233.3 million people at the end of 2017) but for more than 30% of its wealth (GDP of 596 billion EUR in 2017). Enjoying a steady recovery for the [...]
The momentum that kicked off in the early 2010s has enabled West Africa to achieve relatively high mobile ownership levels, while still having considerable growth potential, especially with the transition to 3G/4G which should represent 70% of all customers by 2022.
A region of 15 countries (Cape Verde, Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Benin, Togo, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Nigeria and Niger), West Africa represents close to 30% of the continent’s population (365.4 million people at the end of 2017) and 25% of its wealth (GDP of 494 billion EUR in 2017). The [...]
If Central Africa appears to be lagging behind the rest of Africa overall, and especially in terms of mobile ownership levels (a mere 54% penetration and only 24% of users have upgraded to 3G/4G), it is above all a region of tremendous contrasts, home to both some of the least equipped countries (Central African Republic) and some of the best equipped (Gabon).
Covering seven countries (Cameroon, Central African Republic (CAR), Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon), Central Africa represents around 11% of the continent’s population (135.3 million people at the end of 2017) but only 5.5% of its wealth (GDP of 109 billion EUR in 2017). Relatively moderate over the [...]
With a GDP per capita that is double the regional average, Kenya continues to widen its lead on the telecommunications front, and now accounts for 50% of the sector’s revenue in East Africa, thanks in part to a solid leadership in the area of mobile financial (m-money) services.
Covering 10 countries (Burundi, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, the Seychelles, Somalia, South Sudan and Uganda), East Africa represents just over 20% of the population of Africa (250.1 million people at the end of 2017) but only 10% of its wealth (GDP in 2017 of 192 billion EUR). The region’s economic growth in the medium term is [...]
Led by South Africa, the region is home to most of the countries of Sub-Saharan Africa that are currently deploying FTTH networks, and which today account for more than 90% of the continent’s fibre access lines. Southern Africa is also home to several of the countries with the highest mobile ownership rates.
Composed of 15 countries (Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mayotte, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, eSwatini, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe), Southern Africa represents a little over 20% of the population of Africa (251.9 million people at the end of 2017) and close to 30% of its wealth (GDP of 579 billion EUR in 2017). The steady [...]
