DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Sub-Saharan Africa Mobile Telecom Infrastructure Market, Forecast to 2021" report to their offering.
The market for tower services in the region was worth an estimated $991.7 million in 2016, and is expected to grow at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8%, to reach $1,508.4 million in 2021. This market insight provides an analysis of the telecoms tower industry in Sub-Saharan Africa, with a special focus on some of the leading markets in the region, including Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ghana and Tanzania.
It focuses on the current structure of tower ownership between mobile network operators (MNOs) and towercos and how this is expected to evolve over the long-term. The report also provides an overview of the current and expected base of mobile towers in the region, highlighting potential opportunities in the market and competitive structure across selected countries.
MNOs are becoming open to selling off or outsourcing the management of their infrastructure to third-party providers in order focus on their core operations. With MNOs still looking to increase their network coverage, towercos will need to secure prime sites in urban areas and strategic locations in rural areas that can offer a long-term Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) from value-added services.
With their high base of towers, coupled with the low penetration of towerco-owned towers, South Africa and Kenya offer the greatest potential for future tower sales. However, the leading operators have not demonstrated a willingness to sell their towers in the short to medium-term.
There is a growing opportunity for towercos to boost tenancy ratios from leasing capacity to emerging, relatively small providers of wireless broadband services such as WiFi and Long Term Evolution (LTE).
