Pyramid Research expects overall telecoms service revenue to grow at a CAGR of 3.5% over the forecast period.
The Mauritian telecoms market has witnessed strong investment in the broadband segment over the last few years, especially with the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) commercial launch by Orange (Mauritius Telecom) in 2013. Nevertheless, despite this investment Mauritius remains a mobile market at its core.
Pyramid Research expects 3G subscriptions to reach 1.9m, or 84.4% of total mobile subscriptions, in 2020 from 1.0m, or 57.1% of total mobile subscriptions, in 2015. The early introduction of 3G services places Mauritius among the most advanced countries in term of 3G adoption in Africa.
4G/LTE was introduced in Mauritius in May 2012 by Emtel, followed by Orange in June. MTML launched LTE in May 2015. By year-end 2020 the number of LTE subscriptions will reach 0.2m, or 10.6% of all mobile subscriptions
Over the next five years operators should seize opportunities related to bundled offerings and value-added services. Vendors should position themselves as strategic partners to support the government’s ‘Smart Mauritius’ strategic plan.
