Niger Telecommunications Q1 2018

BMI View: We have made forecast revisions for the Niger mobile market outlook in the latest 2018 report update but our core view remains unchanged. The Niger market continues to perform in line with our forecasts. We expect 2G/3G access to be a key growth driver of the overall mobile market, on the back of exponential growth by operators such as Celtel and Moov. Nevertheless, chronic poverty, low spending powers and weak incomes continue to constrain robust growth in the market. Furthermore, the high degree of rural population in the country makes mobile infrastructure development a challenging affair. We do highlight that the market has significant growth potential, as highlighted by the low degree of penetration and the regulator and the government remain actively committed towards boosting competition and equitable telecoms access in the country. Furthermore, with the government contemplating abolishing telecoms tax in its 2017/18 budget, operators will have strong incentive to reinvest in their networks.
