Multiplay Service Market Trends in Africa & the Middle East

Summary

Multiplay Service Market Trends in Africa & the Middle East, a new Telecom Insider Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the multiplay market in the Africa and the Middle East. It delivers deep qualitative and quantitative insight into the multiplay market in the region, analyzing key trends and strategies adopted by service providers.

Compared to other global regions, Africa and the Middle East (AME) has the lowest multiplay household penetration, estimated at 5.3%. The presence of a vast number of under-developed economies with very low per-capita incomes and relatively low fixed broadband penetration levels, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), is a major factor behind the low levels of multiplay adoption. The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) has several countries such as Israel and the UAE which are leading fixed broadband adoption and are driving opportunities for multiplay growth. Governments in several AME countries, such as Niger, Cameroon and Cote d'Ivoire, among others, have initiated fiber-optic backbone projects to improve fixed broadband connectivity. This will support investments from telcos for the expansion of fixed broadband services and drive multiplay offerings across the region. Furthermore, increasing adoption of pay-TV services and local loop unbundling (LLU) regulations will promote multiplay adoption in the AME.
