'Ghana: Spectrum Auction and New License Framework Will Drive Competition and Innovation,' a new Country Intelligence Report by Pyramid Research, offers a precise, incisive profile of Ghana's mobile and fixed telecommunications markets based on comprehensive proprietary data and insights from our research in the Ghanaian market. Published annually, this presentation-quality, executive-level report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband and mobile sectors, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Key Findings

* In 2014, Ghana was the 22nd largest telecom services market in the Africa and Middle East (AME) region, with estimated revenue of $1.2bn, a 24.5% decrease compared with the previous year in US dollar terms. In local currency however, the sector expanded by 10.4%.
* Pyramid Research expects to see overall service revenue decline at a -0.8% CAGR in dollar terms (11.4% CAGR in local currency) between 2014 and 2019. The fixed/mobile revenue split will be heavily weighted toward mobile services over the forecast period, with the share of fixed services down by 2.2 percentage points to 96.7% between 2014 and 2019.
* The data market in Ghana remains underdeveloped by regional standards, suggesting there is significant room for growth in this segment for operators. For vendors, we anticipate significant opportunities around LTE deployments and the market for 3G and 4G devices.
