From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Oct 23 2015

Markets in North Africa are quickl y evolving from being voice-centric towards becoming data-centric, with mobile broadband being the core driver in all markets. 3G services have been launched with success in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, and the licensing and roll-out of 4G services is also on track. Success is dependent on the overall macroeconomic situation, with higher purchasing power helping with the development of the telecoms market, while the security situation is always at t he forefront in the region. All markets have a mix of public and private operators, though liberalisation is not present in all sectors, and the competition has always driven greater uptake in the region.

Key Data

The ADSL market grew above 1mn in Morocco, with total 3G subscriptions growing above 10mn

Currency depreciations had a negative impact for international operators present in Algeria and Tunisia, as USD-denominated ARPU declined

The Moroccan and Tunisian mobile markets reported declines in Q115, driven by lower multiple-SIM ownership and the convergence of on-net and off-net pricing amongst many commercial plans

Regional Perspective

Morocco is North Africa's over-performer in terms of our regional risk/reward index, the only country to score above MENA's regional average of 47.7. Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria are in the middle of the pack, ranked 8th, 11th and 12th respectively, with Libya in 14th spot. Both Morocco and Tunisia performed better this quarter, thanks to an increase in their country risks score, highlighting greater perspective in terms of private consumption, but Algeria underperformed for opposite reasons, as its reliance on oil turns us more bearish.
