Our Q215 West and Central Africa report analyses latest industry, regulatory and macroeconomic developments in the telecoms markets of seven countries: Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Gabon, Mali, Mauritania and Senegal. As mobile subscriptions growth slows down in these markets, operators will increasingly shift their resources towards advanced data services to sustain revenue growth. Their efforts will be complemented by the proliferation of low-cost smartphones and tablets as well as cheaper and more reliable access to international bandwidth connectivity via submarine cables.

Key Data

- In our forecast period ending 2019, we expect compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach 4% for the seven countries in our coverage, leading with the DRC at 8.7% and ending with Gabon at 1.1%.
- The positions are reversed, unsurprisingly, for our estimated penetration rates for 2014, with Gabon topping the region at 184.2%, with DRC reporting a rate of 56%. The seven countries' average is 109%, well above the regional average of 86.9%.
