BMI View: Benin's mobile telephony market has experienced strong growth over the last six years.However, BMI believes that growth will decelerate considerably over our 2015-2020 forecast period. Beninoffers limited opportunities for investors, owing to near-saturation of the mobile sector and the challengesinvolved in rolling out modern wireline infrastructure beyond the major population and business centres.There also seems to be little progress made with the sale of Libercom, the mobile unit of state-backedtelecoms operator Bénin Télécoms. Although Bénin Télécoms introduced a commercial 4G LTE mobilenetwork services under the be.Telecoms brand in December 2015, we caution that service uptake couldslow due to the higher cost of data services and a tendency among the majority of the population towardscheaper no-thrills price plans that do not include data.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- At the end of 2015 Benin had 9.317mn mobile telephony subscribers and we predict that this figure willrise to 10.100mn by 2020. Growth is expected to slow in the latter years of our forecast.

- In December 2015, Bénin Télécoms introduced commercial 4G LTE mobile network services under thebe.Telecoms brand. The operator aims to extend the services, which are based on 1800MHz frequency, toindividual users as well as to small-to-medium-sized enterprises. Despite this, BMI maintains a cautious3G/4G forecast for Benin, which is based on the cost of higher-value data services such as 3G and 4G.

- We predict that the number of wireline voice connections will fall to around 164,000 by 2020, down from173,000 at the end of 2015.
