BMI View: The Sierra Leone mobile market falls far behind its regional peers in terms of mobile marketpenetration and is expected to remain so over the course of our forecast period. Based on the latest reportsfrom Orange - which is acquiring Airtel's local unit - and Africell, we estimate there were around 4.6mnmobile subscriptions at the end of 2015. Nevertheless, given the lack of regularly reported market data andclear methodologies, we highlight that these figures are subject to change upon release of moreinformation.The mobile market has five competitors, with the latest launching in H114, although international playersAfricell and Airtel control 90% of subscriptions. Developments in the wireline segment are few, andgrowth in the overall telecoms market will be driven by demand for wireless voice and data services.Growth of cellular subscribers will not be explosive over the course of our forecast period but will show arecovery following market contraction during the Ebola outbreak. Furthermore, growth in the 3G marketshould also be strong. The purchase of Airtel's operations by France's Orange will inject renewed impetusfor competition in the market.
