Summary
The telecommunications market in Ghana generated revenue of $1.1bn in 2015. Overall services revenue will grow at a CAGR of 1.0% over the 2015-2020 period, mainly aided by the growth in the mobile data segment, which is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 14.7% over the forecast period. We expect mobile subscriptions in Ghana to grow at a CAGR of 7.0%, over 2015-2020. Going forward, operators should leverage opportunities existing in mobile broadband services, while vendors should position themselves to support operators' 3G and 4G network expansion plans to cater to the rising data demands by end users.
