The Telecoms Service Market in the Middle East and North Africa will Grow at a Modest 0.7% Over the Next 5 Years, from USD69.5 Billion in 2017 to USD72.1 Billion in 2022

Favourable demographic trends, coupled with continued investment in fixed infrastructure, will underpin robust growth in fixed broadband services in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Total fixed revenue growth will gradually slow down over the forecast period, however, due to the accelerating decline in fixed voice service revenue.

  • a 5-year forecast of 44 fixed KPIs for the MENA region as a whole and for six key countries
  • an in-depth analysis of the trends, drivers and forecast assumptions for each type of fixed service, and for key countries
  • an overview of operator strategies and country-specific topics, which highlights similarities and differences between countries
  • a summary of results, key implications and recommendations for fixed operators.
