Description du rapport

Pyramid Research estimates that total telecom service revenue in the Central African Republic will be $49.0m in 2015. Over the next five years, we expect the Central African Republic's total market revenue to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% to reach $61.7m in 2020. The telecom market is one of the least developed in the region and significantly smaller than other markets such as Togo, Benin, and Mali. A key reason for this is the ongoing internal conflict that has constrained development of the market. Service revenue growth over the next five years will be driven primarily by mobile services as operators continue to invest in increasing their network coverage. However, in the short-term the telecom market will be significantly hampered by ongoing security issues and political instability.

Key Findings

- Pyramid Research expects total telecom revenue to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% during 2015-2020 to reach $61.7m. The volatile political and security situation will dampen growth in the short-term.
