Description du rapport

Pyramid Research estimates that total telecom services revenue in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) will be US$1.8bn in 2015. Over the next five years, we expect DRC's total market revenue to grow at a CAGR of 9.4%, to reach $2.8bn in 2020. Despite lower PPP-adjusted GDP per capita, the DRC's telecom market size is larger than that of regional markets including Sudan, Tanzania and Cameroon. Service revenue growth in the DRC over the next five years will be primarily driven by the continued growth in subscription acquisition as operators continue to expand their mobile networks into rural regions. Currently, the majority of network coverage is concentrated in urban regions. Mobile subscription population penetration will grow from an estimated 67.4% in 2015 to about 110% by 2020.
