Summary

Growing mobile data demand, deployment of LTE technology along with 3G network expansion is increasing pressure on network operators' existing wireless infrastructure, thereby creating the need for adding additional tower sites. Moreover, with saturated mature urban markets, MNOs are accelerating expansion into rural areas creating greater need for cell sites and providing opportunities for specialized tower companies. Key tower markets in Africa include Nigeria, Tanzania, Ghana, DRC, and Egypt. On the other hand, currently the Middle East tower market has witnessed limited activity.

Key Findings

- Tower infrastructure occupies a significant proportion of network operators' capital and operating expenditure, and in a move to drive down costs and focus on densification, launch LTE/LTE-A, develop innovative products and create customer loyalty, the concept of independent tower companies has emerged in the Middle East and Africa in recent years.

- Escalating mobile data demand, the deployment of LTE technology along with 3G network expansion is increasing pressure on network operators' existing wireless infrastructure, creating the need for additional tower sites. Moreover, with low opportunity in mature urban markets, operators are accelerating expansion into rural areas creating greater need for cell sites and presenting opportunities for specialized tower companies.

- Although the potential for tower companies in the Middle East and Africa is high, the region is challenged with significant hurdles such as political instability, lack of licensing regimes, rising fuel cost (Africa), erratic power supply, bureaucratic issues, low economies of scale in rural expansion and the emergence of small cell technology, among others. The strength of these forces varies from country to country.
