Highlights from the latest "South Africa Country Intelligence Report" Watch the Preview
We expect South Africa’s telecom market revenue to grow at a slow 2% CAGR over the forecast period, from $17.8bn in 2012 to $19.6bn in 2017. The mobile segment once again dominated the telecom sector in 2011, generating $13.4bn of total market revenue. However, as competition increases among operators, we expect that market revenue will follow a similar trend, particularly for the voice segment.
Over the next few years the most significant growth in the market should occur in mobile data and fixed VoIP services. We project that mobile data revenue will more than double from its 2011 figure of $2.4bn to reach $6.8bn by 2017. The rise of VoIP will be similarly meteoric and can be credited to continuing innovations, such as cross-border VoIP telephony to help consumers beat the exorbitant roaming charges they continue to face when traveling. As telecom companies continue to target businesses with broadband Internet services, we anticipate that this segment will grow. However, changes will be marginal in terms of revenue due in part to fluctuations in the local currency.
