Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC): Country Intelligence Report

Summary

“Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC): Country Intelligence Report”, a new Country Intelligence Report by GlobalData, provides an executive-level overview of the telecommunications market in the DRC today, with detailed forecasts of key indicators up to 2022. Published annually, the report provides detailed analysis of the near-term opportunities, competitive dynamics and evolution of demand by service type and technology/platform across the fixed telephony, broadband and mobile markets, as well as a review of key regulatory trends.

Total telecom service revenue in the DRC reached $1.1bn in 2017, a decline of 14.2% from 2016, which is mainly due to restricted consumer spending amid a lethargic economic scenario, high inflation and political instability. Total revenue will decline further until 2020 before recovering in 2021 and growing to $1bn by 2022, led by the mobile data segment. Mobile voice revenue represented 68.3% of total revenue in 2017 but will decline over 2017-2022 to reach $605.6bn by 2022, due to falling mobile voice ARPU as a result of competition-induced voice tariff cuts, discounts and bonus call minutes extended by operators.
