The emerging markets are making their mark on the mobile sector; many of the less mature regions around the world are showing significant growth and operators around the world are certainly taking note. The worldwide mobile subscriber base is still growing and this can be attributed heavily to the growth in these markets. Mobile phones represent around 90% of all telephone lines in Africa. The continent’s mobile market has been growing consistently at around 50 to 60% every year. Mobile penetration throughout the Middle East is also very high. This report provides an overview of mobile communications in Africa and a brief summary of the market in the Middle East. A separate report is available on Mobile Data & Content for this region.
