Africa - fastest-growing mobile region

Youth to drive subscriber growth across SSA, says GSMA study

Sub-Saharan Africa will remain the world’s fastest-growing mobile region over the coming years as millions of young African consumers become mobile users for the first time, according to a new GSMA study. It reveals that more than 160 million new unique mobile subscribers will be added across the region by 2025, bringing the total to 623 million, representing around half of the region’s population, up from 456 million (44 per cent) in 2018. Subscriber additions will be concentrated in high-growth markets such as Nigeria and Ethiopia, the report says.

The new report ‘The Mobile Economy, Sub-Saharan Africa 2019’ is authored by GSMA Intelligence, the research arm of the GSMA. To access the full report and related infographics, visit: https://www.gsma.com/r/mobileeconomy/sub-saharan-africa/
