The telecommunications market in Tunisia is estimated to generate revenue of $1.4bn in 2016 and will grow at a CAGR of 2.1% over the 2015-2020 period, driven by the expansion of 4G by all operators as well as positive developments in the fixed broadband market. The mobile data segment will grow at a CAGR of 3.4% over the 2015-2020 period, whereas fixed Internet will register a CAGR of 6.9%. We expect mobile subscriptions in Tunisia to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% over 2015-2020, driven by new service portfolios, the introduction of 4G services in the country and the launch of MVNOs (like Lycamobile). Going forward, operators should seize opportunities arising out of growth in 4G, fixed broadband services, the B2B segment and digital services. For vendors, opportunities lie in operators' network expansion plans as well as offering smart services to operators aiming to target enterprises.
