The Nigerian telecom market grew by 23 percent (in US dollar value) in 2008, generated US$8.4 billion in overall telecom service revenues, notes Yejide Onabule, analyst at Pyramid Research and author of the report. With mobile subscriber penetration at just 42 percent, Nigeria's total telecom revenue is expected to increase at a CAGR of 5.7 percent from US$8.42 billion in 2008 to US$11.14 billion in 2013, Onabule says.
Since liberalization of the market in 2003, Nigeria's telecom industry has experienced exceptional growth rates, which is attracting new operators. The bulk of service revenue will continue to come from mobile, which will generate 83 percent of total service revenue over the next five years, Onabule adds.
Suppliers of mobile network technologies are likely to benefit from more aggressive rollouts of mobile voice and data services, and demand for CDMA and GSM base stations is expected to remain strong over the next several years.
