"Cellular data traffic in the Middle East and North Africa will be 484% higher in 2021 than in 2016 – mobile operators must monetise this growth."

Mobile network operators in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) hope that cellular data traffic growth will drive increases in their revenue. This report analyses traffic growth over the period until 2021 and the constraints on this growth.

THIS REPORT PROVIDES:
- 5-year forecasts of wireless data traffic for MENA as a whole, and for selected countries
- worldwide context and specific country commentary for four key countries: Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and UAE
- analysis of the key trends in, and drivers and inhibitors of, data traffic
- a discussion of the enablers of future capacity on wireless networks and the cost of supplying that capacity
- analysis of the trends in private and public usage, and their effect on the use of mobile and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The forecast dataset underpinning this report covers:
- mobile data: data delivered over mobile (cellular) networks to: handsets (typically smartphones); mid-screen devices (typically tablets); USB modems, routers and other standalone data devices; median usage per smartphone; and downstream and upstream
- Wi-Fi data: data delivered over private Wi-Fi connections (at home or work) to handsets and mid-screen devices, and data delivered to all devices using public Wi-Fi connectivity.

The report assesses the enablers of future capacity on wireless networks and the cost of supplying that capacity.
It also analyses the trends in private and public usage, and their effect on the use of mobile and Wi-Fi connectivity.

This report is based on Analysys Mason’s:
- internal research and modelling
- consumer surveys on smartphone and tablet usage.

Our forecasts are informed and sense-checked by on-the-ground regional market experts.
