Algeria is the largest telecom market in the Greater Maghreb region and is estimated to generate revenue of $4.4bn in 2015. The telecom services revenues will grow at a CAGR of 4.8% over the period 2015-20, driven by the growth in mobile services revenues, primarily from mobile data owing to increasing popularity of 3G services. Though VoIP will be the fastest growing segment, mobile data is estimated to contribute around 31% of telecoms service revenue in 2020 versus 18% in 2015 The fixed telecom segment is still monopolized by AlgErie TElEcom, whereas the mobile segment has three operators: Djezzy, Mobilis and Ooredoo Algeria, with each of them offering 3G services. The commercial launch of 4G services is still awaited and the ministry of ICT announced in 2015 that LTE mobile services would be launched by year-end 2015. However, the regulator has not yet launched the auction. With the expected eventual launch of 4G mobile services, handset vendors may leverage the opportunity to introduce new devices to the market and operators can leverage increased data usage to drive up revenues.

Key Findings
- The overall telecom service revenue in Algeria is estimated to increase by 9.8% in Algerian dinars versus 2014 but decrease 7.7% in dollar terms due to local currency depreciation.

- From 2015 to 2020, the Algerian telecommunications market will see service revenue grow at a 4.8% CAGR in dollar terms, boosted by mobile and fixed broadband infrastructure developments.

- This growth will be fueled by 3G network coverage expansion and attractive data packages, the expected launch of mobile 4G, the development of fiber infrastructure projects, and the recent launch of fixed LTE.

- Mobile revenue will account for 85.5% of the total telecom market in 2020, up from 84.9% in 2015. Mobile data will be an important driver of this trend, as it will expand at a 15.7% CAGR from 2015 to 2020.

- We expect the number of fixed access lines - circuit-switched voice, VoIP and broadband - to increase to 8.5m in 2020, up from 6.1m in 2015.

- Djezzy, the mobile leader, has been struggling recently to maintain its market share, facing aggressive competition from Ooredoo Algeria and Mobilis. But the lifting of restrictions on its currency transfers, after the state acquired a 51% stake in the operator, will help Djezzy maintain its leadership position.

- The fixed space remains under the monopoly of the incumbent, AlgErie TElEcom, which, combined with its mobile wing Mobilis, will account for 34.2% of market revenue in 2015. The government owns 51.6% of the telecom sector (in value terms) in Algeria.
