OTT Video in Africa and the Middle East: Improving Telecom Infrastructure and Rising 4G Penetration to Support OTT Growth; New Report Launched

OTT video markets in Africa and the Middle East have significant differences largely due to demographics, economic factors and the telecom landscape across countries. Markets with high adoption rates of pay-TV, fixed broadband and mobile broadband see the most robust and innovative OTT ecosystems, such as UAE and Israel. With the increasing popularity of OTT services an increasing number of mobile operators, pay-TV providers, broadcasters and media companies are expanding into the OTT arena either by partnering with OTT players or by launching their own OTT services.

Examples of OTT services introduced by mobile operators include eLife ON by Etisalat, which is based in UAE, and mView by Saudi telco Mobily, while broadcaster beIN Sports has its own OTT service called beIN Sports Connect. Pay-TV operator OSN has launched GO across MENA while Times Media Group has an OTT service called VIDI in South Africa.

Markets with low pay-TV penetration, low broadband penetration or low smartphone penetration see lower levels of OTT adoption and simpler services. Mobile is increasingly becoming an important medium to deliver OTT service in the region, driven by low bank account penetration and rising mobile data usage.

Key Findings

  • Adoption patterns in the OTT video markets in GCC, MENA and Sub-Saharan Africa vary largely, influenced by factors such as differences in broadband, pay-TV and 4G adoption rates.
  • Telecom operators, broadcasters, media companies and pay-TV operators in the AME region are actively looking to exploit the untapped potential of OTT services and launch new standalone services or services to complement their existing portfolios.
  • Hybrid models with a combination of SVoD, AVoD, TVoD and linear content have been more successful in the region. Live coverage of events such as sports has been a key driver for many OTT services.
  • The absence of international OTT players in the region has created opportunities for regional providers to take advantage of the increasing popularity of OTT services.
  • Owing to rising penetration of affordable mobile data services, mobile will be a key channel to expand the OTT user base. Increasing LTE penetration and the proliferation of low-cost smartphones will further support the growth of mobile-based OTT video services.

More internet investment needed to sustain Africa’s economic growth

There remains considerable activity and investment in Africa’s national and international broadband infrastructure. Many countries have a range of government programs in place aimed at increasing bandwidth availability, and at extending networks deeper into non-urban areas. Submarine cables now provide 20-times more international bandwidth than was the case in 2010: international bandwidth broached 2Tb/s by the end of 2013. In North Africa alone, bandwidth increased 36% in the year, while in Sub-Saharan Africa it grew 39%. Submarine cables have been designed with vast capacity, and by mid-2015 barely 8% of capacity was being utilised. The total length of terrestrial infrastructure has also more than doubled during the last five years. Although these efforts have improved connectivity in many areas, and with it the social and economic benefits needed for sustained growth, much more investment is needed for local economies to capitalise on this growth into the future.

These infrastructure programs are supported by sympathetic regulatory regimes which have encouraged shared infrastructure, facilitated cost-effective overhead cabling, and reduced wholesale access pricing. Some countries have fallen behind in these endeavours, with the inevitable result that diversity has emerged across the continent. Countries such as Morocco now have internet penetration of above 50%, though a number of others, such as Sierra Leone, have penetration rates below 2%.

A number of regional schemes have been developed affecting two or more neighbouring countries, usually with a view to extending submarine cable access to landlocked countries. Regional schemes include the East African Backhaul System (EABS), serving Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi which provide landlocked countries with access to submarine cables. Another is the Central African Backbone (CAB), a $215 million program funded by the World Bank and the African Development Bank to build fibre-optic infrastructure serving 11 countries in the Central African region. The World Bank reported that the disbursement rate of project funds in the Central African Republic had reached 78% by October 2014, while in Cameroon progress is being coordinated by national agencies including MINEPAT.

The region is also on the cusp of further leaps forward as a result of spectrum policies. Governments and regulators are making use of spectrum released from the switch from analogue to digital broadcasting. Although most of the region failed to meet the ITU’s June 2015 deadline for ISO, the process will progress in coming months, and thus into 2016 and 2017 regulators will be in a position to auction these spectrum assets. Mobile network operators will then be able to improve their network capabilities, and drive mobile broadband deeper into non-urban areas.

Rising internet penetration, more marked in some countries than others, is required for the development of applications and services, and to drive growth in local economies. Penetration rates of at least 20% are needed for real socio-economic benefits to be realised. This level of internet connectivity is realistically achievable only through mobile networks. Many countries in Africa have such poor fixed-line infrastructure that telcos and vendors and better placed to invest in mobile infrastructure alone rather than in fixed-line networks. In rural areas as well as in many semi-urban zones mobile networks present a more realistic option for providing voice and data services cost effectively and quickly. This is already the reality in many markets, while regionally about 90% of all internet connections are already provided by mobile broadband.

There have also been continuing investments in building local Internet Exchange Points to reduce dependence on international connectivity for local internet services, so lowering the cost of developing local hosting and application development. The African Internet Exchange System, an African Union project implemented by the Internet Society, aims to have 80% of African users’ internet traffic exchanged within Africa by 2020.

These developments are encouraging for the future growth of the region’s fixed-broadband sector, which will further drive economic progress as well as a range of benefits based on enhanced social inclusion among consumers. Nevertheless, socio-economic forces in many markets has also made theft and vandalism a real concern for operators, while political instability in countries such as Libya has caused considerable upheaval and disruption to services.

  • Understand what factors most influence technology investment, and how this varies by company size and type.
  • Target the segments with the highest opportunity for technology products and services, based on mine type, region, company size and commodity.
  • Segment the market according to those full invested, those partially invested and those not considering investment in each technology.

Key Highlights

  • The top two areas for future technology investment are fatigue management and collision avoidance/proximity-detection tools. These technologies tackle safety issues faced by operators on a day to day level.
  • A significant share of companies in South Africa have invested and are planning further investments into vehicle-related technologies, when compared with the rest of Africa. Of the 19% that had yet to invest in fleet management technologies, all were considering doing so within the next two years.
  • South African mines, in comparison to those in other African nations, had invested far more in mine-site technologies and a large proportion of mines had already full invested in a number of technologies with no further investments were planned. In particular, 38% had full invested in mine scheduling and optimization software and 35% in mine design and modelling software.
  • Only a small percentage of respondents have autonomous vehicles currently active on site (12%). With an even smaller percentage (6%) considering implementing the technology in the coming 2 years. A large proportion, 38%, do not expect to autonomous vehicles at their mines in the foreseeable future.

Overall trends in the data revealed:

  • Customer priorities in supplier selection are product quality and availability of parts
  • Suppliers perform well, but have lower levels of satisfaction in key areas
  • Sandvik received the highest average satisfaction ratings, with Caterpillar considered the leading supplier for most categories of mining equipment
  • Account managers make a significant impact in the selection process, alongside product quality and use of the latest technology
  • Although loyal to their suppliers, customers look for improvement in parts availability and product quality

In July to September 2014, Publisher surveyed 108 mine managers, maintenance managers, procurement managers and other key decision-makers in over 100 operating African mines. The survey primarily assessed heavy mobile equipment, however respondents were also asked about their practices and preferences in areas such as mining software, technology, and maintenance.

Areas of analysis include:

  • Customer priorities when buying mining equipment, with ratings of the importance of 16 separate factors for customers when choosing mining equipment, including cost factors, supplier attributes and product attributes.
  • Ratings of existing suppliers across the same factors, identifying best-performing suppliers and how well suppliers performed versus the importance of each factor.
  • In-depth analysis of the major suppliers, namely Caterpillar, Joy Global, Komatsu, Sandvik and Atlas Copco, including their overall performance ratings and their ratings for each of the factors relative to its importance.
  • Rankings of the leading suppliers for each equipment type, with respondents indicating who they viewed as the top suppliers in Australia for trucks, excavators, loaders, shovels, dozers, drills, continuous miners, longwall systems, engines, tyres, pumps and mining software.
  • Insight into the likelihood of switching supplier and key action points for suppliers for product and service improvements required.
