Brazil’s new shape
An unprecedented volume of M&A is transforming the country’s tower landscape ahead of 5G
After a few years of recession with very little organic growth and poor M&A activity, Brazil is emerging again as one of the fastest growing and most dynamic tower markets in Latin America. Its huge population of 211mn demands lots of data and a recovering economy is attracting international investors and new players. Consolidation is happening in both the telecom and tower sectors and the preparation for 5G, with an auction scheduled for November, will guarantee plenty of action. Welcome back, Brazil.
