TowerXchange’s analysis of the tower market in the Middle East & North Africa

The Middle East and North Africa is the region the least penetrated by the towerco business model globally. Whilst a handful of build-to suit towercos have emerged, fewer than 6% of the region’s 275,104 towers sit in independent towerco hands, largely belonging to Saudi Telecom Company’s (stc) captive towerco, TAWAL.

In North Africa, some operators have embraced infrastructure sharing more readily than their counterparts in the Middle East, with an active sharing agreement in place in Tunisia and approximately one third of towers in Egypt being shared, but on the whole infrastructure sharing between MENA’s MNOs has been limited.
