Fitch Solutions: Morocco Mobile Market Overview
A deeper look into Morocco’s mobile market and outlook for future growth
The Moroccan telecoms market is now quite mature, with growth in the mobile sector being driven by a move to post-paid premium services, but seasonal spurts mask underlying dynamics. Data usage is growing rapidly, but average revenue per user is seeing flat growth as a result of price competition. Local loop unbundling is still absent and this is holding back the development of the wireline market. Fibre is yet to become a commercially viable proposition, so broadband development is contingent on the continued rollout of 4G services.
The Moroccan mobile market plays host to three mobile network operators (MNOs), all of whom have built and operate their own infrastructures, including towers.
