Unlocking a Digital Future: Dive into Africa’s Connectivity Revolution at ITW Africa 2023

Nairobi, the vibrant capital of Kenya, sets the stage for the first ITW Africa, uniting more than 350 influential businesses from Africa’s digital infrastructure sector. With over 850 registrants, this event brought together a multifaceted and influential group of professionals, igniting discussions and collaborations poised to propel Africa’s digital infrastructure industry into the future. The collaborative energy nurtured lively discussions, insights, and strategic partnerships that help to forge a more interconnected future for Africa. 

In this article, we unravel the key market drivers that were discussed at ITW Africa 2023 and how businesses can take advantage of them by partnering with DT One. 

Fuelling Progress in Africa: Key Market Drivers

1. Embracing Stability & Security

Increased investment in Sub-Saharan African markets provides Africa with a competitive edge to global counterparts. Governments are also investing into cloud infrastructure and state procurement, which are key growth drivers for African connectivity. 

2. Enhanced Connectivity

The SIM penetration rate in Sub Saharan Africa is expected to reach 89% by 2025, achieving 1.09 billion SIM connections (excluding licensed cellular IoT). Meanwhile, broadband access is developing slowly in the majority of African markets. To close the connectivity gap investment is being made into fiber network projects. 

3. Legislation

A robust legislative environment ensures better enforcement of data regulations, which creates new opportunities and ensures a secure digital infrastructure. 

4. Sustainability

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance are high priorities in African markets, emphasising the need for environmental action. 

5. A Growing & Young Population

Africa has the youngest population in the world, with 70% of sub-Saharan Africa under the age of 30. As a result, consumer behavior is changing which is driving the need for connectivity across the region.
