Africa Focus and Reach

Although we have completed projects in East European and Middle Eastern markets, our focus remains on Africa. This gives our company the unique position of being one of a very few strategic market analysis companies who developed such in-depth experience in the Africa.
These projects have seen the company’s analysts and consultants travel extensively across Africa. The reason Africa Analysis has been able to do this is its reach. With permanent offices in South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria, and a network of partnered field offices in a number of strategic African countries, the company’s capability extends across the entire continent.

The company’s consultants have extensive knowledge and understanding of the African telecommunications, IT and media markets, having completed numerous projects in various African markets and beyond over the past seven years.
