We use various data collection methodologies when we undertake in-country market surveys which include telephonic, face-to-face, and in-depth interviews, user panel research, and focus groups. Africa Analysis is a corporate member of the Southern African Marketing Research Association (SAMRA).

Market, Customer and Competitor Analysis

We analyse market trends by looking into customer demographics, buying behaviour, technology adoption, technology development, and consumer and business demographics. We size and forecast markets in terms of revenue and customers. We track and analyse competitors’ products, pricing, developments, market share and strategies. We analyse and assess specific target markets based on ability to buy, price sensitivity, product substitution, reach, products and service demand, and marketing messages.

Consulting Services
We help clients develop strategies, we support M&A transactions and we license bids. We assist government departments with policy and regulation development, including spectrum valuation. We provide technical due diligence, network design and costing services. We also provide expert witness services.

Africa Focus and Reach

Our focus remains on Africa, even though we have completed projects in Eastern European and Middle Eastern markets. With permanent offices in South Africa, Kenya and Nigeria, and a network of partnered field offices in a number of strategic African countries, Africa Analysis’ capability extends across the entire continent.

This puts us in a unique position of being one of a very few strategic market analysis companies who developed such an in-depth footprint in Africa. The projects we have taken on, have seen our analysts and consultants travel extensively across Africa. In the process, we have amassed an impressive client base and much coveted knowledge.  Our reputation lends itself to being impeccable with our word and consistent in our deliverables, which directly contributes to our African reach.

Market Experience

All Africa Analysis’ analysts and consultants spend a fair share of their time in various African countries on projects and actively keep abreast of developments in the ICT and related xTech sectors.

Our team members have extensive knowledge and understanding of the African telecommunications, IT and digital media markets, having completed numerous projects in 30 African countries and beyond. This gives us a fundamental understanding of both individual countries and regional telecommunications markets.

Collectively, we have undertaken projects in most of the African countries.

IP and Skills Investment
