Yemen’s cellular and Internet markets maintain healthy growth while the fixed lines market stagnates
Monday, September 13, 2010

The Yemeni cellular market registered healthy growth due to the high competition between the four operators. The market grew at a 40.26% CAGR between 2005 and 2009. A new report from Arab Advisors Group fully analyzes the Yemeni telecommunications markets. 


Yemen’s Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technology (MTIT) regulates the country’s telecommunications market. The Government of Yemen also fully owns and directly oversees the operations of the monopoly fixed line operator, Public Telecommunications Corporation (PTC), the Internet (through Yemen Net and Y Net) and owns a controlling stake in the CDMAcellular operator, Yemen Mobile, a subsidiary of the PTC.


The Yemeni cellular market is booming. Cellular lines grew at a CAGR of 40.26% between 2005 and 2009. The cellular penetration rate soared to 41.29% by end of Q1 2010 up from a humble 10.4% in 2005. This rapid growth, the Arab Advisors Group believes is due to the competition between the four cellular operators.
