Kenya ICT Market Overview

Market Overview
Going by various Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and IDC's market sizing for the Kenyan ICT market, the sector has performed well with good growth in value, usage and access (across most sectors) between 2010 and 2011. As more infrastructure is put in place the ICT expenditure focus will shift to services (maintenance, support, implementation, customization, etc) and software (custime software development, mobility, business analytics, etc). The cost of devices and internet services still remains a constraint that keeps more users from adopting ICT and current users from increasing their usage. Less advanced regional markets (in terms of skills, ICT sophistication and size of projects) in Eastern Africa continue to attract the attention of several local players who are expanding their presence to these markets. Overall the Kenyan ICT market continues to thrive and from 2013 onwards, the most notable issues will include: the new government structure as county governments wean themselves away from national governments to become more autonomous, increased investment by vendors, increased venture capital activity aimed at start ups and developments with the 4G shared network infrastructure.

Highlights Kenya ICT Market Key Indicators


International traffic grew by an impressive 162.0% between 2010 and 2011 and mainly riding on increased internet subscriptions that were mainly comprised of mobile data connections. .

The total number of households with a personal computer (PC) grew from 6.3% to 8.0%.
Internet users was recorded as 17.38 million users from 10.99 million recorded during the previous year. Fixed lines declined to 283,546 in 2012 from 355,493 in 2011, representing a decline of 25.5% during that period. The total number of students connected to broadband rose from 176,000 in 2010 to 250,000 in 2011 indicating an increase of 42% increase year on year. The number of universities connected to broadband services increased from 60 in 2010 to 65 in 2011 and mainly attributed to some educational institutions that have multiple campuses getting connected to KENET. The number of registered government domain names reduced in 2011 largely due to lack of renewal of domains mainly by local government entities (municipal and county councils). Most previously registered domains have been allowed to lapse.

Kenya ICT Ecosystem Highlights 1/2


Vendors In Kenya there are between 20-30 vendors with a direct presence in the country with the main function of business and channel development, product support, capacity building, and in some cases dealing directly with big companies (multinational companies and large accounts)/ Distributors There are between 20-30 distributors of software and hardware, with some focusing on very niche markets and others distributing products across the channel to big systems integrators, telecommunication providers. A good number of distributors act as a vendor presence in the market. Tier 1 VARs These would number between 30 and 40 systems integrators mostly with nationwide presence and targeting mainly the enterprise sector with infrequent business among the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) segment. In this layer there is a lot of emphasis on value addition and therefore IT Services contributing as a major revenue stream. Tier 2 VARs - This layer comprises market players focused mainly on the SME segment with lesser nationwide presence and in some cases focused on regions outside Nairobi (e.g. Coast, Rift Valley, Central). There are anything between 80 and 120 players in this segment. Retail market players Players focused mostly on "off the shelf" types of business, moving hardware and selling single user software licences, peripherals and so on. Their main focus is on the consumer segment but often supplying the SMB segment with good that do not require support or significant after sales service.

Kenya ICT Ecosystem National and Regional Presence


National presence
Less than 40% of the local companies have a presence in Mombasa, followed by Kisumu, 26.3% and Eldoret 10.5%.
Some towns are viewed as satellites of other nearby towns, especially in the Nyanza, Rift Valley and Western Provinces. E.g. players may elect to have a presence in Eldoret in order to reach out to Nyanza and Western provinces.

Regional presence

While Uganda is a smaller market than both Ethiopia and Tanzania, more local players have invested there (23.9% compared to 14.1% and 19.7% respectively in the other two countries. This is mainly due to the more relaxed investment environment in Uganda.

Kenya ICT Ecosystem Kenya as a regional Hub


Southern Sudan has recently become a main focus area for local players despite the high risks of operating in that country and its high dependence on oil for foreign exchange. Nonetheless, some companies are willing to take risks, especially to pursue opportunities in government and with International NGOs. While Tanzania as a member of both the East African Community (EAC) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) is more inclined towards more cordial relations and trade with SADC countries. Indeed elsewhere in the economy there are many investments from South Africa in the mining, energy and financial sectors. Among the other countries where about 17% of local players either have a presence or are undertaking major projects include: Democratic Republic of Congo; Ghana; India; Malawi; Mauritius; Mozambique; Nigeria; UAE; Zambia; Zimbabwe;

Kenya ICT Ecosystem Challenges faced


Challenges Limited and Expensive Financing for projects and importation of goods. Long sales cycles prolonged procurement cycles as well as cyclic spending with government . Doing business with government is also cited as a major problem area owning to protracted procurement cycles. Inconsistent importation regulations and tariffs Import duties and other levies are frequently cited as irregular and mostly stemming from either a poor understanding of different ICT goods or poor definitions of the different classes of ICT products. Lack of ICT skills This is problem not unique to systems integrators and cuts across the entire ICT landscape from the supply side to the demand side. Theft and piracy the culture diminishes value especially for local developers

Total Internet vs Household penetration

Kenya has a higher internet penetration vis a vis South Africa but mainly bolstered by mobile internet connections though with a lower proportion of households connected owing to a declining fixed network and poor development of DSL based services. Kenya compares much better than both Nigeria and Rwanda on both counts Egypt has a much higher overall and household internet penetration with a huge gap of almost 25 percentage points at household level.

Computer Penetration
Kenya has slightly higher PC penetration rates than Nigeria and Rwanda but still very far behind South Africa and Morocco, mostly owing to lower disposable income than these countries.
Population figures for Nigeria (high) and Phillipnes (low) help skew penetration rates either way as do GDP per capita figures when thinking of disposable income and installed base of computers in households.

Household Internet Access vs PC

In terms of PC Access at the household level, Kenya is only better than Rwanda. It should be noted that Nigeria as a manufacturer of PCs (Zinox brand) that are locally affordable, accounts for much higher PC penetration at household levels but negligible household internet penetration given infrastruicture issues (subamrine cables arrived way after they did in East Africa)

Broadband Access Tariffs
Broadband Access Tariffs

Despite additional capacity, cost of broadband is still a factor for business vis a vis other countries. Nigeria has recently got a lot of international bandwidth but constrained somewhat by back bone, last mile access and electricity challenges. Landlocked Rwanda largely relies on bandwidth from operators in neighbouring countries.
