Devine’s primary area of focus will be the Sub-Saharan Africa region. He specialises in operator strategies, market developments and technology trends within the sub-region.
With more than 15 years’ experience, Devine has extensive knowledge and understanding of the region and has advised many industry players on strategy and competition aspects, and on demand trends for content and applications in emerging markets.
His appointment is part of Analysys Mason's ongoing commitment to helping clients across the region with their unique challenges.
Before joining Analysys Mason, Devine was Principal Analyst at Informa Telecoms and Media (now Ovum). Prior to that, Devine was a consultant in Norway with Teleplan Consulting AS and DeccoCon Research & Consulting Ltd. He also previously held a post as product manager for Mercury Mobile International, managing product development and a go-to-market strategy for the rollout of a mobile platform.
Devine has spent considerable time on the ground in the region speaking to TMT clients and has a deep knowledge of the Sub-Saharan African telecoms landscape.
“The telecoms markets in Africa have grown immensely over the last decade, supported by rapid GDP growth, and there is still room for further development over the next few years, driven by demand for voice and increasingly for data services,” says Devine Kofiloto, Principal Analyst at Analysys Mason.
“However, these markets are undergoing many changes in terms of structure, regulation and competition, requiring operators to seek efficiencies in their costs of service delivery while pursuing revenue growth through service diversification.”
Analysys Mason's Middle East and Africa (MEA) programme offers quantitative and qualitative insights into the telecoms markets in the region, including in-depth coverage of 23 key countries.
