ATMIA today published its 2020 International IAD (Independent ATM Deployer) Study for Africa, which paints a big picture of opportunities for retail ATM deployment across varying emerging markets on the big African continent. It is the latest research report in ATMIA’s global series of IAD studies.
The content is both deep-diving and wide-ranging, covering key economic and financial services indicators like GDP, inflation, banked population, bank data, ATM, cash use, and digital money use data, as well as social factors which impact on opportunities for future investments in ATM deployment, such as population size, urbanization rates, literacy rates, corruption, governance and political conflict issues, and even environmental considerations. The data sets cover multiple countries but this abundance of data does not overwhelm the reader; rather, the author blends them seamlessly into a well-narrated analysis.
There are also Key Market Snapshots, or country profiles, for South Africa, Nigeria, Egypt, Mauritius, Namibia, Botswana, Kenya, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. In addition, the Appendices and Indices provide invaluable reference material for your study of IAD opportunities in Africa.
With hundreds of millions of active mobile phone accounts in Africa, the possibilities for financial inclusion through massively increased ATM deployment represent an exciting prospect for our industry throughout the 2020s and beyond.
