ATMIA publishes a study of the IAD Market in Africa

SIOUX FALLS, SD (September 21, 2020) — ATMIA has published its 2020 International IAD Study Africa in the association’s popular series of reports on Independent ATM Deployer market opportunities worldwide. This follows earlier studies of the US, Canadian, UK, Australia and German markets.

The 2020 International IAD (Independent ATM Deployer) Study for Africa 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. But the data sets across multiple countries don’t overwhelm the reader because the author blends them seamlessly into a well-narrated analysis.

“The ATM industry in a range of African markets is growing, creating opportunities for investment, especially as the industry moves towards Next Gen ATMs which can link ATMs and mobile phones for a further leap in technology in Africa. I’d like to thank author Leland Englebardt for a study rich in data and insights about these emerging opportunities.”

ATMIA will continue to produce relevant, high-quality, affordably priced industry research. Watch out for the next study in this global series of IAD market reports!
