3. Building and Construction Supplies:
Africa is going through a construction boom, an opportunity that will certainly create a lot of wealth for entrepreneurs on the continent. High building and construction activities are often signs of growing economies. When the economy looks good, the demand for residential, commercial and all kinds of real estate usually goes through the roof. The successful delivery of the government and the private sector infrastructure programs depends on the effective functioning of many stakeholders – including the building and construction materials sector. Against the need for a healthy building and construction materials sector, the cidb has developed this report on the building and construction materials sector. A key focus of this study has been on:
• Opportunities and challenges in the building and construction materials sector, and specifically;
• Opportunities for new job creation, enterprise development, and empowerment in the building and construction materials sector.
Cement is just one example of several building and construction supplies that are growing in demand across Africa.
4. Fashion & Beauty:
Africa’s fashion and beauty market is developing at an impressive rate. The continent’s overwhelmingly young population provides a ready market for trendy fashion. All kinds of apparel, including locally-made fabrics and imported designer labels have become hot-selling products across Africa’s rapidly expanding urban areas. Africa has hundreds of rising stars who are building successful businesses in the fashion and beauty industry. The beauty industry in the Middle East and Africa was estimated at about $20.4 billion in 2011, according to the market research company Euromonitor International. South Africa alone represented $3.9 billion; Nigeria and Kenya are second and third among sub-Saharan nations, with Kenya’s market totaling more than $260 million. Over all, Africa is the next frontier for global luxury goods brands. African fashion has enjoyed massive media presence in recent times, which means the world is now aware of the industry and the capabilities of its designers.
5. Fiber Optics + Internet service provision.
As Africa open up to the world, there is a tremendous increase in the demand for quality telecommunication and internet service. Take for instance, video and web conferencing, web TV are yet to fully utilized in Africa because of the poor internet speed experienced in most African countries.
This is where the need for Fiber optics cable comes in. This opens doors for outsourcing business and e-commerce ventures as the price of internet connection will be lower. In my country Nigeria, companies such as MainOne and Glo have taken the lead in the laying of fiber optics cable but the industry is not yet competitive; and other African countries are still untapped.
6. Power generation.
Nigeria’s need for infrastructure in the field of power generation. The government in fact has announced its plan to attract $100 billion in investments over the next five years for its power sector. And when there is a need to be satisfied, there are much business opportunities behind.
In fact, there is a plan privatization process in place and to be sincere with you; power generation is the next big business not only in Nigeria but Africa as a whole. In fact, power generation is highly untapped because the primary source of power in Africa is Hydro and it is still under-utilized while solar, wind, nuclear, etc are still untapped.
