At a time when struggling Turkish exporters are looking for ways to diversify their target markets, Africa is poised to become the new frontier market for Turkish firms as they position themselves to become major stakeholders in the regionâ€™s rapidly growing industries.
Africa has recorded an annual growth rate of 5 percent over the last decade and is expected to continue this trend in the coming years. Six out of ten fastest growing economies in the world are now in Africa. Economic predictions indicate that Africa will be a $29 trillion economy in 2050, larger than the 2012 combined GDP of the US and Eurozone.
Kenyaâ€™s pursuit for cheaper power is beckoning with US$ 6.8 billion Lake Turkana Wind Power (LTWP) project expected in the second quarter of 2016.
Phylip Leferink, General Manager of the project said he is pleased with the advancement in the haulage of turbines to the site from the port of Mombasa and between May and June the firm will be set to add more power to the national grid.
He stated once the transmission lines are ready, the project may start a month in advance .â€śWe have installed more than 200 turbines in the past six months, out of the wind 365 turbines required on completion,â€ť he said.
Africa is currently home to five of the fastest growing economies in the world. According to a global study, the continent's economy is forecast to grow to $2.6 trillion in 2020 from $1.6 trillion in 2008, fuelled by booms in mining, agriculture and development of ports, roads and other infrastructure. This rapid economic growth is what is creating substantial new business opportunities in the region.
Over the past decade, Africa's real GDP grew by 4.7% a year, on averageâ€”twice the pace of its growth in the 1980s and 1990s. This growth was observed across all nations and sectors. By 2009, Africa's collective GDP of $1.6 trillion was roughly equal to Brazil's or Russia's, making the continent among the fastest-expanding economic regions in the world today.
The global automotive business is in its most disruptive era since the advent of the industry over a century ago, creating an abundance of opportunities for new and established companies in the global automotive market. Analysts anticipate the market to grow by 2%, reaching 91 million new units sold in 2016.
The African economy has seen steady growth for the past decade and even with sustained low oil and commodity prices, the automotive industry is expected to grow considerably in most countries. Africa is forecast to grow between 3% and 3.7% in 2016 with East Africa retaining its position as the fastest growing region on the continent.
