Industry speaks to Concrete.TV on Africa's diverse infrastructure opportunities
The African infrastructure market provides a unique gateway into doing business across the continent’s high growth and high risk markets. The subcontinent requires 40 million tonnes of new cement capacity alone in order to meet rising urbanisation and growth rates with the region’s population forecast to grow from 1.1 billion people in 2013 to 2.4 billion by 2050.
Both industry titans and new entrants into the local marketplace find value in Africa’s infrastructure industry because the platform provides an outlet for construction business development alongside practical insight into managing daily operations in the African context.
The 4th African Construction and Totally Concrete Expo event unites the world’s leading pioneers of concrete, infrastructure and construction bringing together African and international expertise with more than 100 world-renowned expert speakers that share their expertise into new insights and aspects of Africa’s infrastructure sector.
Koketso Seripe, sales director of Fluor South Africa says “Infrastructure is the next best thing in Africa as it is a constraint currently facing the continent”.
