Slide of the month (SOTM) August. Steel demand in Africa

The demand for steel in Africa has been growing due to various drivers. africon has over the years conducted more than 200 interviews with decision makers and key industry experts from the continent for our clients. Through one recent research for a machinery supplier, we were able to highlight increased government spending, growing investments in electrification projects and urbanization as some of the key drivers of steel demand. We were also able to show the demand per selected country. Through our extensive knowledge and contacts, we are continuing to help reduce cost, risk and time for our clients in the sector.
