Map of Africa

Africa

In recent years, Africa has emerged as one of the fastest growing regions in the world for plastics products, which has been reflected in a rapid growth in the number of plastic conversion plants across the continent looking to substitute imported products. The vast diversity of economic conditions across African countries has resulted in different levels of market maturity and growth rates. Even markets of a similar size like Nigeria and South Africa have completely different market characteristics in terms of growth rates and the nature of local plastics processing. 

AMI Consulting has carried out extensive research into the African market in order to identify where and how polymer demand is growing and providing a unique insight into the plastics processing industry. The result is the first and only available market report on Africa, which provides detailed demand analysis by polymer, by process and by country. The research is backed up by a  database of plastics processors in Africa that is available in a MS Access format.

AMI also publishes a series of free digital magazines that provide news, analysis and technical information on a range of plastic processes and markets, including coverage of African markets. AMI's Asian products

AMI also organise the Plastics in Africa conference, which provides a stimulating forum for anyone active in the African plastics industry to get an up-to-date view on the latest market and technical developments and explore future growth opportunities.  The Plastics in Africa 2016 conference takes place on 5 December 2016 in Dubai.
