Automotive

The automotive market is diverse. It ranges from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and component manufacturers, to dealerships and commercial vehicle manufacturers. Financial pressures, industry restructuring, changing consumer preferences, fluctuating fuel prices and the growing demand for more environmentally friendly vehicles are transforming the world’s automotive industry.

Transport in Africa 

Well-developed transport infrastructure is critical for the efficient functioning of an economy. It facilitates trade by reducing the cost and time of moving goods to where there is a market for it; it also makes it possible for people to travel, or to move to regions where there are jobs available. Good transport infrastructure and services have a massive impact on productivity and economic development. The lack of good transport infrastructure is, however, a key constraint to economic development in Africa.

Figures from the World Economic Forum’s 2012/13 Global Competitiveness Report (GCR) show that only seven African countries’ transport infrastructure is above par on a global stage (see graph below). The African countries with better infrastructure are generally located in North and Southern Africa.
