The Electronics Sector Has Room To Grow In Africa

Untapped African Potential in electronics manufacturing

The recently released “Electrical And Electronics Manufacturing Global Market Forecast To 2022”
had some interesting insights regarding the electronic markets around the world. It answered
questions like:
 Where is the largest and fastest growing market for the electrical and electronics
 How does the market relate to the overall economy, demography and other similar
 What forces will shape the market going forward?

The most interesting results showed that the use of robotics and automation was one of the latest
trends in the electrical and electronics manufacturing market. Many electronic equipment
companies are using robotics and automation to improve plant efficiency and productivity.
It also showed that Asia Pacific is, still, the largest region in the global electrical and electronics
manufacturing market, accounting for 41% of the market in 2018. North America was the second
largest region accounting for 24% of the global electrical and electronics manufacturing market.
Africa was the smallest region accounting for 2% of the market.

These results make it clear that there is a tremendous opportunity for electronic manufacturers in
Africa to use its homegrown advantage to take a significant portion of that market share. It’s also
another reason why CZ Electronics maintains it’s ‘Africa Focus’.
