With more than 350 million passengers expect to travel to and from Africa by 2020, get insights into the fastest-growing markets in infrastructure developments

The majority of Africa’s bigger economies are carrying out major airport building and expansion efforts in anticipation of ever-rising air passenger numbers. 7 out of 10 of the fastest-growing markets are represented by African countries and they are expected to achieve a compound growth rate of more than 7.2% per year, meaning their market will double in size each decade. Airports are status symbols in their role as gateway announcements to African destinations, but also play vital roles in economic expansion.

This is why countries like Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria and Ghana have allocated almost 60% of their annual national expenditures to a key infrastructural sector like the transportation one.

Hence, with an overall of 80 projects in the pipeline valued at US$45.3 billion, Africa represents one of the most vivid and fast-growing continent in the infrastructure development scenario.
