Mapping Africa’s consumer spending landscape

Urbanisation and pockets of increased socio-economic development have resulted in African cities becoming hotspots from a consumer spending perspective. The concentration of individuals increasingly enjoying a rise in discretionary income provides market potential far exceeding that seen outside of these geographies. In this webinar we map Africa’s consumer spending landscape by showing in which cities the most spending is taking place and exploring where we can expect to see the strongest growth in consumer spending over the next decade.

We will be repeating the same webinar to cater for the difference in time zones between the Americas, APAC and EMEA:

  • EMEA – Tuesday 30th March | 10:00 BST (11:00 SAST)
  • Americas – Tuesday 30th March | 16:00 EDT
  • APAC – Wednesday 31st March | 10:00 HKT

On a slow path towards recovery

While the worst may be over for the eurozone economy, the prospect of a quick revival in growth is limited. Activity should pick up stronger in the second half of 2024 as falling inflation supports real incomes and consumer spending, but more restrictive fiscal policy as government priorities shift from providing support to deficit reduction will drag on growth. We expect the ECB to commence with rate cuts in Q2, although growth won’t receive a boost until 2025.
