The first edition of the report ‘The Lighting Fixtures Market in Africa’ offers a comprehensive analysis of the market for lighting fixtures and lamps in 23 African countries (Algeria, Angola, Botswana, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Tunisia and Uganda). For each country, it provides figures for consumption and production in 2013, and trade flows (imports and exports, specified for lighting fixtures and lamps) from 2009 to 2013.
The Report is divided in two parts. In the first part, there is an analysis of basic data for production, consumption and international trade in 2013, with total market shares and market value. There is then an analysis of activity trends between 2009 and 2013, as well as an analysis of the competitive system, detailing the leading local and foreign players present in the market, and presenting short profiles for almost 80 companies, distinguished by geographical region and the country in which they operate. To conclude the first part, demand drivers offer the main macroeconomic variables necessary to put the market in context and analyse recent economic trends in Africa.
The second part of the Report offers an in-depth analysis for each of the 23 countries covered by this study. For each of them, data about lighting fixtures and lamps consumption, production, international trade, and major macroeconomic indicators, including access to electricity, urban population, paved roads, international tourism, population and business climate indicators, are provided.
Among the considered products: Residential lighting, Commercial lighting, Industrial lighting, Outdoor lighting, as well as Incandescent lighting, Fluorescent lighting, LED lighting, Gas discharge and Metal Halide lighting.
Countries covered by the Report (in green)
The lighting fixtures and lamps market in Africa (analysis of 23 countries) is worth over US.2 billion at factory prices. Since 2009, the market of lighting fixtures and lamps has risen steadily, at an average annual rate of growth of 13%. The expected annual growth in the years to come is assessed between 10% and 15%.
Egypt and South Africa are the most important producers and consumers of lighting products. Among top exporters, we also list Tunisia and Morocco, while Algeria, Angola, Nigeria and Sudan are relevant as importers.
100 leading manufacturers hold approximately 32% of the African market for lighting fixtures and lamps.
The lack of access to electricity is one of the major impediments to economic development. While most developed North African countries (Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia) have a national grid that covers the entire territory, sub-Saharan Africa still struggles in getting electricity at home or on secondary streets. Even in South Africa, where cities are almost fully lighted (94.3% of urban population has access to electricity), just 64.1% of the rural population has access to electric light. In some of the less developed regions of Africa, such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Madagascar, Mozambique, Tanzania and Uganda, approximately 85% of the population is cut out of the national electricity grid. LED and solar lighting could contribute to local development.
