Mani James, Operations Manager,

Frost & Sullivan Africa

Ross McLean, President, Dow Chemicals Africa

Seven of the fastest growing economies in the world are in Africa. A total of 40 percent of Africans lack access to safe drinking water and only 30 percent of the rural population has access to all-season roads. These challenges will translate into massive opportunities for the chemicals sector over the coming years.

“There are significant opportunities for chemicals manufacturers and suppliers,” notes Frost & Sullivan Operation Manager for Frost & Sullivan Africa, Mani James. “Supply chain efficiencies, for one, will be a key factor to succeed when doing business in Africa. Identifying these areas of opportunity will enable chemicals companies to not only grow and expand their business, but also improve their overall market share.”

This briefing will highlight:

  • Mega Trends Frost & Sullivan has predicted for the chemicals sector over the past 5 years and which ones have developed so far
  • How Africa should be aligned with the growth strategy of chemicals companies
  • Case study – The Dow Chemicals Company success story and how the organisation has improved market share by aligning their growth strategy with the right opportunities in Africa

This briefing will benefit global and African chemical manufacturers and suppliers, distributors, government agencies, as well as major end users.

A live question and answer session will follow the presentation.

If you are interested in attending the briefing, or wish to receive a copy of the presentation slides and a link to the audio recording, kindly email your full name, job title, company name, company telephone number, company email address and website, city, state and country.
