Africa’s population growth continues to soar, and it is expected to reach approximately 2.5 billion by 2050, according to the United Nations, meaning the continent will be home to 25 percent of the global population. This projected population growth will increase demand for infrastructure, energy and real estate projects, mostly in the major cities. Economic hubs, including Cairo, Lagos, Luanda, Dar es Salaam, Nairobi, and Addis Ababa, are home to over 65 million people, a figure set to rise to 100 million by 2030. These cities and others will enter their next phase of growth, which will be major pillars unleashing a wealth of investment opportunities in the sector.
