Manufacturing in Africa on the Rise

Domestic as well as foreign manufacturing in many Sub-Saharan countries in Africa is on the rise. Recent examples of a growing economy are Ethiopia, Kenya and Nigeria. The share of manufacturing in GDP of sub-Saharan Africa has been steady at 10-14 percent in recent years. The industrial output in the world’s fastest-growing continent is now expanding at the same pace as the rest of the economy.
