7 out of 10 of the fastest-growing markets are represented by African countries and they are expected to achieve a compound growth rate of more than 7.2% per year, meaning their market will double in size each decade. Airports are primed as the gateway to African destinations whilst playing a vital role in driving economic expansion and diversification.

Hence, with over 80 projects in the pipeline valued at US$45.3 billion, Africa represents one of the most vivid and fastest growing continents in the infrastructure development space. With so much projected growth, countries across Africa are actively working to improve their airport infrastructure so they can attract passengers and bolster their economies.
