9 RISE OF THE AFRICAN CONSUMER Africa's economic growth accelerated after 2000, making it the world's 2nd fastest growing region Africa s GDP was 4.2% in 2012 and is projected to accelerate to 4.5% in 2013 and further to 5.2% in 2014 Africa s growth is fuelled by a rising consumer market Several factors are shaping this new consuming class: Africa s population is concentrated in urban areas. This new class of consumer has a smaller family, is better educated, higher earning and is digitally savvy. Africans are exceptionally optimistic about their economic future: 84% say they will be better off in two years. They are both brand and quality conscious, seek out the latest trends but watch the budget, and want a modern and attractive shopping environment.
