    Retail in Nigeria is transforming

    Retail in Africa is transforming especially in such countries like Gabon, Nigeria, Rwanda, etc.

    With huge and growing population estimated at about 1 billion, growing urbanization and growing middle class, strong GDP growth rate of about 5%, rising disposable incomes and consumer spending, Africa has become a viable and good investment destination for international retail investment with Nigeria playing a key role.

    The retailing sector in Nigeria, Africa’s largest economy continues to expand, with value sales increasing strongly and faster than real GDP. Growth is being fuelled by the increase in the size of the Nigerian population (particularly in urban areas) estimated at about 160 million and growing at about 2% annually. Other factors are increasing disposable incomes among some segments of the population, the drive by some retailers to ‘modernise‘ retailing and encouraging government policies such as "cashless economy".

    Retail in Nigeria is projected to grow at 12.5% CAGR… and Formal Retail will double in 5 years! Retail in Nigeria is beaming with potentials and opportunities.
