Sub-Saharan Africa: The Next Retailing Frontier

Sub Saharan Africa The Next Retailing Frontier

Retailing in Sub-Saharan Africa, with 10% CAGR for 2008-2013, showed the fastest growth globally, driven by socioeconomic factors, such as rising GDP, consumer expenditure and increasing urbanisation. Disposable income in Africa’s largest cities is rocketing, creating a favourable playground for retailers. Encouraged by these developments, international companies, including Shoprite Holding Ltd, Wal-Mart Stores Inc and Internationale Spar Centrale BV, plan further expansion in the region.

High Income Households by City 2013

Emi_US-100000-v1.0-01We release a 2013 update to previously published datagraphic of high income households (defined as household with annual income of at least US$100,000). Over one year, the number of high income households increased by around one million to reach 105 million in 2013, and New York overtook Tokyo as the world's key centre of wealth (mainly as a result of changes in currency exchange rate fluctuations, as numbers are reported in current prices). In fact, the US dominate the top 20 city list of high income households with only seven cities coming from other parts of the world (namely, three cities in Japan, two in Australia and Europe). The geographic concentration of rich households remains astonishing: for example, New York accounts for less than 0.3% of the world's population as of 2013, yet 3.4% of households with an annual income of US$100,000.

This indicates an opportunity for industry players to step up men’s variety, where prospects compare well with those of women’s. Middle Eastern markets, essentially Saudi Arabia and the UAE, will lead in premium unisex fragrances.

Which Countries Have the Highest-Spending Middle Class Households?


To consumer goods businesses, middle class households are highly important because they drive consumer spending, especially spending on discretionary items (that is, all items except food, non-alcoholic drinks and housing). Although the middle class in emerging markets is celebrated for its rapid expansion, their purchasing power remains low. In 2013, a middle class household spent on average US$6,095 in China and US$3,611 in India, compared to US$83,959 in Australia and US$72,994 in the USA.
