PRODUCTS AT THE FINAL STAGE
Egypt is the MENA region’s largest industrial base, and the plastics industry, in particular, is continuously rising and becoming more modernised.
Egypt, with a population of over 100 million people, has Africa’s largest polymer market, accounting for almost 20% of demand in 2017. The country’s polymer consumption is predicted to be 2 million tonnes, with a per capita consumption of 21.8 kg.
Egypt’s plastics industry received $7.8 billion in investments in 2016, and growth will be in line with Africa’s average. It is predicted to increase at a pace of 7.4% per year, bringing consumption to 2.8 million tonnes by 2022.
