Africa in Focus: The World’s Fastest-Growing Emerging Markets (2024-2029)

As global economic dynamics shift, large emerging markets in Africa are poised to play an increasingly significant role in driving global growth. According to the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) April 2024 World Economic Outlook, these markets are set for robust expansion, driven by demographic changes and a burgeoning consumer class.

Among the African nations, Mozambique is forecasted to lead with an impressive 7.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in real GDP from 2024 to 2029. Following closely are Rwanda at 7.2%, Ethiopia and Niger both at 6.7%, Uganda at 6.6%, and Senegal at 6.3%. These nations are expected to experience economic growth at rates more than double the global average, largely due to their rich natural resource deposits.

Despite these concerns, the outlook for Africa’s emerging markets remains optimistic, promising a bright future fueled by strategic growth and development.
