Industries we feature
Agriculture and manufacturing
Agriculture remains the dominant sector in Africa, in spite of its contribution falling from 56% to 46% since the 1980s, but the composition of its output has changed as dramatically as its value has increased. The improvement in agricultural output is due to better use of arable land and improvements in productivity, for which there is still room for more. This suggests that agriculture still has huge potential which cannot be overlooked.
Beauty and textiles
The global textile and garment industry (including textile, clothing, foot wear and luxury fashion) is currently worth nearly $3,000 trillion. It is an industry that has been belittled in the African continent-until now.
So exactly how are technology and beauty related? Dissatisfaction with traditional beauty products and the demand for new solutions has propelled the intervention of technology in the beauty and cosmetic industry. The increasing use of devices and tools in daily skincare routines is indeed revolutionizing the way we look at beauty and wellness therapies today because not only are they effective, they also deliver efficient results.
Construction and mining
Much like mining operations, construction operations play a pivotal role in the improvement of society. The construction industry safely and effectively makes our lives more comfortable and efficient. From skyscrapers to highways to sewers, construction machinery, such as excavators, dozers, and cranes, help to build a better future.
Eco and renewable energy
The financial sector is embracing renewables—and starting to turn against fossils and nuclear. The exact type and intensity of environmental impacts varies depending on the specific technology used, the geographic location, and a number of other factors. By understanding the current and potential environmental issues associated with each renewable energy source, we can takes steps to effectively avoid or minimize these impacts as they become a larger portion of our electric supply.
Electronics and engineering
Has been the building block upon which the private sector and government entities have established trade relationship with across the continents borders and International markets. The engineering sector underpins a lot of other sectors, such as construction, power, agriculture, manufacturing, telecommunications and so on, it plays a prominent role in its contribution towards economic development. The engineering sector has long stood as a major driver of growth, skills development, job creation and an essential solution in addressing infrastructure deficiencies.
Storage and warehouse packaging
For many years, there was no such thing as a specialised logistics position at most companies. However, with modern globalisation and businesses starting to ship their products outside of their regions, logistics has become a significant part of many companies.Warehousing logistics implies the physical distribution of goods. Such distribution typically incorporates the full supply chain from manufacturer to the end consumer. The logistics warehouse has become a critical and integral part of the process. Globally (and in South Africa), many companies deal in warehousing, as well as delivery.
