The biggest by far
With fewer than four months to go before Tyrexpo Africa 2014 opens its doors at the Sandton Convention Centre, it is already set to be the largest instalment since the show’s launch in 2006. More than 150 exhibitors from all sectors of the tyre and equipment trade have signed up for the show next March.
Show organiser ECI International states that it’s easy to understand the enthusiasm and interest in doing business in South Africa.
“The country is the undisputed powerhouse of the African automotive market. It has the most vehicles, the largest economy and by far the biggest and most dynamic automotive manufacturing, retail and aftermarket business on the continent,” the company points out, adding that there are over 20 000 businesses involved in selling and providing aftermarket support for the country’s seven million passenger cars and commercial vehicles.
“In addition to cars and trucks, mining and agriculture are two very significant markets for tyres and services,” notes ECI International. “The mining sector accounts for about 18 percent of South Africa’s total gross domestic product (GDP), while agriculture is a R9,6-billion business in the country and generates around 35 percent of GDP across the African continent.”
The show organiser states that, collectively, these figures reflect the high demand and business opportunities that exist for car and van, off-the-road, agricultural, commercial and industrial tyres and services. “This is why a day at Tyrexpo Africa is such a valuable business investment,” the company adds.
