The event generates access to about 14.3 million business prospects during three-days, The rapid industrialization and modernization currently sweeping through many African countries has resulted in an increased demand for capital goods such as machinery, lubricants, spare parts, ball bearings and other automotive mechanical goods and accessories. The market for automobile spare parts, in particular, has been an attractive sector for global exporters, as Africa has witnessed a remarkable increase in imports by 30%. Last year’s event witnessed international pavilion participation from India, Turkey, China, Italy, Malaysia and Germany. Over the years, Autoexpo has grown to cater to the demands of not just the Kenyan market, but of the whole region of East Africa.
Kenya is certainly one of the biggest markets in Africa, but Autoexpo also lays strong emphasis on attracting traders and importers from neighboring countries. Kenya is a model location for a specialized trade fair such as Autoexpo Africa which presents a comprehensive spectrum of products and solutions in the automotive industry. This will be a crucial and positive approach for the domestic producers looking to upgrade their technology, pushing them to remain competitive in the industry, as well as provide a one-stop platform for international companies looking to invest and enlarge their footprint in Kenya and the region.
