Africa Circular Economy in Building and Construction Report 2021

CW Research’s “Africa Circular Economy in Building and Construction Report 2021” addresses important market dynamics including a 5-year outlook (2021E-2026F) for circular economy in Africa’s building and construction industries.

The circular economy consists of a system of framework solutions that aim to tackle global challenges, including climate change, biodiversity loss, waste, and pollution. The building and construction industries use about 50 percent of the world’s natural resources and 40 percent of unprocessed energy, and on the global level, the industries produce about 35 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions and 30 percent of waste.

The adoption of circular economy measures creates massive opportunities for the building and construction industries to mitigate climate change and prevent the loss of biodiversity. Measures, including the reuse and recycling of construction materials can save natural resources and reduce the emissions and waste generated in the manufacture of new products. The report includes a detailed market overview by waste type, and participants on a regional and global level.

The report provides an in-depth assessment of the African circular economy in the building and construction industry, its size (USD million), consumption (mn tons), key drivers, trends, and constraints. Additionally it includes a competitive landscape by profiling leading players and the impact for the ongoing pandemic on the market.
