This study presents some of the predictions that Frost & Sullivan believes will shape, grow, and have high relevance within the African chemicals industry for 2017 to 2019, specifically within sub-Saharan Africa. Key African trends are discussed, including digitisation and convergence, smart agriculture, LNG beneficiation, Internet of Things (IoT), changing business models, supply chain optimisation, additive manufacturing, and lightweight materials. While these trends are discussed separately, due to their complementary nature, many trends converge.
