The Southern African market’s potential


SADC (source: Wikipedia)

The Southern African region is a developing market with a significant potential for growth. The region’s economic growth has been driven by the mining industry, agriculture, and tourism. South Africa is the largest economy in the region, contributing more than 60% to the region’s GDP. However, the other countries in the region have also shown steady growth in their economies, and this has led to an increase in the demand for thermal till rolls. In 2020, the Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries’ combined GDP was estimated to be over $615 billion, making it an attractive market for businesses.

Why thermal till rolls have a big market in Southern Africa?

Thermal till rolls have become increasingly popular in Southern Africa due to their affordability, durability, and convenience. The retail industry in the region is growing, with more and more supermarkets, grocery stores, and small businesses being established every year. These businesses require thermal till rolls to print receipts and keep track of their sales. Furthermore, thermal till rolls are more environmentally friendly than traditional till rolls, which are made from wood pulp. This aspect appeals to consumers who are becoming more conscious of the environment.
