Tyrexpo Africa 2006
ECI International has announced that it will run an exhibition in Southern Africa. Tyrexpo Africa 2006 will take place from 12 to 14 September at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
South Africa represents the biggest domestic market for vehicles in Africa, accounting for some 80 per cent of the continent’s production and constituting approximately 50 per cent of Africa’s purchasing power. It has the largest economy in Africa and has by far the largest and most dynamic automotive manufacturing, retail and aftermarket business environment on the African continent. South Africa’s population of 45 million and a growing tourism industry still represent the continent’s best growth prospects for increasing vehicle sales and aftermarket revenues.
Currently all the major OEM’s in the world are represented in South Africa with seven plants producing 13 brands. There are over 20,000 enterprises active in selling and providing aftermarket support for South Africa’s seven million passenger and commercial vehicles. The distribution of the national vehicle population is mirrored in the location of
Approximately 5,500 garages and filling stations with their associated workshops, 3,300 specialist repairers, 1,100 new car dealerships, 850 used car dealerships, 450 specialist tyre dealers and retreaders, 650 parts dealers and about 280 farm vehicle and equipment suppliers.
