Sagaci Insights: Shopping Malls in Africa

The total number of shopping malls in Africa (excluding South Africa) almost doubled between 2011 and 2018 and is now approaching 600, with urbanisation, population growth, increased interest from international retailers, changing consumer lifestyles and rising household incomes among the factors driving growth.

The sixth edition of Sagaci Research’s Shopping Malls in Africa report provides a detailed analysis of mall development in sub-Saharan Africa and breaks down all 581 open malls into six grades on the basis of such criteria as GLA and tenant mix.

It covers

  • Number of malls by country and region
  • GLA (gross leasable area) per country and region
  • GLA per 1,000 households and GLA per 1,000 upper- and middle-class households
  • Details of all new malls opened in 12 months to June 2018
  • Forecast mall numbers and GLA based on planned projects and malls under construction
  • The socio-economic and political factors impacting mall growth
