Opportunity for Pakistani Automotive Industry to enter the growing African market

West Africa Automotive Show(WAAS) is an event dedicated to the West African automotive industry. It will showcase the range of vehicle parts and accessories needed to keep cars, trucks, buses, motorbikes and commercial vehicles on Nigeria and West Africa’s roads.

Why Nigeria for Exports?

  • Nigeria has seen double digit growth in demand for car parts over the past five years, as a result of the high number of older cars on the road. 
  • Over 60% of cars on Nigeria’s roads are more than 12 years old, but only 11% are under five years old.
  • Across Nigeria, the spare parts market is seen as a vital business, with individual states supporting the development of specific sites for spare parts traders and automotive/motor mechanic businesses.
  • The sector is also being boosted by new technology, creating a growing online marketplace.
  • With national policy encouraging greater car assembly within Nigeria, as well as increasing the tariffs on imports, all these factors demonstrate that the vehicle parts business in Nigeria is going to keep on growing.
