BMI View: The positive demographic outlook for Cameroon, combined with relative economic sta b ility, will continue to drive growth in the country's food and drink sector. A burgeoning middle class and increasing adoption of mass grocery retail will support the attractive investment outlook for the sector across our forecast period to 2020.

Key Trends & Industry Developments

  • Between 2017 and 2020 food sales will rise 5.0% per annum in local currency terms, following an estimated growth rate of 4.9% in 2016. Broad-based robust real GDP growth in the years ahead will continue to support food sales growth, with private consumption set to remain a key growth driver in Cameroon.

  • Cameroon's burgeoning middle class, as well as rising private consumption levels, will support increasing demand for drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, across our forecast period. Alcoholic drinks consumption will rise 10.8% on an annualised basis in 2017 and will sustain these levels of growth across our forecast period to 2020.

  • Improving supply chains will continue to benefit retailers as the government continues to invest in developing the country's transportation network and other infrastructure.

  • Mass grocery retailers will benefit over the long term due to Cameroon's positive demographic profile, most notably the large youth population, which guarantees a future consumer base.
