Following the foundation of the national subsidiary in 2016 and the opening of a concrete admixture plant in 2017, the company is now investing in a new mortar manufacturing facility. In total, Sika has 22 factories on the high-growth African continent. The current business year has already seen investments in new facilities in Egypt and Senegal. 

Construction boom in Cameroon

Sika will use its new mortar products factory, located in the major city of Douala, to expand its product portfolio and supply customers in Cameroon’s construction market with locally manufactured products. The country’s building industry is developing dynamically under the stimulus of investments in infrastructure and housing construction. Major infrastructure projects realised with Sika products include sports stadiums, the Douala Grand Mall and Business Park Project, and facilities for water treatment and the supply of drinking water which are being constructed across the country.

According to forecasts, Cameroon’s construction industry is expected to grow by 8.4% in 2019, with annual growth averaging 7.4% until 2028. This means that the country’s construction market is the market with the highest dynamics in West Africa.
