With thanks to “Classe Export” for the hint, a 2011 market brief by the African Development Bank.

The study provides three sub-categories of the middle class.

  1. The first sub-category is that of the “floating class” with per capita consumption levels of between $2-$4 per day (…)

  2. The second sub-category is that of the “lower-middle” class with per capitaconsumption levels of $4-$10 per day (…)

  3. The third sub-category is the “upper-middle class” with per capita consumptionlevels of $10-$20 per day.

Classe Export’s latest issue (Sept.-Oct. 2017) explains why this segmentation should be taken into account when designing your marketing strategy for Africa.

Specifically for non-ferrous metals, demand for aluminium could increase by 100 million tons and demand for copper by 20 million tons.
