Irving, TX, January 19, 2014 --(PR.com)-- The Nigerian economy is likely to be driven by growth in the telecommunications, building and construction, and hotel & restaurants industries during the forecast period. Recovery of the global economy, particularly European countries would positively impact the Nigerian economy. Oil and gas is one of the major sectors of the country, contributing significantly to total export.Increase in international oil prices would boost the oil and gas sector as well as the economy. The Nigerian economy is likely to grow to $384 billion at the current price by 2018 at a CAGR of 6.8% during 2013-2018.
Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has conducted a detailed analysis on this economy and presents its findings in “PESTLE Analysis of Nigeria 2013.”The study indicates the social challenges that Nigeria is facing in terms of high unemployment rate, high corruption rate, and high homicide rate (crime rate). The country does not witness much economic risk due to its moderate GDP growth rate, low government debt, and fiscal surplus. The report also highlights the major drivers of the economy.
The telecommunication industry is one of the emerging industries that grew at a CAGR of 34% over the period of 2007-2012, and the contribution surged from 0.02% to 0.8% to GDP over the same period.
