Africa is yet to utilize its wealth of animal resources for the benefit of its people. Annual exports of live animals and meat products has take off in significant way to meet the potentially lucrative opportunities from risign incomes and increased livestock products in diets in parts of Asia , the middle east and within Africa itself.
Africa's population is likely to grow by a staggering 1.3 billion people -- the largest growth of any region in the world, including Asia, which currently has about 60 percent of people on the planet. Projections for 2025 is 1.486-billion and the region will more than double in population, from 1.1 billion to 2.4 billion by the year 2050. The urban population growth of Africa is the fastest in the world. Urban inhabitants are expected to reach 744 million by the year 2030 raising the share from 14.4 percent in 1950 to reach 47.7 percent by the year 20130. These increases in numbers show high urban growth rates of above 3% per year, which double urban population in 24 years, that is 2025. This growing urbanization will further amplify the growth in demand for livestock products .
