In a significant milestone for the African tech industry, Infinix has taken a pioneering step by inaugurating Africa’s inaugural smartwatch and AirPod manufacturing facility. Located within the Suez Canal Economic Zone in Egypt, this state-of-the-art factory represents a leap forward for both Infinix and the continent’s burgeoning tech sector.
The primary objective of this manufacturing facility is to produce an impressive one million smartwatches and AirPods annually, catering to the growing demand for these wearable devices in the African market. With the establishment of this factory, Infinix aims to solidify its presence as a prominent player in the global technology landscape.
Egypt, with its strategic location and ambitious economic goals, is on a trajectory to become a regional tech hub. The nation’s vision is underscored by its aim to host a staggering 10,000 factories within the Suez Canal Economic Zone by 2030. Currently, the zone is already home to approximately 2,000 factories, indicating substantial progress towards realizing this ambitious target.
Infinix’s decision to set up shop in Egypt is a testament to the country’s growing appeal as an investment destination in the tech sector. The Suez Canal Economic Zone, strategically located at the crossroads of Europe, Africa, and Asia, offers a conducive environment for businesses looking to tap into the vast potential of the African market.
This development not only strengthens Infinix’s position in the tech industry but also contributes to job creation and technological advancement in the region. As Infinix’s smartwatch and AirPod manufacturing facility begins operations, it signifies a significant step forward for the African tech ecosystem, highlighting the continent’s potential to become a global tech leader in the years to come.
