Economic Features

Revenue Stream Sales and maintenance of agricultural machinery
CAPEX Consists of the cost of machinery with an average range of 1.1M EGP

Note: This CAPEX represents the indicative investment size, however, this investment opportunity can grow in implementation to a larger sized investments.
Investment Size Small (between 500k-5M EGP)


Key Challenge Scale up production and produce high-quality equipment
Advantages Product is in high demand and would replace imported alternatives as well as fill the gap of access to agricultural machinery within recycling businesses
Potential Pathways to Growth Production, sales and/or distribution of a diverse portfolio of various types of machinery – local manufacturing of certain components to sell nationally/export – selling full solution rather than only the machinery (e.g., automation, operations and maintenance, spare parts etc.)

General Impact

Environmental Reduces CO2 emissions by enhancing recycling businesses
Social Cost-competitive products for agriculture and creates job opportunities
