Sectors in Brazil


Brazil is the 4th world agricultural producer

Brazil has a suitable environment and conditions to increase its food production, combining 12% of the world’s water supply and one of the largest arable land areas in the world. Here, agricultural production is based on conservation practices and on the rational use of resources.

The country is expected to take on a larger role in global agricultural trade. FAO and OECD rank Brazil as the second largest global supplier of food and agricultural products, on the path to become the foremost supplier in meeting additional global demand.

Logistics and Minning

Brazil relies heavily on logistics and transportation networks to guarantee its competitiveness and to keep growing

The Brazilian government is working to modernize logistics, enhance the competitiveness of the productive sector and increase people's security and comfort. For that, the government is seeking private partners through attractive concession projects, implementing new risk treatment mechanisms, which represent approximately US$10 billion in investments.

In 2023, there are 51 planned projects related to airports, highways, ports, water infrastructure, parks and forests, urban mobility, sanitation and public lighting.

Social and Environmental Sustainability

Invest in Brazil

Sustainability has become a critical theme in Brazil, reflecting the country's vast natural resources and its challenges in preserving them. Brazil's commitment to sustainability is evident in its efforts to combat deforestation in the Amazon rainforest and promote renewable energy sources like hydropower.

Foreign direct investment (FDI) trends in sustainability are expected to be on the rise in Brazil in the coming years. Investors are increasingly interested in opportunities related to clean energy, reforestation projects, and sustainable agriculture, recognizing both the financial potential and the global imperative to address climate change. As the world focuses more on sustainability, Brazil is poised to attract FDI that contributes to both economic growth and environmental preservation.

Venture Capital & Private Equity

Unlocking opportunities, fueling growth

The segment dynamism is related to the growing amount of capital committed for investments in the country. The volume has significantly increased over the years, giving Brazil the leader position in the region. Considering regional venture capital performance in Latin America by managers, angels and corporates, Brazil has represented 50% of the deals made in the region in the past decade.

These large-scale investments underscore Brazil's growing reputation as a hotspot for innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as its attractiveness to international investors seeking high-growth opportunities in various sectors, from technology to healthcare, fueling the country's economic development and job creation.
