Slide of the month (SOTM) May. Construction projects in Africa


Africa’s booming population creates vast opportunities, including significant demand for robust infrastructure. Some of the key drivers of this growth are economic growth, urbanization, industrialization, and the growth of the middle class. African governments have prioritized the improvement and diversification of infrastructure and construction projects.

We researched on the regional construction industry in Africa for one of our clients in the sector.

The East African region accounts for 40.3% of projects across the continent and 29.5% of the value. West Africa accounts for 16.6% of all projects in Africa. South Africa increased its infrastructure project activities in 2020 and accounted for 26.5% of projects across Africa. North Africa accounts for 19.2% of projects in Africa and 29.1% in terms of US dollar value. Central Africa represents 3.5% of all projects in Africa.

We consolidated all the findings into a comprehensive report which also contained tactical recommendations for the client.
