Construction & Materials

Sub-Saharan Africa will have the fastest growing construction industry among all major regions in the world over the next five years growing on average by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6 per cent a year, from 2018 to 2022, according to GlobalData.

Regionally, Africa will become a major player in global construction over the next five years. There will be a steady acceleration in construction activity in Nigeria over the forecast period to 2022, supported by government efforts to revitalise the economy, by focusing on developing the country’s infrastructure. However, Ethiopia will be Africa’s star performer, where its construction industry will continue to grow in line with the country’s economic expansion.
