Algeria Infrastructure Report

BMI View: Algeria's construction sector saw relatively healthy growth in 2014, and with an uptick in GDP growth forecast in 2015 we expect this trend to continue moving forward. The government is launching an extensive new five-year development programme, including wide-ranging investments across a number of public infrastructure projects, with USD262bn due to be allocated. Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal has also reiterated a commitment to encouraging more foreign investment, indicating a range of opportunities for international firms. Despite a contraction in the oil and gas sector, Algeria's large reserves mean we expect to see public spending continue to rise, supporting our positive growth forecasts for the country's construction sector.

The key trends and developments in Algeria's infrastructure sector are:  

  • Construction industry value is expected to grow by, on average, just under 5% a year between 2015 and 2024, increasing from USD22.8bn to USD47.4bn by the end of the current forecast period.

  • Government spending is set to increase, with total capital investment forecast to increase from 35.8% of GDP in 2015 to just under 40% of GDP by 2024.

  • The government continues to address the housing shortage, committing to the construction of 1mn new housing units by 2019.

  • Algeria continues to pursue development of nuclear energy, signing an agreement with Russia which covers design, construction and the operation of nuclear power plants as well as the potential exploration and operation of uranium deposits.

  • Construction has commenced on a 1,000km long east to west highway which will connect Batna and Khenchela - work will be carried out by public and private Algerian firms run by Groupe Cosider.
