BMI View : The Ivorian construction industry will remain on a positive growth trajectory between 2017 and 2025 as the government works to improve its transport logistics network and inadequate power supply. Private funding flows will also support the growth of the sector as the country ' s entrenches its status as an attractive investment destination in West Africa.

Forecast & Industry Developments

  • We continue to forecast robust real growth 7.6% in 2017 as the government continues to direct significant funding towards transport and power infrastructure projects, given their role in supporting the country's overall economic trajectory.

  • Support for the industry will also stem from the private sector and international debt market, particularly as Cote d'Ivoire remains an attractive investment destination relative to its West African peers, with a currency peg to the Western franc having kept economic growth stable and the current administration's commitment to pro-business reforms. The market's reputation has been further boosted to the June 2016 decision by the US to remove the country from its sanctions list.Over our 10-year forecast period up to 2025 we are forecasting annual average growth of 6.0% in real terms. Nominal industry value is projected to reach USD1.6bn, keeping the construction market as one of the smallest in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

  • The market posts its strongest performance in the Industry Risks pillar, owing to improvements in the transparency of the tendering process and efforts towards harnessing the public-private partnership model. Having said this, the competitive landscape is currently dominated by French companies pulling on cultural ties and Chinese firms.
