Egypt Infrastructure Report

BMI View: A strong fixed investment drive supported by Egypt's government will boost infrastructure industry growth in the next decade. A strengthening project pipeline presented at the Egyptian Economic Development Conference supports our increasingly positive view of this construction market.

Foreign direct investment (FDI) as well as development assistance are critical to Egypt's infrastructure development. As political stability and policy clarity, as well as pent-up demand, entice investors back into the country, our Country Risk team expects a significant upswing in FDI inflows into Egypt over the coming quarters.

Key Trends And Developments

  • A total of 50 construction projects requiring more than USD70bn capital expenditure (capex) were presented at the Egyptian Economic Development Conference. Projects are on offer across all sectors and they are backed by strong government support.

  • Economic growth in Egypt will pick up over the coming quarters on the back of relative political stability. Fixed investment will be the primary driver of growth as a result of greater clarity on the economic policy front. Our Country Risk team forecasts 3.0% GDP real growth in FY2014/15 and 3.8% in FY2015/16.

  • Cement production, which we use a proxy for construction activity, continues in an uptrend. We anticipate cement production and consumption to rise on the back of the expansion of the Suez Canal.

  • After a speedy approval and tendering process, two contracts for the USD8.5bn Suez Canal expansion have already been awarded. Although we anticipate delays in its completion, the project has prompted an upward revision of our construction industry real growth forecasts for Egypt in 2015 and 2016.

  • Despite environmental risk surrounding coal-based power generation and concerns of inviting new import dependency, we believe coal will gain a small but significant foothold in Egypt's energy mix in the future. There have also been talks of a potential nuclear power plant...
