BMI View : Mozambique's construction sector is forecasted to grow at 4.7% y-o-y in 2016 and average 6.3% over our 10 year forecast. The main drivers of growth will be improvements to the energy sector, investment in infrastructure to export coal, and the potential development of the natural gas sector. The government's efforts to create a more favourable environment for foreign investment will be tempered by depressed global commodity prices.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

  • We continue to forecast 4.7% real growth in Mozambique's construction industry value in 2016, reaching an average of 5.9% over the next five years and 6.3% over our 10-year forecast period.

  • The key drivers over the next five years (2016-2020) will continue to be coal export infrastructure - with production expected to stabilise at 4.7% - and improvements to the national power supply. The burgeoning natural gas sector is also expected to drive growth in the second half of our forecast period (2020-2024).

  • The government has shown a commitment to boosting infrastructure spending and will rely on loans from the private sector and International Monetary Fund to overcome the challenges its growing debt poses.
