Cote d'Ivoire Infrastructure Report Q3 2016 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Jul 08 2016

Increased government expenditure towards infrastructure development as well as significant foreign direct investment inflows will drive construction industry expansion over our forecast period . The highest growth will be recorded between 2016 and 2018, as major t ransport and energy infrastructure developments are undertaken to boost Cote d'Ivoire's regional profile in the Sub-Saharan Africa regional context.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

We continue to forecast 9.2% real growth in 2016 for the construction industry as the government directs significant capital expenditure towards infrastructure development and private investment continues to flow into the country.

Over our full 10-year forecast period we project the industry will expand by 6.4% in real terms. Nominal industry value will increase from an estimated USD800mn in 2015 to USD2bn in 2025.

Full Report Details at

We expect the construction industry's growth trajectory will be resilient in the wake of the recent terrorist attack, which took place in March 2016 in the coastal town of Grand Bassam, east of the capital.

With substantial expenditure into infrastructure compounding its fiscal deficit, the government plans to raise around USD2bn externally to support its expansionary budget.

Activity in the transport and energy sectors will be the key drivers of construction industry growth over the first half of our forecast period.

Risk/Reward Index

Cote d'Ivoire is scores 38.8 in our Infrastructure RRI for Sub-Saharan Africa, below the regional average of 39.1.

The country's stable economic and political environment continues to draw in foreign direct investment inflows.

The underdeveloped labour and financial market, as well as the threat of further terror attacks, are chief deterrents to entering the market.
