Kenya: Construction Industry Poised to Register Record Growth

Posted on :Thursday , 16th March 2017

The construction industry in the country is projected to grow steadily and outperform all Sub-Saharan countries for the next 10 years.

The growth has been based on the government's huge spending on infrastructure projects like the standard gauge railway and the Lamu port alongside foreign investment flow.
The market is, for instance, expected to grow by 8.7 per cent in 2017 and remain steady up until 2026 with an annual growth of 6.2 per cent, according to a study by BMI Research - a firm that analyses industry trends.
This will continue to improve the logistics profile of the country as well as support commercial development, which will in turn boost growing businesses and retail activity in various parts of the country.
The report says this steady growth in transport and power infrastructure and commercial construction will provide key investment.
The middle class in Kenya has been cited for the growth owing to its large consumer needs providing a steady market.
Nairobi still remains a hotspot in eastern Africa for investment as the growing real estate sector, particularly the development of hotel and retail businesses as investors capitalise on the growing opportunities.
Direct flights to the US from Nairobi were made possible recently, which could make the market more accessible and attractive.
