Synopsis
In real terms, the South African construction industry’s forecast-period (2017–2021) outlook is moderate compared to its review-period (2012–2016) performance. This is a result of economic slowdown, poor investor sentiment, high unemployment and a weak currency, which will weigh on construction spending.

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.57% over the forecast period, down from 2.67% during the review period.

Over the forecast period, industry growth is expected to be supported by investment in transport and logistics infrastructure, and energy construction projects, as well as the expansion of low-cost residential buildings.

Government efforts to balance supply and demand for social housing will drive demand for the construction of new residential units. Urbanization will continue to generate demand for residential and infrastructure development.
