The Moroccan construction industry is expected to be supported by government investments in infrastructure and housing projects over the forecast period (2015–2019). The government aims to improve its transport and tourism infrastructure, while addressing the country’s housing shortage and modernizing energy delivery by increasing the volume of renewable schemes.

Accordingly, the Moroccan government introduced the Industrial Acceleration Plan, the Moroccan Project for Solar Energy, the Vision 2020 for the tourism sector and the Rawaj Vision 2020 to bolster trade activities. These plans will create greater demand for construction services over the forecast period. Consequently, in real terms, the industry’s growth is expected to rise from a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.25% during the review period (2010–2014) to 4.37% over the forecast period.
