BMI View:

The Zambian construction industry will slow in 2016, after four consecutive years of doubledigit growth as public spending and investment in the mining sector are cut on the back of lower commodity prices. We expect a more moderate, yet healthy, expansion over our 10-year forecast to 2025, driven by continued investment into transport and energy projects.


Latest Updates And Structural Trends

- Cutbacks in Zambia's crucial mining sector and in public spending will see real growth slow to in 2016, and average 5.7% annually over our 10-year forecast. While still strong, these rates are relatively muted when compared to the double digits rates posted during the mining boom.

- Overspending and falling copper prices have restricted the government's current ability to invest in infrastructure and we expect capital spending to be cut in an effort towards fiscal consolidation.

- In September 2015 Glencore announced it would immediately suspend its Mopani copper mining operation for 18 months. This will hurt copper output as the mine accounted for 15% of Zambia's total copper production in 2014.

- Zambia is currently in 6th place in BMI's Sub-Saharan Africa Infrastructure Risk/Reward Index with a score of 44.7 out of 100.

- Overall, the long-term trends suggest the business environment is improving due to former President Michael Sata's anti-corruption drive and could improve further under the auspices of his successor President Lungu.
