BMI View: We forecast Gabon's construction industry to recover from the recession it entered in 2014 to record moderate growth in 2016 and throughout our 10-year forecast period. Support for projects will stem from international financial institutions and funding flows from China, though we highlight that a wide fiscal deficit and lack of substantial foreign direct investment will hinder the government's plan to tackle its infrastructure deficit and diversify its economy away from oil exports.

Forecast & Industry Developments
- We have adjusted our outlook for Gabon's construction industry following new historic data showing a contraction of 4.5% in real terms in 2014. We now estimate the industry contracted by 1% in 2015 as oil
headwinds continue to weigh on government revenues. BMI forecasts growth to return to positive territory in 2016, recording 4.5% real growth and expect it to continue to expand over our 10-year forecast period.
- Between 2016 and 2020 we project annual average growth of 4.7% in real terms as projects in the transport and power sectors enter construction, supported by loan agreements from international financial institutions and China.
- We have maintained our outlook for the second half of our forecast period between 2021 and 2025, projecting annual average growth of 6% in real terms over this period as the improved commodities outlook eases fiscal pressure and enables the government to funnel expenditure into infrastructure development.
- The government is actively courting Chinese involvement in its infrastructure sector and has eased regulations for South African businesses travelling to Gabon in order to encourage them to invest in the country.
