Construction in Morocco - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022


GlobalData's "Construction in Morocco - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022", report provides detailed market analysis, information and insights into the Moroccan construction industry.

The Moroccan construction industry registered positive growth during the review period (2013-2017) as a whole, but construction activity slowed in 2017, amid austerity measures implemented by the government to reduce the fiscal deficit. The government reduced the fiscal deficit from 4.1% of GDP in 2016 to 3.6% in 2017, and aims to reduce it to 3.0% by 2021. Nevertheless, review-period growth was supported by the governments new Public Private Partnership (PPP) policy, which attracted foreign direct investment in energy and transport infrastructure projects.

The industrys value is expected to pick up over the forecast period (2018-2022), with investments in public infrastructure, energy, commercial and industrial projects, and improvements in consumer and investor confidence. Programs such as the Tourism Vision 2020, Rawaj Vision 2020 and Moroccan Rural Electrification Program, through which the government aims to develop the countrys commercial and energy infrastructure, will support the industrys growth over the forecast period.

The industrys output value in real terms increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.28% during the review period (2013-2017), and is expected to post a CAGR of 3.33% over the forecast period.

Key Highlights

- GlobalData expects the residential construction market to retain its leading position over the forecast period, with a share of 31.2% of the industrys total value in 2022.

Under the Digital Program 2020, the government plans to invest MAD7.4 billion (US$750.0 million) until 2020 to develop the countrys broadband infrastructure.
- In order to attract foreign manufacturing companies, the government is focusing on the construction of industrial parks in the country with the help of foreign investors.
