Rapid urbanisation, economic growth and regional integration are encouraging a wave of complex infrastructure projects which are rejuvenating the African construction industry

According to a recent report on by Mordor Intelligence, the African construction market was valued at around US$5.4bn in 2020 and is expected to register a CAGR of 7.4% between 2021 and 2026. 

While Covid-19 did hamper development Africa’s construction market is rebounding better than most industries owed, in part, to an abundance of infrastructure projects being undertaken across the continent. 

A construction report in the latest issue of African Review charts the construction industries growth, examines some of the most impressive construction projects which are taking shape and records a discussion with Tolga Ural, regional director at Liugong Dressta Machinery, Africa, Middle East, Asia Pacific & Australia as he describes his company’s experience on the continent over the last year.
