Mozambique Construction Market 2020: Analysis of the Impact of Regulatory Changes and the Macroeconomic and Political Outlook -

·4-min read

The "Mozambique Construction Market Report" report has been added to's offering.

With offshore gas discoveries in Mozambique's Rovuma Basin estimated at 100 trillion cubic feet, and with massive infrastructure projects worth up to US$30 billion having broken ground or currently under planning, the country has been described by the African Development Bank as one of the most dynamic economies on the African continent. Prior to the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic, Mozambique's GDP was expected to rise by 5.5% in 2020.

Infrastructure spend has rallied on the back of huge investments allocated to infrastructure projects designed to support the country's rapidly developing oil and gas, and mining sectors. It is estimated that projects totalling almost US$30 billion are currently in the pipeline. There are also massive ancillary and downstream opportunities attached to the gas development projects and it is estimated that actual infrastructure spend will reach around US$6 billion per annum by 2025 as new mega-projects continue to break ground.

The complexity of infrastructure required to support the oil & gas and mining sector developments and the stringent demands of multinationals for high standard construction in the country has locked out many local firms that lack the capacity, thus opening up the market to foreign firms predominantly from Portugal and South Africa.

This report includes 70 pages of an overview of the state of the construction industry in Mozambique - analysing the impact of regulatory changes, the macroeconomic outlook, and the political outlook.

The report also contains competitive intelligence on opportunities in various sectors and details and contact information for key players in Mozambique's construction industry.
