  • The South African construction industry's growth prospects by market, project type and type of construction activity
  • Analysis of equipment, material and service costs across each project type in South Africa
  • Critical insight into the impact of industry trends and issues, and the risks and opportunities they present to participants in the South African construction industry

Summary

The South African construction industry registered a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.65% during the review period (2009-2013). This growth was supported by increased government spending in the country's residential, infrastructural and commercial construction projects. The residential and infrastructure construction markets drove growth, as the preparation for both the World Cup and 2009 Confederations Cup supported improvements and acceleration in construction activities. Moreover, the government has also adopted the National Infrastructure Plan (NIP) and announced National Budget estimates in order to develop the country's infrastructure. Therefore, a large number of announced projects will provide hope for the construction industry, as corruption, mismanagement and price fixing within the industry all threaten to undermine the proper implementation of these developments. Timetric expects the South African construction industry to record a CAGR of 8.93% over the forecast period (2014-2018).
