South Africa Construction Market Report


Report Summary

The South Africa Construction Market Report is ConstructAfrica's independent construction market assessment, covering the infrastructure and construction industry sectors of South Africa.

Report Description

South Africa is the third largest economy in Africa. It is also the continent's most technologically advanced, industrialized, and diversified economy.

The country’s construction industry is projected to grow 9.1% in real terms in 2022, following a turnaround in 2021 from the 16.5% COVID-induced contraction in 2020.

“Infrastructure investment is a central pillar of the South African government’s post‐COVID‐19 economic recovery plans," according to the report. The 2022 budget allocates R812.5 billion over the next three years to public‐sector infrastructure projects. The government is also implementing a National Infrastructure Plan targeting infrastructure spend estimated at R2.15 trillion (US$140 billion) up to 2040.

The government’s massive spending on infrastructure is expected to drive a construction boom in the country.
