South Africa Project Outlook

The South African construction industry is expected to grow in 2021 after a decline in 2020. The country’s output was affected by the pandemic and the country had to impose a strict lockdown. To help the economy recover from the crisis, the government has announced a 10-year infrastructure investment plan with investments planned in the housing, energy, agriculture, transport, and water sectors.

Sectors we cover
Africa has 15 per cent of the world's population but consumes only 3 per cent of its energy while it produces 12 per cent of the world's energy. There are more than $340 billion of active oil and gas projects in Africa.
The healthcare sector in Africa is straining under the mense pressure brought on by COVID-19. Africa has to invest billions in developing its healthcare infrastructure, educate and train thousands of specialists to serve its rapidly growing population.
Since Africa has a booming population and low access to power rates, providing power to all Africans is critical. Hydropower still provides the lowest Levelized cost of energy (LCOE). Therefore, the African continent is investing more than $83 billion in Hydropower projects.
