The “Construction in Qatar – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (Q3 2021)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
Qatar’s construction industry estimated growth has been revised down for 2021, with the industry now forecast to record a marginal growth of 1% in 2021, following a contraction of 4.1% in 2020. The downward revision from the earlier forecast of 2.8% in 2021 has been due to the continued weakness in the industry in the first half of the year, owing to new wave of infections and subsequent lockdown restrictions which weighed on the industry’s output. Reflecting the pandemic’s impact on construction activities, the industry’s value add fell by 3.2% year on year (YoY) in Q1 2021, preceded by a Y-o-Y decline of 4.7% in Q4 2020, according to the Planning and Statistics Authority (PSA).
The industry is expected to recover in the second half of 2021, supported by an improvement in the energy sector, a rebound in the global economy and renewed investments owing to the ending of the economic blockade of Qatar from January 2021. The blockade had been in place since June 2017, when four Arab countries – Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain, and Egypt – cut diplomatic and trade ties with Qatar, and imposed a sea, land and air blockade on the country, claiming it was too close to Iran, and supported terrorism. However, growth is likely to be constrained by the announced reduction in capital expenditure as part of the 2021 Budget. As part of this budget, overall spending in 2021 has been budgeted at a reduction of 7.5% of the spending in the previous year.
Construction output is forecast to record an annual average growth of 4.2% between 2022 and 2025, supported by investments under the Qatar National Vision 2030, under which QAR60 billion (US$16.4 billion) will be invested in infrastructure and real estate projects by 2025. In addition, the country’s plan to increase the Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) production capacity will support investments in oil and gas projects. The ratification of a new law regulating public-private partnership (PPP) will attract private sector investment in the development of infrastructure, schools and healthcare projects, supporting the industry’s growth over the forecast period (2021-2025).
