Infrastructure Insight: East Africa

Summary

East Africa infrastructure industry is expected to grow steadily over the forecast period (2018-2022). There are huge infrastructure upgrades underway across the region in roads, railways and power generation. The total value of the infrastructure construction market in the three largest markets (Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania) reached US$25.92 billion in 2017, according to GlobalData, which was significantly up from the US$6.73 billion in 2012. Output is projected to almost double to US$98.82 billion by 2022 (in nominal value terms).

The report provides a detailed analysis of the infrastructure sector in East Africa, including the state of current infrastructure, forecast spending across all key sectors and the major projects in the construction pipeline.

The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.

Key Highlights

  • GlobalData is currently tracking 287 large-scale infrastructure projects in both the public and private sectors at all stages from announcement to execution in East Africa. Collectively, these projects are worth US$209.08 billion.
  • In East Africa, the transport (rail and road) and energy sectors account for a large proportion of the project pipeline, making up 37.1% and 45.2% respectively, with project values amounting to US$77.51 billion and US$94.55 billion respectively. Across the Eastern African economies, public private partnerships (PPPs) are funding the majority of projects in the pipeline (51.8%), while 32.8% of tracked projects are publicly funded.
