Project Insight: Healthcare Construction Projects, Middle East And Africa

Project Insight: Healthcare Construction Projects, Middle East And Africa

Summary

Many countries in the Middle East and Africa region are still far from being able to offer universal health coverage, as measured by a World Health Organization index of access to 16 necessary services. An aging population in the Middle East could push up demand across the region’s healthcare industry, but a focus on technology-focused healthcare delivery models, which allow for easier access to medical advice and care, has begun easing the constraints of the traditional delivery model and driving investment in digital healthcare.

GlobalData is currently tracking healthcare construction projects in the Middle East and Africa with a total value of US$51.61 billion, which includes projects from the announced to execution stages. According to GlobalData, a total of 58 hospital projects are already underway in the Gulf region, worth about US$37.30 billion and are expected to add around 40,500 hospital beds to existing capacity. Saudi Arabia leads with the highest value project pipeline, with a value of US$16.6 billion, equivalent to 44.5% of the GCC total and 32.2% of the regional total.

The overall project pipeline is led by the execution stage, with a total value of US$29.44 billion, followed by projects in planning with US$12.41 billion. Projects in the pre-execution stage amount to US$9.2 billion, while those at the pre-planning stage total US$577 million. Assuming all projects proceed as planned, spending will reach US$8.4 billion in 2018 and US$9.2 billion in 2019.
