Infrastructure Insight: Nigeria

Synopsis

The report provides a detailed look into the infrastructure sector in Nigeria, including analysis of the state of the current infrastructure, the regulatory and financing landscapes 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.

Summary

Infrastructure expenditure in Nigeria is forecast to increase at a strong pace over the forecast period (2017–2021).

According to Timetric’s Infrastructure Intelligence Center (IIC), the infrastructure construction market’s value increased from NGN2.5 trillion (US$8.2 billion) in 2011 to NGN4.9 trillion (US$16 billion) in 2016, and is projected to reach NGN6.5 trillion by 2021 (in nominal value terms).

This is based on the assumption that a number of major infrastructure projects will proceed as planned, including the East–West Road Dualization, the Coastal Railway Line, the 3050MW Mambilla Hydroelectric Power Plant and the Lekki Deepwater Port.

Key Highlights

Timetric is currently tracking 151 large-scale infrastructure construction projects in Nigeria, at all stages of development from announcement to execution. These projects have a total investment value of US$285.3 billion.

Rail projects account for the largest share of infrastructure projects in the pipeline, with a total value of US$133.6 billion. This is followed by electricity and power projects with a pipeline of US$121.6 billion. The pipeline value for road infrastructure projects amounts to US$16.2 billion, and for airports and other infrastructure construction projects it stands at US$13.5 billion. For water and sewerage infrastructure construction projects, the total work pipeline stands at U$457 million.

In the 2015-2016 World Economics’ Global Competitiveness Report, Nigeria ranked 133rd of 140 countries surveyed for the overall quality of infrastructure; well behind South Africa (59th), Algeria (101st) and Egypt (114th).

President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged to concentrate on the rapid development of the country’s infrastructure, especially on critical ongoing infrastructure projects in the roads, railways, power and ICT sectors.
