Construction in South Africa - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2024
Summary In line with expectations of a sharp decline in construction output in South Africa (SA) in Q2 2020 amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and a strict six-week lockdown, SA’s construction industry is forecast to contract by 14.3% in 2020. The industry is expected to continue to be hit hard by the impact of high national debt, labor shortages and low infrastructure spending amid a depressed economy. The impact of the COVID-19 outbreak will weigh on the economy’s resilience.
Construction output is expected to register an average growth of 1% between 2021 and 2024, as fiscal sustainability remains the government’s priority in the short term.Public and private sector investments on transport infrastructure and electricity projects will drive the industry’s growth over the medium to long term.
In mid-October 2020, the government rolled out an ambitious US$60 billion Economic Reconstruction and Recovery Plan to reindustrialise the economy by focusing on small businesses and strengthening medium and large ones and accelerate economic reforms to unlock investments.The plan has four priority interventions: infrastructure investments; expansion of the energy generation capacity; job creation to support livelihoods; and industrial growth.
The infrastructure build programme will focus on social infrastructure such as schools, water, sanitation, and housing. It will also focus on critical network infrastructure such as ports, roads, and rail, which are key to economic growth.
