Construction in Kuwait - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (H1 2021)
Summary The fragility of Kuwait’s construction industry predates the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, with output declining by 7.0% in real terms in 2019, owing to weakness in energy and civil engineering work. Government restrictions on non-essential activity during the lockdowns further exacerbated this fragility. A collapse in oil prices and OPEC-mandated oil output cuts further hampered the industry, as the government curtailed expenditure due to drastically reduced revenues. The situation worsened due to delays in the introduction of VAT and excise taxes, further limiting the government’s ability to spend on major infrastructure projects. Construction activities were also affected by a temporary suspension of work, in line with the government’s efforts to combat the outbreak. According to the Kuwait Business Impact Survey, released by Bensirri PR (BPR) in May 2020, approximately 39% of businesses in the construction sector had shut down operations since the government implemented lockdown measures in April to May 2020. Impacted by these conditions, The analyst estimates that the construction sector declined by an estimated 38.9% in real terms in 2020.
Owing to the significantly lower base, The analyst expects Kuwait’s construction industry to recover strongly in 2021, growing by 28% in real terms. In 2022, the industry is projected to register a growth of 8.2%, and then expand by an annual average rate of 3.9% over the remainder of the forecast period (2023-2025). Government programs to promote the development of affordable housing, transport and renewable energy infrastructure are expected to continue to support the expansion of the industry in the coming years.
Kuwait’s priority over the next few years will be to fast-track economic reforms and diversify the economy away from its dependence on hydrocarbons.These plans are part of the long-term New Kuwait 2035 National Development Plan.
However, progress on implementing the plan has been slow, partly because of political tensions between the government and parliament, and partly because of bureaucracy. However, owing to the economic downturn in 2020 caused by the overdependence on oil and gas revenues, economic reforms and diversification efforts are likely to be accelerated.
