How #KonstructApp is stimulating Africa’s construction value-chain!

Africa’s construction market was valued at USD 5.4 billion in 2020 and is projected to register a CAGR of 7.4% during a six-year forecast period (2021 – 2026) according to ​​Mordor Intelligence.

However, this growth is expected to remain impacted over a few years due to the economic downturn caused by the 2020 lockdown in response to the COVID-19 pandemic which negatively impacted the market across its ecosystem namely Building, Infrastructure and Industrial sectors.

The industry in Africa, a huge construction site with an array of investment opportunities in energy infrastructure and housing fuelled by rapid urbanization, population growth, cheap labour and a fast-growing consumer market is generally believed to bounce back. However, while investment in the African construction industry is expected to be largely driven by government spending in the infrastructure sector, this development still leaves industry stakeholders and investors with questions on how to best access the marketplace in the face of existing and emerging challenges plaguing the industry.
