The 2016 edition of our Africa Construction Trends Report includes 286 construction projects in Africa that had broken ground by 1 June 2016 and are valued at US$50m or above.
Collectively, these projects are worth US$324bn. The number of projects qualifying for inclusion fell by 5% year-on-year, while the value of included projects decreased by 14%, due in large part to the headwinds that countries are experiencing on account of a weak global macroeconomic environment and low commodity prices across the board.
As a region, West Africa had the most number of projects with 92 projects and also the most in terms of value at US$120bn. However, South Africa was the single country with the largest number of projects (41) followed by Nigeria (38).
