Construction in Bahrain – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Summary

The Bahraini construction industry regained growth momentum in 2018, with output value expanding by 5.7% in real terms – up from 1.7% in 2017. Growth during the review period (2014-2018) averaged 5.1% a year, and was supported by public and private sector investment in infrastructure and residential construction projects, leading to an increase in demand for the Bahraini construction industry.

The industry’s output value is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2019-2023), with investments in transport infrastructure, energy, commercial and industrial projects, as well as improvement in consumer and investor confidence.

In 2018, the government awarded 119 tenders worth BHD278.0 million (US$732.0 million) for roads, sewage and building construction projects. The government’s aim to develop the country’s rail infrastructure will drive the industry’s growth.
