Construction in Qatar – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Summary

In real terms, the Qatari construction industry registered a review-period (2014-2018) compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.91%, supported by the government and private sector investment in transport infrastructure, energy and utilities, residential and healthcare buildings under the Qatar National Development Strategy 2011-2016. The industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13.17% over the forecast period (2019-2023) in real terms. Forecast-period growth will be supported by public and private sector investments in infrastructure construction projects and expansion in residential and commercial buildings projects. Furthermore, construction work related to the upcoming 2022 Fifa World Cup and Vision 2030 is expected to provide growth momentum to the industry over the forecast period.

In order to diversify the country’s economy, and create a stable and sustainable business environment, the government is focusing on the development of non-oil sectors, which in turn drive funding towards construction projects. Furthermore, government efforts to enhance regional connectivity by focusing on the development of the country’s transport infrastructure will support the industry’s growth. Additionally, the government’s plan to increase Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production capacity will support investments in energy infrastructure projects over the forecast period.

In September 2018, in order to transform the country as hub for trade and export, the government launched a new Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy. Under this, the government allowed 100.0% FDI in sectors such as agriculture, banking, distribution, education, health, insurance, manufacturing, technology, energy, tourism and mining.
