Algeria Infrastructure Report

BMI View: The Algerian construction sector has performed well in 2013 and we see this trend to continue into 2014. After a change of the historical construction data by the Bank of Algeria, from -5.9% year - on - year [y-o-y] to 1.51% y-o-y in 2011, we have revised our outlook of the Algerian construction value to be in line with these modifications. Strong revenues from oil and gas resources and energy exports have allowed the Algerian government to assign US$286bn for investment in infrastructure in five years. Reasonable growth rates and rising oil prices, as well as a period of political stability, in relation to neighbouring countries, are helping to maintain Algeria's inflows of foreign investment. Over the 10-year forecast period we expect average y-o-y growth will be 5.9%, from 2014 to 2023, with industry value to stand at US$ 57.04bn by the end of this period.

The key trends and developments in Algeria's Infrastructure sector are:

  • At the Algeria Infrastructure Summit held in September 2012, plans for the enhancement of the country's infrastructure sector were announced. A total of US$286bn will be invested in an infrastructure development program. In particular, US$156bn government investments are planned for new projects and US$110bn will be allocated for the modernisation/development of current rail and road projects. In addition an approximate US$20bn has been allocated to developing the country's water resources. The government plans to build 32 new water dams and 25 large water transfer systems with a total value of US$10bn; 40 wastewater treatment plants with a value of US$1bn; Irrigation and drainage projects amounting to US$700mn and water distribution systems for 37 cities amounting to US$1bn. A further US$114.4bn will be dedicated to the development of education, healthcare and housing infrastructure.
