A comprehensive overview of the fast-emerging Morocco projects market

Morocco is an increasingly important projects market. As the GCC projects market runs the risk of saturation, Morocco, blessed with well-educated population, growing economy and stable political environment is increasingly being viewed as a viable alternative market for contractors, consultants and suppliers alike.

Without meaningful oil and gas reserves, Morocco has diversified its economy to focus on other key sectors. In terms of high-speed rail, renewable energy and fertiliser it is a regional leader while other sectors such as mining and tourism are attracting growing amounts of investment and interest.

The latest market intelligence report from MEED Insight, Morocco Projects Market 2014 report, outlines the major project opportunities in the kingdom sector by sector. The first on Morocco, this report looks at the key clients and contractors, the historic, current and future sizes of each sector, the major challenges, key government and private strategy on each sector, and also provides a political and economic overview.

Today there are more than $20bn worth of major projects under execution in the kingdom with another $50bn-plus in the planning or tendering stage. Unlike in the GCC, much of the projects drive is being made by the private sector rather than the public sector.

As projects become increasingly large and ambitious, the need for foreign expertise is growing. Contractors across the region and beyond are attracted to Morocco by the increasing and size and diversity of the projects on offer.

Along with providing individual project details, the research report offers you individual sector strategies, current and future project work and challenges and opportunities facing project development in the kingdom.
