In real terms, Morocco's construction industry is set to perform relatively well over the forecast-period (2016-2020), compared to the review period (2011-2015). The industry's growth over the forecast period will be driven by investment in infrastructure, energy and residential construction projects.

The industry's output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.07% over the forecast period, up from 1.26% during the review period.

Government efforts to improve transport infrastructure will support industry growth over the forecast period. Plans to increase energy production in the country are also expected to support funding in energy infrastructure projects. In the first quarter of 2016, a consortium consisting of the Moroccan energy company Nareva, Germany's Siemens Wind Power and Italy's Enel Green Power announced plans to develop five wind power projects in the country, with 850MW in combined generation capacity. Due to urbanization and population growth, demand for construction services is set to rise. Investment in social housing projects will also support industry growth.

The government is seeking help from private investors to improve the country's infrastructure. The government plans to launch the country's first construction project as a public-private partnership (PPP) in 2016.

Key Highlights

  • Despite economic growth and constitutional reforms, real estate transactions in the country decreased in 2015. According to Bank Al-Maghrib, real estate transactions in the country registered a decline of 2.7% in 2015, after an expansion of 15.9% in 2014. Consequently, the total number of real estate transactions declined from 129,732 in 2014 to 126,217 in 2015.
  • In January 2016, the government launched various transport infrastructure projects in Casablanca, the country's biggest city and economic capital, under the 2015-2020 Casablanca Strategic Development Plan. The projects outlined by the government under this strategy include the expansion of the first line and construction of the second line of Casablanca tramway, a tunnel on the national road RN1 and the development of the city road network. Through the plan, the government aims to support economic and urban development, improve living standards and ensure social and economic inclusion.
  • The Moroccan construction industry's growth will be driven by a government plan to increase the share of renewable energy in terms of total energy consumption, encouraging investment in renewable energy infrastructure. To reduce the country's reliance on imported energy and the heavy burden of fuel subsidies on treasury resources, the government is developing renewable energy infrastructure. The government aims to generate 42% of the country's total electricity needs through renewable sources by 2020, and 52% by 2030.
  • Morocco faces a housing shortage in line with its growing population and urbanization. Despite the construction of a large number of housing units, supply remains relatively low compared to demand. According to the Ministère de l'Habitat et de la Politique de la Ville, (MHU), the ministry of housing and urban policy, despite the construction of a large number of housing units, the country recorded a housing deficit of 642,000 units in 2014, indicating that rising demand is still oustripping supply. To maintain a balance between supply and demand, 170,000 new units are required to be constructed every year to reduce the housing shortage.
  • A number of large transport projects to improve and expand the country's road and rail networks are in progress. To improve the country's transport infrastructure, the government is seeking help from foreign investors. To help the government meet its targets, in January 2016, the African Development Bank (AfDB) approved a loan of MAD1.1 billion (US$112.3 million) for the development of rail infrastructure project.
