Bahrain construction sector to recover, set for 2.1pc growth

Bahrain’s construction output contracted by an estimated 0.2% in real terms in 2020 as the industry faced disruptions due to the Covid-19 pandemic and movement restrictions to prevent its spread. 

 

Added to this was the oil price drop, which further compounded this problem as Bahrain is highly dependent on oil revenue. 

 

However, driven by investments in infrastructure, oil and gas and in renewables, the industry is expected to recover in 2021 with an expected real growth rate of 2.1%, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

 

The kingdom’s construction industry is expected to grow at an average rate of 4.3% between 2022 and 2025, stated GlobalData in its report, 'Construction in Bahrain – Key trends and opportunities to 2025.'

 

This will be supported by investments on the development of the country’s overall infrastructure in line with its economic vision 2030, it added.
