DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Nigeria Construction Market Size, Trends and Forecasts by Sector – Commercial, Industrial, Infrastructure, Energy and Utilities, Institutional and Residential Market Analysis, 2022-2026” report has been added to’s offering.

Nigeria’s construction industry is forecast to grow by 5.7% in 2022, picking up from growth of 3.1% in 2021. Growth in the industry will be supported by the gradual recovery in overall economic conditions and investments in the infrastructure, healthcare and energy sectors; however, total construction output will not surpass 2019 levels until 2023.

The construction industry is projected to continue to expand over the remainder of the forecast period, recording annual average growth of 3.1% between 2023-2026, supported by the government’s investment on infrastructure and housing development projects.

In December 2021, the federal government announced the National Development Plan 2021-2025, with a focus on economic rejuvenation, including strengthening industrialization. The government also committed to invest in key infrastructure, such as telecommunications, transport, energy and housing. The government plans capital expenditure of NGN49.7 trillion ($123.1 billion) for critical infrastructure projects during the period, with NGN298.3 trillion ($738.6 billion) expected from the private sector.

To support the infrastructure sector, in February 2021, President Muhammadu Buhari approved the development of an infrastructure company named “Infra-Co”, with an initial capital of NGN1 trillion ($2.5 billion), which will primarily focus on the country’s infrastructure development.

In September 2021, the Nigeria Exports Processing Zones Authority (NEPZA) partnered with the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) to facilitate investment in the three special economic zones in Lagos, Kwara and Katsina. The three new zones are for medical, agro-allied and cotton clusters. The Federal Government has also approved a total of six states economic zones (SEZs) across the six geo-political zones; three to be developed in the fiscal year (FY) 2021, and three in FY2022.

Furthermore, in September 2021, the government announced the approval of the National Policy on 5G Networks for Nigeria’s Digital Economy. The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) stated in December 2021 that the roll-out of 5G will be carried out in phases in 2022, beginning with major cities, where there is demand for high-quality broadband.
