BMI View: Yemen continues to face both political and economic difficulties that threaten to hamper growth in its construction and infrastructure industry. We forecast that the contraction seen by the sector over 2011 and 2012 will continue, but at a slower rate. We expect a year-on-year contraction of 1.8% for 2013, taking the industry's value to US$2.0bn. Weak growth is set to return from 2015 onwards, with industry value expected to reach US$4.4bn by end-2021.
Key developments in the sector:
* Yemen's electricity and energy minister, Saleh Sumai, has announced that the ministry is to supply 500 megawatts (MW) of additional power by mid-2013. He also announced contracts to buy 183MW and outlined details of an extra 243MW that is to
* Yemen's state-owned Public Electricity Corporation (PEC) has received proposals for a 305km transmission line connecting Dhamar with Aden, passing through Ibb and Taiz. The winning company will secure a 27-month contract to design, produce, deliver, deploy, test and commission the project, which has already received funding from the Abu Dhabi Development Fund. In addition, the contract will involve connecting the five line sections and points with new and old substations.
* The Zayid Motherhood and Childhood Hospital opened in the al-Rawda area of Sana'a. The hospital, which required investment of around YER1.5bn (US$6.94mn), aims to improve health services for children and mothers. It will provide essential healthcare services to people in the Bani al-Harith district and from other cities. The hospital has five floors, each with 180 beds, five operation rooms, external clinics and emergency rooms.

Political stability will continue to elude Yemen for the foreseeable future. Although the country's fortunes appeared to be improving, following the election of Mansur al-Hadi as president in February 2012, the uptick in violence over the year demonstrates that Yemen's political conflict is far from over. Without significant international support, the country risks falling into another period of prolonged instability.
Although inflation in Yemen looks to be past its peak, rapidly rising prices will remain the norm well into 2013. Political violence has resulted in supply-side disruptions across the economy, and in the absence of a broad-based calming of the country's ongoing political conflict, we expect inflation to stay in the double digits for the foreseeable future.
