2014-02-18 05:38:01 - Construction in Tunisia - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017 - a new market research report on

The Tunisian construction industry grew at a CAGR of 5.58% during the review period. This was supported by private and public investments in infrastructural, residential, industrial and commercial construction projects. Despite some challenges, the outlook for the countrys construction industry is favorable as a result of the governments commitment to improving the countrys infrastructure and meeting the rising demand for residential units.

The Tunisian construction industrys output is expected to record a CAGR of 4.85% over the forecast period. Tunisia underwent major political upheaval in 2011 which resulted in the expulsion of President Ben Ali and the election of the Constituent Assembly. The impact of the political transition was reflected in the drastic decrease in FDI inflow into the real estate



sector in 2011. However, investor confidence improved in 2012 and FDI inflow into the real estate sector edged closer to pre-revolution levels as a result of the governments social housing and tourism initiatives.

Key Highlights

• Tunisias economy grew at an annual rate of 4.1% in 2012, sharply rebounding from a 0.2% decline in 2011, supported by a strong services sector, which grew by 5.6%, and a recovery in industrial output, which grew by 1.9%.

• Consumer price inflation increased from 3.6% in 2011 to 5.6% in 2012, the highest level in the past 17 years, led by a sharp increase in food prices. Factors such as an expansionary monetary policy, a sharp depreciation of the Tunisian Dinar against the US dollar (11.0%) and the Libyan crisis led to the increase in domestic prices.

• Infrastructure investment is pivotal to supporting long-term economic development. In a bid to improve the nations infrastructure, to protect cities against floods and for the development of electricity grids and natural gas pipelines, the Tunisian Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation estimated that the country requires more than TND2 billion (US$1.2 billion) for regional development projects.

• Increasing disposable incomes, urbanization and the countrys growing middle class will be the primary drivers for growth in retail sales. With a population of 10.8 million, Tunisia has a large consumer base and several multinational retailers are planning to enter and tap into the countrys huge market potential.
