Construction in Oman - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in Oman - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023


Oman's construction industry suffered a downturn during 2017-2018, contracting by 6.7% and 2.5% in real terms in 2017 and 2018 respectively, following an average annual growth of 9.3% during the preceding three years.

The government's efforts to enhance transport, tourism and industrial infrastructure will support the growth of the industry over the forecast period (2019-2023). The industry's output is expected to be supported by improvements in business confidence over the forecast period, which will drive investment in infrastructure, commercial, residential projects and energy infrastructure. The focus on the development of renewable energy infrastructure is also expected to drive industry growth. The government aims to generate 10% of the country's total energy requirements from renewable sources by 2025.

Industry growth will also be driven by Oman's 2040 Industrial Strategy, under which the government marks industrialization, diversification and privatization as growth opportunities. The government is investing in non-oil sectors to reduce the country's dependency on the oil and gas sector; this will support the growth of the construction industry over the forecast period.

The industry's output value in real terms is expected to rise at a CAGR of 6.22% over the forecast period.

Key Highlights

- GlobalData expects the residential construction market to record a forecast-period CAGR of 7.56% in nominal terms, driven by public and private sector investments in the construction of new residential buildings to meet the demand for housing. The government's efforts to build affordable housing units are also expected to support the market output over the forecast period. In October 2018, the Ministry of Housing and the Supreme Council of Planning started the construction of the Barka integrated residential project. The project involves the construction of 1,000 housing units on a 350,000m2 area at Saqsouq in the Wilayat of Barka.

- Forecast-period growth in the commercial construction market will be driven by the government's efforts to promote tourism in order to support and diversify the economy and create jobs. Under the 2040 Tourism Strategy, the government aims to attract 11.7 million international and domestic tourists by 2040. The plan seeks to provide 80,000 rooms for accommodation and create 535,574 jobs by 2040. More than 30 public entities and 50 private entities will be involved in implementing the strategy, in which the government plans to invest OMR20.0 billion (US$51.9 billion) in the tourism sector by 2040.

- GlobalData expects the energy and utilities construction market to account for 37.0% of the industry's total value in 2023. The market will continue to expand over the forecast period, driven by the government efforts to promote renewable energy. The government aims to generate 10% of the country's total energy requirement through renewable sources by 2025. In 2017, an agreement was signed between the Oman Investment Fund (OIF) and Ningxia Zhongke Jiaye New Energy and Technology Management Co. to construct a 1,000MW solar power plant in the central-eastern town of Duqm. The total investment in the project is anticipated to be OMR36.2 million (US$94.0 million), and is scheduled to be completed in two phases by the end of 2019.

- The infrastructure construction market's growth in the forecast-period will be driven by public and private sector investments in public transport infrastructure. In the 2019 state budget, the government allocated OMR1.2 billion (US$3.1 billion) for infrastructure projects. The government aims to encourage the development of the country's road, airport and other core transport infrastructure, which is expected to support the market's growth over the forecast period. To boost investment in the country's infrastructure projects, the State General Reserve Fund (SGRF) received government approval in 2018 to launch an OMR385.0 million (US$1.0 billion) infrastructure fund.

- The total construction project pipeline in Oman - as tracked by GlobalData, and including all mega projects with a value above US$25 million - stands at OMR81.3 billion (US$211.3 billion). The pipeline, which includes all projects from pre-planning to execution, is skewed towards late-stage projects, with 70.5% of the pipeline value being in projects in the pre-execution and execution stages as of February 2019.
