Construction in Bahrain – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025

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. Oil price drop 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 of 2.1%.

This report reveals that the country’s construction industry is expected to grow at an average rate of 4.3% between 2022 and 2025. This will be supported by investments on the development of the country’s overall infrastructure with its economic vision 2030.

Dhananjay Sharma, Analyst at GlobalData, comments:

“Despite economic diversification efforts, hydrocarbons still account for more than 70% of fiscal revenue and, as a result, the public finances are vulnerable to oil price volatility. The IMF’s forecast of a rise in oil prices by 21% in 2021 offers respite to Bahrain’s Government as it would facilitate further investments in the industries, energy and utilities and infrastructure sector, which would help in the government’s diversification efforts.”
