Market Overview

Ethiopia’s construction industry is one of the most exciting in Africa. With double-digit GDP growth and a swelling population, new construction projects break ground each day.

But the current pace of building is not enough – rapid urbanisation is causing backlogs in housing, infrastructure and commercial buildings. What’s more, Ethiopia’s buyers and project owners need large amounts of building materials, and local supply cannot meet the demand. This means there are great opportunities in Ethiopia for all kinds of suppliers from around the world.
