BMI Industry View
BMI View: It is not difficult for Angola’s construction industry to post growth, due to its extremely low baseline. We forecast average annual real growth of 12.6% between 2012 and 2016 - the highest in the region. There are a number of projects under way in the transport and the housing sectors that provide optimism for sustained growth in the country’s construction industry. The construction industry value is expected to reach US$9bn in 2012.
The key factors driving our forecasts this quarter are:
- The Angolan government has invested US$1.2bn in the expansion of the commercial port of Lobito, reports Dredging News Online. The expansion includes the construction of a new import and export terminal for mining products, which is close to completion. It will also see the extension of the port's quay in order to allow 12 vessels to dock simultaneously. The expansion will increase the port's annual handling capacity to 11mn tonnes.
- Zambian construction company Basali Ba Liseli Resources announced that it would construct an oil pipeline between Angola and Zambia. The refinery is initially earmarked to refine 200,000 barrels of crude oil a day.
- The run-up to Angola's August 2012 general election has been free from political tensions,
despite the forced resignation of the president's chosen head of the electoral authorities. We do not foresee a serious threat to the government of José Eduardo dos Santos, who has ruled the country for 32 years. BMI believes that the ruling party's control of state institutions will make a ruling party victory all but certain. We predict that political risk will rise after the election, as competition increases to succeed 70-year-old dos Santos.
We forecast that Angola's rapid economic growth will continue, with headline GDP growth due to accelerate to 12.8% in 2012. This increase is largely due to booming oil exports, which BMI forecasts will jump by 19.7% in 2012. Domestic consumption and government spending will also increase, but the country's economy will remain unhealthily dependent on energy exports over our 10-year forecast period to 2021.
Increased oil production and higher oil prices will cause Angola's current account surplus to increase from the 21% of GDP recorded in 2011 to 27% of GDP in 2012. BMI estimates that Angola's oil exports will be worth 56.9% of GDP in 2012, underlining the vulnerability of the country's balance of payments situation to lower crude prices.
