Mozambique's construction industry is expected to recover marginally by 0.2% in 2021, following a 0.9% contraction in 2020. The rise in Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections in January and February 2021, as well as militant attacks in the gas-rich Cabo Delgado province in March 2021, weighed on investments in the country's Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) projects and hindered development activities in the first half of 2021. According to Instituto Nacional de Estatistica (INE), the construction industry contracted by 2.9% year on year (YoY) in the first half of 2021, based on the real value-add measure. However, recent government measures to safeguard the country have strengthened investor and organizational confidence in resuming operations gradually this year, and into 2022, which will fuel the industry's expansion.

Over the remainder the forecast period, the construction industry is expected to register an annual average growth of 4.7% between 2022-2024, supported by investments on the energy, transport and telecommunication infrastructure projects, as part of the Programa Quinquenal Do Governo (the government’s five-year program PQG 2020-2024). The program focuses on improving the well-being and quality of life of the Mozambican families, while reducing social inequalities and poverty. In addition, the vast potential of LNG capacity, coupled with the government’s focus on providing 100% electricity access to all Mozambicans by 2030, will attract public and private sector investments towards the country’s gas and power infrastructure projects over the medium and long terms. The government's focus on constructing over 3,000 classrooms for primary education and 200 secondary schools across the country, as well as building and equipping 30 district hospitals, five vocational training centers, renovating four professional training centers and completing construction on three vocational training centers by 2024, will pave the way for industry acceleration over the forecast period.

In March 2021, the government presented the proposed budget framework for 2022-2024, with an emphasis on boosting agriculture, electricity, construction and health sectors. According to the proposed budget, the construction industry will grow at a rate of 3.2% to 5.5% between 2022 and 2024, supported by investments in public and private infrastructure, including the construction of 50,000 affordable housing units, 12 bridges and the rehabilitation of three bridges, 787km of national highways and 4,000km of rural roads, the paving of 1,200km of national and regional roads and the establishment of the Zumbo - Indico connection. Overall, the budget forecasts that the country’s economy will grow by 2.1% in 2021, and expand at an annual average of 4.2% between 2022-2024.
