The publisher expects the construction industry in Cameroon to expand by 5.5% in real terms in 2024 and rebound at an annual average growth of 6.2% over the remainder of the forecast period (2025–28), supported by investments in the infrastructure, industrial and energy and utilities sectors. According to the National Institute of Statistics of Cameroon (NSO), the construction industry’s value add rose by 4.5% year on year (YoY) in Q2 2023, preceded by Y-o-Y growth of 8.4% in Q1 2023 and 8.9% in Q4 2022. In November 2023, the Minister of Economy, Planning and Regional Development announced mega hydropower project, under which, the country aims to build 420MW Hydroelectric Power Station, on the Sanaga River. The CFA832.8 billion ($1.3 billion) project is expected to boost Cameroon's electricity output by 30% and will also supply power to neighboring countries.

The construction industry’s output over the forecast period will also be supported by the government investment under the Stratégie Nationale de Développement 2020–30 plan (National Development Strategy, known as SND30). A part of the plan, the government plans to invest CFA37.5 trillion ($58.5 billion) on flagship plans, programs, and projects until 2030. Of the total, CFA5.9 trillion ($9.2 billion) will be spent on the Energy Plan to upgrade all transmission and distribution networks and boost hydroelectric, solar, thermal, and biomass energy production capacities over the next 10 years. Some of the major projects that will be executed under Energy Plan include the construction of hydroelectric power plants in Grand Eweng, Katsina-Ala, Kikot, Nachtigal-Upstream, and Mouila-Mogue. It also includes the CFA250 billion ($390.2 million) on the Digital Technology Plan to expand the optical fiber network and build two data centers, and the CFA7.9 trillion ($12.3 billion) Multimodal Transport Infrastructure Development Plan between 2021–30.
