2. MOROCCO CONSTRUCTION MARKET OVERVIEW
Published by BNC for The Big 5 Construct North Africa, February 2018
Morocco experienced positive GDP growth in the fourth quarter of 2017, notably due to a strong performance in the agriculture sector. Nonagricultural GDP contributions such as services, mining, construction, manufacturing, and tourism also appear to be picking up. Government programs are enabling economic activities with investments in energy and infrastructure to address the needs of a growing population. The positive momentum in 2017 seems to carry over into construction. This intelligence report looks at the overall performance of the Moroccan construction market based on the total number and estimated value of active projects which are in the concept, design, tender, under construction and on hold stages of development.
The report begins by analyzing the stage-wise and sector-wise values and volumes of projects before highlighting some of the high-value projects responsible for much of the construction growth in the country.

INFRASTRACTURE PROJECTS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY
The Ministry for Infrastructure, Transport and Logistics is in the process of carrying out studies into more than 20 PPPs, with the first expected to be launched in 2016. In January 2016, key infrastructure projects for Casablanca were announced, including the development of the city road network and the construction of two bypass roads and a tunnel on the national highway, RN1. These road projects are expected to cost USD$ 316 million and be finished by 2020.
Other Transport Sector Projects
Projects valued at USD$ 426 million have been launched to build a second tram line and to extend the first tram line in the city. Three new port construction projects have been identified in the National Port Strategy 2030 as eligible for PPP. These are a general port at Kenitra (USD$ 864 million), an LNG port at Jorf Lasfar (Phase 1 – USD$ 745 million and Phase 2 – USD$ 100 million) and a fishing-industrial port at Dakhla (USD$ 616 million.)
The Ports Sector
Ongoing projects include expansion of the ports in Casablanca and Jorf Lasfar, as well as improvements to the ports in Mohammedia, Sidi Ifni and Kenitra. A new port in Safi, supported by public sector financing, is on schedule to begin operations in 2017. The €435 million port will have an annual capacity of 14 million tonnes. The government construction contract was awarded to Moroccan group SGTM.
The Air Transport sector
Air transport is also receiving significant government investment with the expansion of Casablanca’s Mohammed V International Airport as one of its major projects. Once the expansion work for terminals 1 and 2 have been completed in 2017, the airport capacity will double from seven million to 14 million passengers. Airport upgrades are also underway in Fez, Marrakech and Nador.
