Key Highlights

The construction industry in Bahrain is in a stage of recovery after struggling from the lows of 2008–2009 financial crisis and political unrest since 2011. According to the Central Informatics Organization (CIO), in the third quarter of 2013 the Bahraini construction industry’s contribution to GDP accounted for 6.3%. The industry is expected to value BHD3.4 billion (US$8.8 billion) in 2018, with growth largely supported by heavy investments in infrastructure and housing projects. A number of other major projects are either in the planning stage or under construction, such as the Gulf rail line development, airport expansion plans, infrastructure for three new cities, investment in power and water projects, a public transport network due in 2030, and a new state-of-the-art exhibition center.

Construction growth will also be driven by the Bahrain Economic Vision 2030, through which the country is looking to become a developed nation by diversifying its economy, achieving sustainable development and providing a high standard of living for its population. The Economic Development Board (EDB) has initiated a program to formulate the first national economic strategy. To accomplish this, both public and private funds will be required to maintain and develop infrastructure. In January 2014, the government also announced plans to spend BHD835.5 million (US$2.2 billion) to enhance power facilities. This project will be a part of a BHD3.8 billion (US$10.0 billion) Gulf Corporation Council (GCC) fund allocated for the improvement of infrastructure.

To diversify its economy from oil, the government is actively pursuing its Economic Vision 2030 which marks industrialization, diversification and privatization as growth opportunities. The government is making efforts to attract foreign investors and increase the participation of private investors in other economic sectors than oil. Efforts to diversify the economy will create opportunities for the construction industry.

Bahrain is a part of a large rail network development plan covering countries in the GCC. The 2,177km network will stretch from Kuwait to Oman. The BHD9.5 billion (US$25.0 billion) project will link Kuwait City, Dammam in Saudi Arabia, Manama in Bahrain, Doha in Qatar, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain in the UAE, and Sohar in Oman. Construction is likely to start in 2014 and is expected to be complete in 2018. The project also comprises the construction of a causeway linking Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, boosting intra-regional trade through freight and passenger travel.

In its 2013 draft budget, the government proposed the allocation of 10.6% of its total capital expenditure, valuing BHD114.8 million (US$302.3 million) towards social projects. It includes the development of housing, healthcare, educational and vocational training and social welfare projects.

In the third quarter of 2013, the housing ministry allocated BHD3.0 billion (US$8.0 billion) towards the construction of new housing. It includes the construction of the first phase of the Durrat Marina, the second phase of the Wahat Al Muharraq and a new 128 villa project at Durrat Al Areen. The residential market in Bahrain will, therefore, record an increase in the number of housing projects over the forecast period.
