Top construction companies in Tanzania

The construction industry in Tanzania has been mainly driven by construction companies due to increasing demand for urban accommodation.The industry contributed 13.6% to the country’s GDP last year compared to 2015 when the sector accounted for only 7.8% of the county’s GDP.

According to the Tanzania National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), the slowing of the growth rate was due to reduced investments in construction activities. However the government resolved the problem by investing majorly in a pipeline of projects including transport infrastructure through setting aside 25.4% of the total budget of the fiscal year 2017–2018 for infrastructure development projects.

  1. I think corona crisis will affect the cost of the construction materials especially the imported materials .
    As long as borders are closed , so shipment of construction materials become difficult , that will lead to expansion of local available construction material costs
