construction business

At BizFunding, we believe there are many reasons to be positive about our country’s construction industry.

Challenges remain, but 2024 is proving to be a year of opportunities for construction businesses in South Africa.

More tenders for contractors and small construction firms

One entity driving billions of rands worth of infrastructure development is the South African National Road Agency (SANRAL).

The state-owned agency closed more than R6 billion in tenders in Q4 2023. This year, tenders to the value of R28 billion are on the cards. At least 30% are earmarked for small construction companies and contractors.

2024 growth in the construction industry

Despite the tepid local economy, the construction industry is experiencing a surge in activity.

According to the latest Afrimat Construction Index (ACI), the sector expanded by 3% year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2023, the highest it has been in six years.

Projections are equally optimistic, with the average annual growth rate pegged at around 3% over the next four to five years.
