During 2014–2015, the Iraqi construction industry registered a weak performance as collapse in oil prices led to a depressed economic environment. Additionally, the rise of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) since mid-2014 hampered the investor confidence which in turn reduced investments in construction projects.
The industry, however, gained traction in 2016, supported by government efforts to revamp economic growth through the development of infrastructure – particularly in regions liberated from ISIS.
The government’s aim to diversify the economy, coupled with efforts to reconstruct damaged transport and residential infrastructure in war-affected areas, is expected to support the industry’s growth, with construction output in real terms expected to post a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.68% from 2017 to 2021.

• The government’s effort to address the country’s housing shortage is expected to support the expansion of the residential construction market over the forecast period. Under the national housing program, the government is developing Bismayah, a new residential city project with a total investment of IQD11.7 trillion (US$10.0 billion). Being developed on a 1,830.0ha area, the project is expected to be completed in 2019. According to Timetric, the residential construction market is expected to post a nominal forecast-period CAGR of 4.93%, as compared with -1.09% registered during the review period.
• Financial assistance from international organizations has been vital to Iraq’s economy, following disruptions caused by ISIS.

• In December 2016, the Kurdistan government signed a contract with the UK-based water engineering company Biwater to develop water treatment facilities in the region. With a total investment of IQD1.4 trillion (US$1.2 billion), the project includes the construction of a new water treatment plant with a capacity to provide 600,000m3 of water in Erbil.
• To serve Shia pilgrims and tourists visiting Najaf and Karbala, in January 2016 the Ministry of Transport initiated the construction of the Imam Hussain International Airport in Karbala.
