Nigeria Construction Market Segmentation by Sectors
Infrastructure construction was the leading sector in the Nigerian construction market in 2022.
The key sectors in the Nigerian construction market are commercial construction, industrial construction, infrastructure construction, energy and utilities construction, institutional construction, and residential construction.
Infrastructure construction: The infrastructure construction sector is expected to grow at an annual average growth rate of more than 3% from 2024 to 2027, the government’s focus on prioritizing infrastructure spending to catalyze rapid economic development. Forecast-period growth in the infrastructure sector will also be supported by investments as part of the National Development Plan 2021–25. The plan is to increase the length of the total paved network, increase the country’s cargo handling capacity and aviation passenger traffic, and increase the percentage of the road network under scheduled maintenance and repair, among others.
Energy and utilities construction: The energy and utilities construction sector is expected to register an annual average growth of over 3% over the forecast period (2024–27), supported by investments in renewable energy, oil and gas, and telecommunications infrastructure projects.
Residential construction: The residential construction sector is expected to record an annual average growth rate of more than 1% from 2024 to 2027, supported by public and private investments on housing projects to address the country’s housing deficit. Rising construction material prices, supply chain disruption, and a dwindling number of potential home buyers will also weigh on the residential sector’s output in the initial part of the forecast period.
Commercial construction: The commercial construction sector is expected to register an annual average growth of around 3% from 2024-27, driven by investments in leisure and hospitality, retail, office, and data center building projects.
Industrial construction: The industrial construction sector is expected to grow at an annual average growth rate of over 2% from 2024 to 2027, supported by a rebound in manufacturing activities, coupled with an increase in new investments in the electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing sector.
Institutional construction: The institutional sector is expected to grow at an annual average growth rate of more than 2% from 2024 to 2027, supported by the increase in investment in healthcare infrastructure, coupled with the government’s ongoing efforts to develop and expand the country’s educational infrastructure.

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk
“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”
Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB
Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.
Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods
Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.
Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered
Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.
I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.
I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.
Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan
“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.
Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”
Senior Account Manager, TSYS
GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise. The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.
I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.
One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
