The Current State of the Construction Industry


After a 3-year decline in the construction sector, the State Bank of Pakistan stated growth of 85% (about Rs. 355 billion) in construction and housing finance in the previous year.

This is due to the increase in development activities, caused largely because of the different packages (with reduced taxes) that have been introduced by the government for private companies to incentivize construction.

Furthermore, recent trends have also boosted demand; for instance, consumption of steel bars and cement has particularly increased in Karachi as old houses of 5 marla, 10 marla and 1 kanal are undergoing a complete renovation.
