Construction outlook in Congo

The Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of the Congo are two western African countries retaining 2.687.409 km² and vast road networks. Highways and roads expansion have been inevitable since 2012 and the Africa Infrastructure Development Plan. Each year, one city is selected to be the beneficiary of a vast program of construction, including roads, highways and airports.

After drastic economic damages rising in 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemic, the Congolese economy is expected to rebound in 2021 and 2022 if the world economy does. Real GDP should grow 1.2% in 2021 and 1.5% in 2022. Growing GDP proposes the expansion of roads and highways. Although Congo already owns 82,000 km of paved roads, the quality is the missing piece of them. Therefore, the country requires a massive amount of bitumen to develop and maintain the network per year. Bitumen price and import are likely to rise in the country accordingly.

Major ports of Boma and Matadi are the compatible ports of the Democratic Republic of the Congo with bitumen and petrochemicals containers. In the Republic of the Congo, the major port of Pointe Noire also receives exported petrochemicals. Considering the facilities and restrictions of the three ports, New Steel Drum and 1 MT Jumbo Bag in Steel Cage are the finest packagings of bitumen.

Expanding and maintaining the roads of the Democratic Republic of the Congo requires 160,000 tons of penetration grade bitumen 60/70 in New Steel Drum annually. The measure is 100,000 tons for the Republic of the Congo.

Construction sites in both DR Congo and the Republic of the Congo favor 60/70, 80/100, Vg-30 and Vg-40 over other bitumen grades. However, Infinity Galaxy, a professional bitumen supplier in Congo, provides all bitumen grades at the customer’s request. Our clients, in Pointe Noire, receive the bitumen cargo in 23 days from Jebel Ali port. The transit time is 37 days for the port of Matadi.
