With Batimat Egypt Projects Summit, Batimat gives the building sector’s suppliers the opportunities for: 

  • meeting all the Middle East and African building decision-makers,
  • benefiting from all the business opportunities of a country and more generally a very dynamic region where the expectancy level for technological solutions and innovations is very high.

Focus on the Egyptian construction market

  • The real estate sector in Egypt is considered to be utmost perspective and projected to grow by 70%, from $7.2 billion in 2012 to $12 billion by 2020.
  • Already, 27 new urban cities have been built around Egypt, with plans to increase this number to a further 59 by the end of 2017.
  • The proposed New Capital of Egypt is a large-scale 700 sq.m. project and will consist of 21 residential districts and 25 "dedicated districts" including the seats of government departments, key ministries and foreign embassies. 
  • The government allocated EGP 1.5 billion to subsidize the housing projects for low-income citizens, as well as a further EGP 55 billion for “restructure projects”, which will increase the demand on construction material and equipment.
