Undergoing full reconstruction, the Iraqi lucrative market offers huge business opportunities to both international exporters and local manufacturers and distributors. Everything is needed: from basic infrastructure to housing, hotels, schools, and public buildings rehabilitation. Companies from countries like USA, Turkey, Lebanon, France, England, Germany, Saudi Arabia present services in different fields in Northern Iraq cities like Arbil, Sulaimaniya and Dohuk which have a population of 8 million where the investments grow very fast.
In Iraq, there is a focus on reconstruction with the participation of foreign investments and the private sector. The Iraqi government has undertaken a massive $70 billion plan to invest in various Iraqi key sectors. It is expected to spend billions of dollars in the coming years in the following construction related sectors: $25 billion in Housing Projects, $8 billion in Transportation and $5.5 billion in Water and Sewage. The focus in Iraq is on reconstruction as the government rebuilds essential infrastructure such as power, water utilities, transport infrastructure, residential housing and others. Iraq‚Äôs reconstruction has created a huge demand for both construction expertise and capital and the Iraqi government has publicly stated its need for the participation of foreign investors to achieve its objectives. Without taking into consideration any population growth, Iraq is already faced with a housing supply shortage. When this is coupled with a rapidly growing population that is expected to reach 40 million by 2025
, Iraq will need a considerable number of new housing units in a relatively short period of time. The Iraq Ministry of Housing and Construction estimates 2 million new homes are needed by 2015 with 85% of demand to be fulfilled by the private sector. According the Iraqi National Investment Commission (NIC), private foreign investment in Iraqi housing is expected to grow with estimated upper-range investment of USD$40 billion in 2010. Partnering with local developers would enable foreigners to bypass a rather steep learning curve that is always present when entering new markets. Moreover, the slowdown in competing markets, especially in the Gulf region, presents an excellent opportunity for foreign investors. Great opportunities exist in building sector materials as Iraq imports most building materials including cement. Today local cement production only meets 25% of domestic demand.
