Tanzania has in recent years seen unprecedented growth in construction sector, with mushrooming new houses, multi-storey buildings, roads and bridges, the trend that has contributed to surging demand for the building materials. Increased government funding on infrastructure development in almost every financial year has acted as an incentive for continued inflows of investments in the construction industry.
