Africa Valuations

Luanda | Angola

Angola overtook Nigeria to become Africa’s largest oil producer in 2016, producing 1.7 million barrels per day.

Market highlights

  • Until recently, the country’s economy was booming, but GDP growth rates in 2015-16 were significantly impacted by falling oil prices.
  • Prime office rents are the highest in Africa, despite falling over the last two years on the back of reduced demand from oil companies.
  • Luanda is ranked by Mercer the second most expensive city in the world for expatriates, largely due to the scarcity of good housing.
  • In addition to the CBD, a major focus for development activity is the Luanda Sul/Tatalona area in the south of the city.
  • The retail property sector remains undersupplied, although several major mixed-use developments are under construction.
