Kenya Economic Outlook
Real GDP growth was a robust 5.8% in 2016, driven mainly by services (which accounted for 66% of growth) and industry
(which accounted for 19% of growth). Agriculture accounted for 15% of growth, the lowest in recent years. Growth in
services was driven by real estate (which grew 12%) and transport and storage (which grew 10%), and growth in industry
was driven by construction (which grew 8.2%) and manufacturing (which grew 6.2%). Real GDP growth declined to an
estimated 5% in 2017, due to subdued credit growth caused by caps on commercial banks’ lending rates, drought, and the
prolonged political impasse over the presidential election. The half-year estimates show that the economy remained
fairly resilient, growing 4.8%. Services accounted for 82% of that growth, and industry accounted for 17%; agriculture’s
poor performance continued. The economy is projected to rebound to GDP growth of 5.6% in 2018 and 6.2% in 2019.
