Construction in Canada – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Summary

The Canadian construction industry registered minimal growth in 2018, with output expanding by 0.6% in real terms – down from 4.3% in 2017. The sharp deceleration in activity was mainly driven by significant declines in residential construction, as well as repair, engineering and other construction activities. Overall, the industry posted negative growth during the review period (2014-2018), registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -0.29% in real terms. Low commodity prices, weak household spending and a decline in manufacturing investment hindered growth during the review period.

Over the forecast period (2019-2023), Canadian construction activity is expected to be supported by the government’s planned investments in infrastructure. Under the Investing in Canada Plan, the government plans to invest a total of CAD180 billion (US$139 billion) in key infrastructure sectors through 2028. The industry’s output is also expected to be supported by improvements in business confidence over the forecast period, which will drive investment in overall infrastructure. In addition, the government’s aim to improve local energy resources is expected to support investment in energy infrastructure projects, which will in turn fuel growth in the industry.

In real terms, the industry’s output value is expected to post a forecast-period CAGR of 0.90%.

Key Highlights

– GlobalData expects the residential construction market to register a forecast-period CAGR of 4.33% in nominal terms, driven by government’s efforts to build affordable houses.

– Industrial construction market’s forecast-period growth will be driven by government’s focus on the production of steel, aluminum and other manufacturing sectors with an aim to increase exports. In March 2019, the government announced a plan to invest CAD100.0 million (US$77.9 million) to support small and medium steel and aluminum manufacturers across the country.
– GlobalData expects the infrastructure construction market to register a forecast-period CAGR of 3.63% in nominal terms, driven by the government’s plan to develop the country’s transport infrastructure under the Transportation 2030 program. To modernize the country’s road, rail, airport and sea port infrastructure with an aim to increase trade activity and provide efficient transport system to citizens, the government plans to spend CAD233.1 billion (US$180.0 billion) by 2029-2030.
– Forecast-period growth in the institutional construction market will be driven by the government’s focus on the healthcare and education sectors. In the 2019 budget, under the Canada Health Transfer program, the government allocated CAD40.4 billion (US$31.1 billion) in Financial Year (FY) 2019-2020 – an increase of 4.7% compared to spending in FY2018-2019.

China’s Involvement in Global Infrastructure

China's Involvement in Global Infrastructure Summary This report provides a detailed analysis of China's involvement in global infrastructure. With its Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which is now thought to cover 132 countries, China has demonstrated its intention to increase its influence on global infrastructure development, and at the same time exporting its excess contractor capacity.

Construction in Chile – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in Chile - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary The Chilean construction industry recovered in 2018, with output value expanding by 3.2% in real terms, compared to -3.2% in 2017; this growth was supported by higher consumer spending, coupled with recovery in copper prices and global commodity demand, which in turn increased the government's ability to spend within the country's infrastructure.

Construction in China – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in China - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary China's construction industry is expected to expand at a relatively slower pace over the forecast period (2019-2023), as the government steadily shifts away from a policy of driving economic growth by investing huge sums in infrastructure developments. The heady days of double-digit growth in China's construction industry have long gone, with the authorities reining in excessive debt-driven investment in infrastructure and urban development. Nevertheless, in view of the recent slowdown in construction, the authorities can still revert to infrastructure investment to prop up the industry and support the economy when necessary. The construction industry in China grew by 4.5% in real terms¬ in 2018, up marginally from 4.......

Construction in the US – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in the US - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary Following weak growth in 2017, construction growth in the US accelerated in 2018, owed in part to corporate tax cuts and increased infrastructure investment by state and local governments. As a result, the country's construction industry grew by 2.2% in real terms in 2018, compared to 0.4% in 2017. However, growth is projected to decelerate this year to 0.5% in 2019, largely due to a decline in residential investment and heightened policy uncertainty from the recent escalation of the US trade war with China, which is weighing on business sentiment and holding back investment in major construction projects. On 1st August, President Donald Trump announced that he would impose a new 10% tariff on a further US$300 billio......
