Construction in Chile – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023


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. In addition, in 2018, foreign direct investment (FDI) in the country increased by 206%, due to the government’s introduction of a new FDI policy. Growth during the review period (2014-2018) averaged 1.2% a year, and was supported by public and private sector investment in energy and utilities, infrastructure and residential construction projects, leading to an increase in demand for the Chilean construction industry.

The industry’s output value is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2019-2023), due to increasing investments in transport infrastructure, energy, commercial and industrial projects, as well as improvement in consumer and investor confidence. The government plans to invest CLP9.3 trillion (US$14 billion) to develop the country’s roads, railways, hospitals and other social infrastructure during the period of 2019-2023. According to Cámara Chilena de la Construcción (the Chilean Chamber of Construction – CChC), the total investment in construction grew by 2.7% in 2018; this was preceded by annual contractions of 4.6% in 2017 and 0.7% in 2016.

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.07% over the forecast period.
