Construction in New Zealand – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Summary

The pace of expansion in New Zealand’s construction industry slowed in 2017 and 2018, as investment growth was undermined by weak investor confidence as a result of a shortage of a skilled workforce, high wages and a lower profit margin. The industry’s growth will pick up pace in 2019, in part supported by government plans to boost infrastructure spending.

In real terms, New Zealand’s construction industry’s output grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.85% during the review period (2014-2018). Although output growth slowed in 2017 and 2018, the general upward trend can be attributed to public and private sector investment in residential and transport infrastructure projects. Under the National Land Transport Programme, the government invested NZD13.9 billion (US$9.7 billion) to develop the country’s overall transport infrastructure during 2015-2018.

Industry growth over the forecast period (2019-2023) will be supported by public and private sector investments in transport, institutional and residential construction projects. In September 2018, the government announced plans to invest NZD16.9 billion (US$11.2 billion) on the development of the country’s overall transport infrastructure over the next three years; of the total, NZD5.3 billion (US$7.7 billion) will be spent on improving state and highways roads. The government’s effort to balance the demand and supply of affordable residential buildings for first-time buyers is also expected to attract investments in the residential market. Under the KiwiBuild program, the government aims to construct 100,000 affordable homes across the country by 2028, of which 50,000 will be built in Auckland. Moreover, an increase in the number of residential building permits issued is expected to support new construction activity over the forecast period.

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a CAGR of 3.57% over the forecast period.

Key Highlights

– GlobalData expects the residential construction market to retain its leading position over the forecast-period and account for 43.8% of the total value in 2023, driven by the government efforts to balance housing demand and supply through the construction of affordable housing units. In the 2019 budget, the government announced plans to invest NZD197 million (US$136.1 million) to construct 2,700 housing units by 2023 under the Housing First Programme.
– In May 2019, the government announced that it increased the 2019 budget by 8.8%, going from NZD102 billion (US$70.4 billion) in 2018 to NZD111 billion (US$75 billion) in 2019. Of the total budget, it allocated NZD19.9 billion (US$13.4 billion) to the Ministry of Health, NZD16.1 billion (US$16.1 billion) to the Ministry of Education, NZD5.8 billion (US$3.9 billion) to the Ministry of Transport and NZD2.2 billion (US$1.5 billion) to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.
– GlobalData expects the infrastructure construction market to post a forecast-period CAGR of 3.89% in nominal terms, driven by the government’s plan to develop the country’s transport infrastructure. In September 2018, the government announced plans to spend NZD16.9 billion (US$11.7 billion) to develop the country road transport infrastructure under the National Land Transport Program during the period of 2019-2021.
– Forecast-period growth in the energy and utilities construction market will be driven by the government’s efforts to develop the telecommunication infrastructure in order to improve broadband and mobile coverage in the rural and remote locations of the country. In December 2018, the government announced the expansion of the Rural Broadband Initiative Phase 2 (RBI2) and Mobile Blackspot Fund (MBSF) program, through which it plans to extend broadband and mobile coverage to 99.8% of the population by 2022.
– The total construction project pipeline in New Zealand – as tracked by GlobalData, and including all mega projects with a value above US$25 million – stands at NZD73.1 billion (US$50.5 billion). The pipeline, which includes all projects from pre-planning to execution, is skewed towards late-stage projects, with 66.7% of the pipeline value being in projects in the pre-execution and execution stages as of July 2019.

Construction in France – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in France - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary The French construction industry registered marginal growth in 2018, with output expanding by 1.1% in real terms - down from 3.5% in 2017. The pace of expansion was hampered by sluggish economic growth, which eased to 1.5% in 2018, compared to 2.3% growth in 2017, owing in part to a hike in fuel taxes and transporter's strikes. Investor confidence is also being undermined by political risks associated with the ‘yellow vests' protests. Although the number of protestors at the ‘yellow vests' rallies in France fell sharply by mid-2019, there are growing concerns over the impact on the economy from the disruption caused by the movement since it began late 2018. The protests were initially established to challenge fuel ta......

Construction in the UK – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in the UK - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary Construction activity in the UK was weak in 2018, owing to weak business confidence as a result of the UK's planned exit from the EU (Brexit). Poor investor confidence, coupled with sluggish economic growth, reduced construction activity in a number of sectors, particularly commercial buildings.

Weak economic growth and high levels of risk to business operations relating to Brexit will continue to constrain construction activity during the early part of the forecast period. Uncertainty over the UK's future outside of the EU continues to unnerve investors, an......
