Construction in Thailand – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2024

Summary

Thailand’s construction industry regained growth momentum in 2018, with output expanding by 2.7% in real terms – up from -2.8% in 2017. Growth during the review period (2014-2018) averaged 4.6% a year, and was supported by positive developments in regional economic conditions and government investments in transport, residential and energy construction projects.
The industry is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2019-2023), albeit at a slower pace compared to the review period. Growth will be driven by the government’s efforts to develop the country’s transport infrastructure, coupled with efforts to boost the residential construction market. In the first half of 2019, the government announced plans to allocate THB4 billion (US$125.6 million) to finance five low-cost housing projects in the country, while in the 2020 budget, the government allocated THB650 billion (US$20.4 billion) towards capital expenditures. The focus on the development of the energy sector is also expected to drive industry growth. The government plans to add 56,431MW of new power capacity by 2037 under the updated power development plan (PDP 2018-2037).
Investments to develop infrastructure in Chachoengsao, Chonburi and Rayong provinces under the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) scheme are also expected to support growth in the industry over the forecast period. In order to attract foreign manufacturing companies, create a value-based economy and reduce social disparity, the government is developing the EEC, a new industrial zone. In October 2018, the government agreed to approve four more large-scale infrastructure projects under the ECC scheme.
The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.48% over the forecast period.

Key Highlights

– GlobalData expects the residential construction market to account for 40.3% of the industry’s total value in 2023, supported by ongoing urbanization and government efforts to balance housing demand and supply through the construction of low-cost housing units. In late 2018, the Government Housing Bank (GH Bank) launched the one-million-unit low-cost housing scheme in a bid to provide affordable housing to the country’s low-income population. Under the new scheme, GH Bank approved THB4.3 billion (US$135.1 million)-worth of loans to 6,300 people, and is expected to approve loans worth THB10 billion (US$314.1 million) in 2019.

– To transform Thailand into a gateway to South Asia and develop a link to the Eastern Economic Corridor, in January 2019 the government approved THB106.8 billion (US$3.4 billion) to develop the Southern Economic Corridor (SEC) over the next four years. The plan seeks to develop 116 projects in Chumphon, Surat Thani, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Ranong provinces during the period of 2019-2022.

– Infrastructure construction market’s growth over the forecast-period will be driven by public and private sector investments in the development and modernization of the country’s transport infrastructure. In the first half of 2019, the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) announced plans to invest THB90 billion (US$3 million) to develop and upgrade railway tracks in the country’s southern region, in a bid to reduce travel time and encourage tourism in the region.

– In January 2019, the National Energy Policy Council approved the updated power development plan (PDP 2018-2037). Under this plan, the country’s power production capacity is expected to increase by 67.5%, going from 46,090MW in 2017 to 77,211MW in 2037. The plan seeks to add 56,431MW of new power capacity by 2037, of which 20,766MW is from renewable energy projects. Consequently, public and private sector investments in power infrastructure development to meet the government’s targets will drive the energy and utilities construction market’s growth over the forecast period.

– The total construction project pipeline in Thailand – as tracked by GlobalData, and including all mega projects with a value above US$25 million – stands at THB11.5 trillion (US$355.9 billion). The pipeline, which includes all projects from pre-planning to execution, is skewed towards late-stage projects, with 60.3% of the pipeline value being in projects in the pre-execution and execution stages as of October 2019
