Construction in the Philippines – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Summary

The Philippine construction industry registered a growth of 15.1% in real terms in 2018. This was preceded by an average annual growth of 9.6% during the preceding four years. Growth during the review period (2014-2018) was driven by positive developments in regional economic conditions and government investment in residential, transport and energy infrastructure.

The industry’s output value is expected to continue to expand in real terms over the forecast period (2019-2023), driven by the government’s plans to upgrade the country’s transport infrastructure. In addition, public and private sector investments in residential, commercial and educational infrastructure construction projects are expected to support growth in the industry over the forecast period. The government’s investment in the development of the country’s transport infrastructure under the Build, Build, Build program is expected to support industry growth. In the 2019 budget, the government proposed to spend PHP909.7 billion (US$17.2 billion) under the Build, Build, Build program to develop the country’s crumbling transport 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.

The government’s efforts to build affordable housing units for the country’s low- and middle-income population in order to address the country’s housing shortage are also expected to support the market over the forecast period.
– In February 2019, the government approved the proposed 2019 budget, with a total expenditure of PHP3.8 trillion (US$72.2 billion) – an increase of 13.1% over the 2018 budget. Priority investments outlined by the government under this budget include infrastructure development, social services and poverty reduction. The government is planning to spend 36.7% of the total 2019 budget on social services such as education, healthcare, culture and manpower development, welfare and employment, housing and community development and social security.
– GlobalData expects the energy and utilities construction market to register a forecast-period CAGR of 12.21% in nominal terms, driven by the government’s efforts to promote renewable energy. To reduce the country’s reliance on imported energy, cut carbon emissions and generate more electricity through renewable sources, the government is developing renewable energy infrastructure. Accordingly, the government plans to increase the country’s renewable energy installed capacity to 20,000MW by 2040 under the Philippine Energy Plan (PEP) 2017-2040.
– Forecast-period growth in the infrastructure construction market will be driven by public and private sector investments in the development and modernization of the country’s transport infrastructure. According to the Department of Budget and Management, the government plans to invest PHP36.2 billion (US$686.5 million) on ten flagship infrastructure projects in 2019. Accordingly, the government is set to implement five railway projects, three bridge and road construction projects and two flood control projects that year.

Construction in Kuwait – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in Kuwait - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary Kuwait's construction industry suffered a downturn for a third year in a row in 2018, where it contracted by 4.0% in real terms, preceded by annual declines of 1.4% and 0.4% in 2016 and 2017 respectively.
