Project Insight – Port Construction Projects: Europe

Summary

According to CIC analysis, Europe has the lowest investment of all the regions in port construction, which reflects its position as a mature but slow-growth economic area with developed port facilities. The EU growth rate of 2.4% in 2017 is relatively low compared with the dynamic economic growth of Asia-Pacific. Uncertainty resulting from the Brexit vote in the UK, together with declining global demand for manufactured goods, has dampened economic activity in Europe. Ports for the EU28 countries handled 975 million tonnes of cargo in Q1 2018, down from 978 million tonnes handled in Q4 2017, but up by 2.8% on the cargo handled in Q1 2017. Rotterdam was the leading port in the EU, with 433 million tonnes, followed by Antwerp, with 201 million tonnes in 2017.

GlobalData’s Construction Intelligence Center (CIC) is currently tracking port construction projects in Europe with a total value of US$59.7 billion. Of this, US$24.1 billion is in the planning stage and US$22.0 billion is in the execution stage. Russia accounts for the highest value with US$21.2 billion, followed by the UK with projects valuing US$7.0 billion. Poland and Italy follow with port construction projects with values of US$6.4 billion and US$5.1 billion respectively. The highest value project in Europe is the US$7.1 billion Taman Sea Port Terminal Development project in Russia.

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. The BRI, which was launched in 2013, is aimed at developing the modern day versions of the land-based "Silk Road Economic Belt" and the "Maritime Silk Road of the 21st Century". Under the initiative, China is seeking to improve infrastructure in emerging nations across the world, facilitating economic development through companies being able to transport goods more easily and cheaply between countries......

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. 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 deman......

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 termsĀ¬ in 2018, up marginally from 4.......

Construction in Norway – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in Norway - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary In real terms, the Norwegian construction industry registered growth of 4.6% and 3.9% in 2017 and 2018 respectively, following an average annual growth of 3.5% during 2014-2016. This growth was due to positive developments in economic conditions and investments in transport infrastructure, energy and housing construction projects. The industry is expected to continue to expand in 2019, with the industry's output expected to expand by 4% in real terms that year. However, the construction industry is expected to suffer a downturn in 2020, contracting by an estimated 0.3% in real terms, due to a deceleration in gross fixed capital formation in the construction industry and contraction in the total number of dwellings sta......

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.

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......

Construction in Switzerland – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in Switzerland - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary The Swiss construction industry expanded by 1.4% in real terms in 2018; this was preceded by annual growth of 1.3% in 2017, 1.6% in 2016 and 0.1% in 2015. Slow growth can be attributed to the sluggish economic expansion during the period of 2015-2017, coupled with low global commodity demand, although the government's investment in infrastructure, energy and institutional construction projects provided support to the construction industry to remain positive. The industry is expected to record marginal growth over the forecast period (2019-2023), supported by investment in commercial, institutional, residential and renewable energy projects. To reduce traffic congestion in the country, the government is focusing ......

Global Construction Outlook to 2023 – Q3 2019 Update

Global Construction Outlook to 2023 - Q3 2019 Update Summary This report provides a detailed analysis of the prospects for the global construction industry up to 2023. GlobalData has revised downwards its forecast for global construction output growth in 2019 to 2.7%, which will be the slowest pace of growth in a decade. The deterioration in construction output growth across emerging markets has been worse than previously expected, particularly in the Middle East, while some major advanced economies have struggled to generate growth momentum, including the US, the UK and Australia. In China, where the authorities are stepping up investment in infrastructure to prevent a continued slowdown, growth will remain positive, contributing to a slight acceleration in growth in total output in t......

Construction in Iraq – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in Iraq - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary Following three years of contraction, Iraq's construction industry is expected to recover in 2019, with the industry's output expected to register a growth of 25% in real terms that year. The growth momentum is expected to continue throughout the forecast period (2019-2023), driven by a recovery in crude oil prices, coupled with government's investment towards new oil and gas projects, as well as water and sewage infrastructure. Furthermore, the government's plan to redevelop war-affected transport infrastructure and houses in the country is expected to support the industry's output over the forecast period. In July 2019, the government allocated IQD2.6 trillion (US$2.2 billion) to redevelop the country's damaged infra......
