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.

Construction in New Zealand – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

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.

Construction in South Korea – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Construction in South Korea - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023 Summary South Korea's construction industry suffered a downturn in 2018, contracting by 4.2% in real terms that year, following an average annual growth of 5.9% during the preceding four years. This decline can be attributed to a reduction in the government spending on infrastructure, a fall in the country's total exports and a decline in the total construction permits issued. The country's construction industry is expected to contract further in real terms - by 5% in 2019 and 1.7% in 2020 - before regaining growth momentum.
