Construction in Peru Key Trends and Opportunities to 2021

72 pages report Published in Feb 2017


The Peruvian construction industry recovered slightly in 2016, following a decline in 2015, due to the government's focus on developing the manufacturing sector and reducing its reliance on mineral and metal ore exports. The country's construction industry registered a growth of 1.8% in 2016 in real terms.

Following four years of growth, the construction industry contracted by 5.8% in 2015. This was due to a decline in the revenue generated by commodity exports in line with a weak global demand for metal and minerals, which in turn reduced government spending power for major infrastructure projects.

Over the forecast period (2017-2021), the industry will be supported by the government's focus on the development of transport infrastructure, energy and utilities facilities, and residential buildings through a robust project pipeline across transport, energy, water, residential and social infrastructure.

With the aim reducing the country's infrastructure gap, the government is increasing its investment in transport, education, healthcare, potable water and sewerage infrastructure. Accordingly, in 2015 it launched the TransPerĂș Nama plan for an investment of PEN19.7 billion (US$6.2 billion). The plan aims to develop metro and rail lines, bus fleets and cycle lanes by 2020.

In real terms, the Peruvian construction industry is expected to increase from a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.66% during the review period (2012-2016) to 2.36% over the forecast period.
