The report provides a detailed look into the infrastructure sector in Mexico, including analysis of the state of the current infrastructure, the regulatory and financing landscapes and the major projects in the construction pipeline.
Mexico's infrastructure construction expenditure is poised to grow at a relatively strong rate over the next decade. The total value of the infrastructure construction market reached MXN961 billion (US$51.9 billion) in 2015, according to Timetric, up from MXN766.7 billion in 2010, and it will rise to MXN1.2 trillion in 2020 (in nominal value terms). This rapid growth in spending is based on the assumption that a number of the large-scale infrastructure projects move ahead as planned, including the MXN171 billion Mexico City New International Airport, the expansion of Veracruz port, the Mexico City-Toluca high-speed train and the Oriental Nuclear Power Plant.
- Over 170 large-scale infrastructure construction projects in Mexico, at all stages of development from announcement to execution. These projects have a total investment value of US$91.3 billion.
- The electricity and power sector accounts for the largest share of the project pipeline, with a total project value of US$42.1 billion. This is followed by airports and other infrastructure projects, with a pipeline value of US$20.5 billion.
- When its current infrastructure is compared to the other regional peers (Argentina, Brazil and Colombia) through the World Economic Forum's Global Competitiveness Report, Mexico performs better in terms of overall quality.
- The administration of President Enrique Peña Nieto has expressed its commitment to deliver better infrastructure so as to support the economy's growth and improve opportunities for citizens. Under the NIP 2014-2018, the government is looking to invest MXN7.8 trillion (US$591 billion) to be distributed across a number projects in the sectors of transportation, telecommunication, urban development, energy, water, health, and tourism.
