This report provides an in-depth assessment of state of infrastructure spending - both current and future, the drivers and barriers to infrastructure growth, and the major projects in the construction pipeline.
The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.
- The global infrastructure market totaled US$3.1 trillion in 2016, and is expected to grow by 6.0% on an annual basis until 2020.
- In 2016, developing economies accounted for 62% of total infrastructure spending, and are forecast to represent 66% by 2020.
- Infrastructure spending is closely aligned with GDP growth; annual average global growth is projected to stand at 3.0% in 2016-2020. This comes following a quieter 2011-2015, when global economic growth averaged 2.2%.
- Spending on infrastructure reached US$3.1 trillion in 2016. It is expected to grow to US$4.2 trillion in 2020. China accounts for 29% of the world's infrastructure expenditure, and is set to grow at 10.5% annually to 2020.
- In terms of investment opportunities, The IIC is currently tracking over 12,700 public and private large-scale infrastructure projects worldwide, from initial announcement to the execution phase.
- Collectively, these projects are worth US$14.2 trillion. Power and electricity projects dominate at a cost of US$5.4 trillion, while railways, valued at US$5.2 trillion, account for the second-largest sector.
- Road projects recorded the third-largest cost share of US$1.9 trillion, followed by airports and ports (US$1.2 trillion) and water and sewerage (US$421.5 billion).
- Almost half of all projects require private investment, either directly or through PPPs.
