Peru Infrastructure Report

BMI View: Our 2015 construction industry forecast for Peru stands at a solid 7.1% real growth on the back of a robust project pipeline, high infrastructure demand, and strong government support for infrastructure development. Peru's construction industry will grow by an average of 5.1% over the next five years, which is lower than the double-digit growth registered over the last decade but still strong by regional standards.

A USD20.5bn budget in infrastructure investment between 2011 and 2016 has prompted strong growth in Peru's construction industry as the industry reported annual average growth of 9.5% between 2011 and 2013. High value investment plans to expand Peru's infrastructure over the next few years should continue to drive strong growth; however, cracks in the business environment cannot be ignored and may erode growth potential over the medium term.

Key trends and developments in the industry:

  • We expect the Peruvian government's commitment to infrastructure development to remain solid as the construction industry is highly labour intensive and the creation of jobs is a powerful tool towards improving the popularity of President Ollanta Humala.

  • Considerable investment is being ploughed into Peru's mining sector, putting pressure on the country's existing infrastructure and creating huge demand for new capacity. Mining is typically both electricity- and water-intensive; this is placing a strain on existing infrastructure, which in turn is threatening mining activity. Therefore investment into desalination plants, expanded electricity supply and more reliable transmission and distribution is crucial to the sector, as well as the country's economy.

  • Peru has a large concession pipeline, orchestrated by private investment agency ProInversion. The agency's project pipeline includes ports, airports, power infrastructure and desalination plants. However, continuous delays on the tendering process are affecting investor's confidence in the market.
