BMI View: We hold a positive outlook for Peru's construction industry, with significant public and private investment in a number of sectors driving forward a recovery in the market from 2016 onwards. There are some potential headwinds to growth, including frequent delays to the tendering process and a lack of capacity on the part of domestic construction firms , but overall we expect to see healthy progress in the development of the country's transport, utilities and housing infrastructure through to 2025 meaning Peru presents an increasingly attractive investment environment.
We continue to forecast a healthy recovery in construction industry value in 2016, with the sector expected to grow 4.2% over the year. We have made a marginal downwards revision to our forecasts for growth in the oil and gas pipeline infrastructure sector due to expected delays to the Southern Peruvian Gas Pipeline project.
The remainder of the energy and utilities sector is expected to see robust growth, particularly in terms of renewable energy projects, including wind and solar power. The Ministry of Energy reported in April 2016 that output from wind and solar power in March 2016 had increased 79% y-o-y and with a large number of projects in the pipeline we expect to see further gains in this sector.
Our forecasts for the remainder of the forecast period therefore remain positive, with total construction value expected to increase 3.1% annually between 2017 and 2025. Upside risk to these forecasts stem from the conclusion of general elections in June 2016 with both competing parties committed to expanding infrastructure investment in the country.
