Philippines Infrastructure Report

BMI View: Strong growth in the Philippines' construction sector will be supported by the private sector, with residential building activity supported by a relatively stable monetary policy. Public construction will also pick up as Aquino Benigno looks to accelerate projects under the public-private partnership programme before ending his single-term as president in 2016.

Key Trends And Developments

  • We expect the Philippines' construction sector to register double-digit real growth in 2015, expanding 10.9% in 2015, with growth largely underpinned by the private sector. The residential building boom continues to lift construction activity, while the government maintains a relatively stable monetary policy.

  • Public construction would also be supported by an acceleration of the Public-Private Partnership programme as President Aquino Benigno look to approve more projects before the upcoming elections in 2016.

  • We expect growth to moderate beyond 2015 as the elections would disrupt policy continuity. A change in leadership would also signal a review of current projects, which will lead to project delays.

  • The Supreme Court's ruling on some of the acts under the Disbursement Acceleration Programme as unconstitutional, will also limit spending on infrastructure by public agencies.

  • The energy and utilities segment will be a key growth area, with a water deficit in Metro Manila driving demand for water projects. The energy sector will also have significant room for growth, with gas expected to be the favoured source for power generation.
