BMI View: Singapore is home to a mature infrastructure sector, with extensive and modern transport, utilities and social infrastructure in place across the city-state. A slowdown in domestic economic growth has dampened short-term growth prospects in the construction sector, particularly in terms of residential construction, however overall growth is expected to be maintained throughout the forecast period, driven largely by public investment in transport infrastructure.

Forecast And Latest Updates

  • One of the largest projects due to enter the pipeline is the development of a high speed rail connection between Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and Singapore - with a current estimated completion date of 2022. While no construction firms have yet been appointed, China may have an advantage following the late 2015 acquisition of a 60% stake in Bandar Malaysia by China Railway Engineer Corporation.

  • Transport infrastructure will be the main driver of growth through much of the forecast period, growing by an average 6.1% annually between 2016 and 2025. Residential and utilities will see slower growth, contributing to an overall growth forecast of 3.2% annually over the ten year forecast period.

  • Singapore has seen a slowdown in economic growth in recent quarters and the country's heavy dependence on international trade creates vulnerability in light of alarming fluctuations in key trading partner China. As such we note a downside risk to current forecasts stemming from a further economic decline.
