Slovenia Infrastructure Report

BMI View: The fortunes of the Slovenian construction industry have finally taken a positive turn after five years of contraction. According to 9M14 construction indicators from the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia, the construction sector grew 40% year-on-year. We're forecasting the Slovenian economy will have moved out of recession in 2014 to post 2.0% growth. We've accordingly adjusted our 2014 and 2015 industry figures upwards; however, we remain relatively cautious as growth - economic and industrial - in 2014 can be largely attributed to the very low base of 2013. Nonetheless, we're more optimistic than we have been for the last few years and believe infrastructure will settle into a modest, if restrained, growth pattern from 2015, thanks largely to EU energy and transport funding.

As for the infrastructure subsector mix, there will be very little change in dominance over our forecast period to 2024. Residential and non-residential building will continue to hold the bulk of total construction over the infrastructure industry, averaging 57% to 43% respectively. Transport will contribute around 73% to total infrastructure value, with roads and bridges dominating transport spending. Energy and utilities will contribute 27% to infrastructure value over this period. The industry is forecast to grow in value by 48% from EUR1.8bn (USD2.3bn) in 2015 to EUR2.8bn (USD3.4bn) in 2024.

Following are the key areas of growth in the infrastructure sector:

Fraport signed an agreement with a consortium led by SDH to buy the stake for EUR177.1mn (USD224mn). SDH received about EUR16mn (USD20.24mn) for its 6.82% stake in Aerodrom Ljubljana, while the Slovenian government received EUR118.8mn (USD150.26mn) for a further 50.67% in equity. Fraport made the partial...
