BMI View: We expect growth in Taiwan's construction sector to pick up beyond 2015, supported by expansionary spending policies, a focus on developing the country's transport network and a rebalancing of the power sector. The presidential elections in 2016 pose the most significant downside risk to our outlook.

Forecast And Latest Updates

  • We expect growth of 0.3% in Taiwan's construction sector in 2015, followed by 2.8% in 2016. Significant headwinds from Taiwan's export-oriented manufacturing sector due to the ongoing slowdown in China coupled with reduced global demand for tech products will weigh on the non-residential buildings segment.

  • Construction activity will be supported by expansionary expenditure and monetary policies, a focus on developing the country's transport network and a rebalancing of the power sector.

  • The presidential elections in 2016 and uncertainty to policy continuity could weigh on the country's industry reward score over coming quarters.
