BMI View : Factors which inform our long-term bullish view on Turkish infrastructure remain in play . P rivatisation of assets and the use of PPPs, a supportive government and a geographic and demographic potential . However, over 2016 and 2017, we expect investment to slow - particularly in the residential and non-residential sectors - as currency depreciation, tightening credit and political risk remain key drags on sentiment.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

  • We have downgraded our construction industry value real growth forecasts for 2016 and 2017, now 2.1% and 3.7% y-o-y respectively. This is lower than last quarter, following our revised estimation the industry grew by just 1% y-o-y.

  • Rail and road projects continue to see our forecasts for transport infrastructure growth remain buoyant at 4.8% in 2016. However, energy and utilities infrastructure growth has been lowered for 2016 on the back of the breakdown in relations between Moscow and Ankara and its impact on Turkey's nuclear and pipeline projects.

  • Driven by the contracts awarded under the government's USD500bn regeneration programme and continued strong building in Istanbul, the residential sector will perform well. We forecast real annual average growth of 2.8% over our 10-year forecast period, with the non-residential sector dragging down that figure.

Risk/Reward Index

  • Turkey ranks in 10th place within the Central and Eastern Europe grouping of the RRI, with an overall score of 55.

  • The size and long-term growth potential of the Turkish infrastructure market is significant, but Turkey's banking sector remains reliant on expensive external financing. Turkey's Rewards score is 51.8.

  • Transparency in the tendering process remains a concern but more use of the public-private partnership model will begin to address this. Policy continuity under the AKP will help assure investments. Turkey's Risks score is 62.3.
