PUNE, India, October 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —

Global Construction Outlook 2020 market research report says construction industry has
regained growth momentum, with the pace of expansion accelerating to 3.8% in 2015, and
then an average annual increase of 3.9% over 2016-2020.

Complete report on construction industry spread across 87 pages and supported with 11
tables and 118 figures is now available at .

Based on the CIC’s Global 50, a grouping of the 50 largest and most influential
markets in the world, the global construction industry is projected to grow from US$7.4
trillion in 2010 to US$8.5 trillion in 2015 and to US$10.3 trillion in 2020, when measured
at constant 2010 prices and exchange rates (real 2010 US$).The construction industries in
emerging markets are forecast to continue to grow at a much faster rate than the advanced
economies. With reference to the CIC Global 50, emerging markets accounted for more than
half of the world’s construction output for the first time ever in 2012 (at 2010 US$) and
by 2020 it will have a 56% share. From 2016-2020, the construction industries in advanced
economies combined are forecast to expand by 2.2% a year on average, while emerging
markets will record a 5.3% annual expansion during the same period. However, the advanced
economies are at least improving, with growth accelerating from just 0.6% a year on
average in 2011-2015.

The construction industries in the Middle East and Africa region are predicted to be
the fastest growing in 2016-2020, overtaking the Asia-Pacific region, which held the top
spot in 2011-2015. This reflects the huge investment in infrastructure and buildings that
is taking place in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), while the
slowing rate of growth in China’s construction industry is a key factor driving the
deceleration in Asia-Pacific. However, Asia-Pacific’s share of the global construction
industry will continue to rise, reaching close to 49% in 2020, up from 40% in 2010. The
precarious state of the Eurozone, which has intensified following the election of an
anti-austerity party in Greece, will continue to undermine investor confidence in the
region. However, in general the worst is over for the region’s construction industry. Many
of the countries that had suffered double-digit declines in construction output in the
wake of the financial crisis are now turning a corner and starting to grow again. However,
reflecting the extent of the decline, it will be after 2020 that the construction industry
in Western Europe will return to the pre-crisis levels. The US will also fail to surpass
its pre-crisis high by 2020.
