Construction in China - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2019

News   •   Aug 21, 2015 07:44 EDT adds report “Construction in China - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2019” to its store.


Construction activity in China has been fairly weak since 2014, due to a slowdown in the property market, huge unsold housing stock, a relatively sluggish economy and high local government debt-to-GDP ratios. Consequently, the country's construction industry posted growth of 6.8% in real terms that year. This was preceded by annual growth rates of 13.5%, 9.7%, 9.3% and 9.5% in real terms in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 respectively.

Moreover, China's fixed asset investment increased at the slowest pace in 15 years, from a 17.2% increase during January-May 2014, while fixed asset investment increased by 11.4% during the same period in 2015. In real terms, the industry's output value recorded a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.85% during the review period (2010-2014), and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.99% over the forecast period.

Key Highlights

• The construction industry in China is expected to grow at a slower pace over the forecast period as compared to review period, due to sliding economic growth. Expected expansion in the industry over the forecast period will be driven by huge demand for transport infrastructure and affordable housing amid the ongoing urbanization process. In an effort to boost domestic consumption - as the country's urban population as a part of the total is expected to increase from 53.7% in 2014 to 60% by 2020 - the government released the 2014-2020 urbanization plan in 2014. Accordingly, the government is planning to expand its urban infrastructure, transport network and social housing by 2020 to handle the growing urban population.

• The Ministry of Transport (MoT) has stated that in 2015, the total investment in the country's infrastructure construction will amount to CNY2.5 trillion (US$406.2 billion), which includes the construction of railways, roads, waterways and airports. Of the total investment, CNY800 billion (US$130.0 billion) will be spent on the construction of an 8,000km rail track, and CNY800 billion (US$130 billion) will be spent on the construction of 57 ongoing and 27 new water conservation projects.

• The residential construction market will be supported by government-led affordable housing projects. Under the 12th Five-Year Plan, the government outlined its plans to construct 36 million affordable housing units across the country between 2011 and 2015. According to the Ministry of Housing and Urban-rural Development, the government fund allocation towards the affordable housing projects grew from CNY172.9 billion (US$27.9 billion) in 2013 to CNY198 billion (US$32.4 billion) in that of 2014, at an increase of 14.5%. In 2014 alone, the government constructed 5.1 million housing units in urban areas, with 2.3 million housing units underway.

• In a bid to stem sliding economic growth, the Chinese government is making ongoing efforts to accelerate spending on the construction industry. In March 2015, the government allocated CNY1.1 trillion (US$185.8 billion) to upgrade the country's internet infrastructure and CNY124.3 billion (US$20.2 billion) for affordable housing. These projects will drive the construction industry's growth over the forecast period.

• Infrastructure investment remains a key strategy for supporting economic growth. In its 2015 budget, the Chinese government increased expenditure on infrastructure development by 4.4%, from CNY457.6 billion (US$74.5 billion) in 2014 to CNY477.6 billion (US$77.6 billion) in 2015. This will contribute to the continued expansion of infrastructure construction over the forecast period.
