Thailand Infrastructure Report Q2 2014

BMI View: We believe political upheaval in Thailand has not only further deteriorated the short-termoutlook for the country's construction sector, but has also started to negatively impact the sector's longtermoutlook. The ongoing political crisis in Thailand remains unresolved and looks set to intensify before aresolution can be reached. This has already resulted in fresh delays to the government's THB2trn (US$62bn) infrastructure plan and could further limit the growth potential in the entire construction sector. Assuch, real growth for Thailand's construction sector has been revised down to 1.9% in 2014 (previously3.5%), while the average real growth between 2014 and 2023 has been revised down to 2.4% per annum(previously 2.8%).

Key Trends And Developments

In December 2013, the Office of the National Economic Social Development Board approved the MassRapid Transit Authority of Thailand's plan to build a new urban railway line in Bangkok, the OrangeLine.

The first phase is valued at around THB85bnand is slated for completion in December 2018. The second phase, valued THB100bn, is expected to becompleted in 2019.
