Central America Infrastructure Report Q1 2016

BMI View: We forecast an average of 2.1% real growth for the six construction industries of CentralAmerica in 2016. The decline from our forecast for 2015 - 4.4% - is mainly due to a steep drop-off inPanama as it concludes expansion of the Panama Canal and a normalisation of a housing boom inNicaragua. The region will still offer significant opportunities: the transport sector will see strong growthas development funds target regional integration and Panama will recover by 2018 as increased publicspending funds a strong project pipeline.Latest Updates And Structural Trends

El Salvador's construction industry is poised to benefit from an influx of capital from regionaldevelopment banks and a US aid agency. We have downgraded our forecast for 2015 to a still positive,but muted 1.3%. However, we expect development agency backed projects to pick up steam in 2016 andforecast the construction industry to grow at 4.6% annually from 2016 to 2019.

Honduras is also gaining support from development banks and is set to end its construction industryrecession in 2016. Although projects in the country have suffered from delays in the past, our optimismfor the industry is supported by a number of high-value projects which have already reached financialclose and are set to break ground early in 2016.
