BMI View: We maintain our view growth will accelerate in the global construction industry in 2017 and2018. A combination of rising public and private capital for infrastructure investment is the primary driver.

Rising political risk in emerging markets, in additional to persistent weakness in commodity prices, is themajor risk to our positive outlook.

The global construction industry will see growth accelerate in 2017 and 2018, driven by a combination ofrising public and private financing for infrastructure. A combination of stimulus and other governmentinvestment platforms, a gradual rise in commodity prices and increase in private capital for financinginfrastructure is supporting this expansion.
