Construction in Philippines - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (Q1 2021)

Construction in Philippines - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (Q1 2021)

Summary

The Philippine construction industry has been severely affected by the disruption caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The industry had been the fastest growing in Asia-Pacific before the pandemic, growing by 8.9% in real terms in 2019, following growth of 14.9% in the previous year. However, construction output contracted by 34% in the fourth quarter, and by 29.7% in 2020, due to the impact of containment measures on the progress of construction projects across many parts of the country.

GlobalData expects the Philippine construction industry to recover strongly in 2021 and grow by 26.9% in real terms. In 2022, the industry is projected to register growth of 11.4%, and then expand by an annual average rate of 7.4% over the remainder of the forecast period (2023-2025). The government’s programs that are promoting the development of affordable housing, transport and renewable energy infrastructure are expected to continue to support the expansion of the industry in the coming years.

In October 2020, the House of Representatives approved the PHP4.5 trillion (US$86.4 billion) national budget for 2021, which is equivalent to 21.8% of GDP, and is 9.9% higher than last year’s budget of PHP4.1 trillion (US$79.2 billion). The Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 budget will focus on improving the country’s healthcare system and increasing investment in public and digital infrastructure. Support will also be provided by the implementation of the Corporate Recovery and Tax Incentives for Enterprises Act (CREATE), effective from 1st January 2021; the scheme will run until 30th June 2023. CREATE will reduce corporate income tax from 30% to 25% and is hoped to bolster increased foreign investment. In February 2021, the government announced plans to raise a fund of PHP454.5 billion (US$23.7 billion) to finance major infrastructure development projects.
