Infrastructure Insight: Australia

Summary

With 500+ large-scale infrastructure construction projects in Australia (at various stages of development from announcement to execution); Australian construction market seems to make a comeback with these projects alone accounting for total investment value of AUD643.2 billion (US$493.2 billion).

There are now huge infrastructure upgrades in roads, rail, and other infrastructure underway, and more in the pipeline over the coming years. The railways sector accounts for the largest share of the project pipeline, with a total project value of AUD339.4 billion (US$260.2 billion). This is followed by roads, energy, telecommunication and water and sewerage projects respectively. For airports and other infrastructure construction projects in Australia, the total pipeline of works has a value of AUD53.4 billion (US$40.9 billion).

The total value of the infrastructure construction market reached AUD55.0 billion (US$42.0 billion) in 2017. Though significantly down from AUD63.4 billion (US$48.6 billion) in 2012, output is projected to grow to AUD76.91 billion (US$59.0 billion) by 2022 (in nominal value terms). Market expansion over the forecast period will be driven by recovery in investment in infrastructure construction activity and improvements in the regional economy. The government’s plan to develop the country’s transport network is expected to provide positive prospects for the market over the forecast period.
