Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Construction Market in Japan 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the construction market in Japan: Daito Trust Construction, Nishimatsu Construction, Obayashi and Taisei

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Kumagai Gumi, Shimizu, Sekisui House and Takenaka

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The government is implementing new measures to boost private investment for reconstruction and maintenance of public infrastructure. One of the measures implemented is the revision of the PPP model, commonly known as PFI in Japan. The PFI Act of 1999 was revised in 2011 to promote private investment in the country. Initially, the act was based on the BOT scheme where private entities undertook financing, designing, and construction of projects, which were then operated and maintained by public sector entities. However, under the revised PFI Act, the private sector will not only be responsible for financing and construction, but will also be entrusted with the maintenance and operation of the facility. To encourage participation by private investors in the construction market, the Japan Exchange Group is planning to create a new market to enlist funds from institutional investors, such as pension funds and insurance companies. These new measures undertaken by the government will increase investment in the construction sector in Japan.”

According to the report, the real estate market in Japan, particularly the non-housing building construction sector, is growing at a moderate rate. Low borrowing costs and increased rental prices for commercial properties are attracting foreign investors, which is driving the demand for commercial buildings.

Further, the report states that the decline in working age population is adversely affecting the service industry, particularly, the construction and manufacturing sectors.
