Civil engineering covers infrastructure for transportation, telecommunications, energy, and other purposes.

The Australian construction industry is forecast to generate total revenues of $158.9bn in 2016, representing a compound annual rate of change (CARC) of -0.2% between 2012 and 2016.

The civil engineering segment is expected to be the industry's most lucrative in 2016, with total revenues of $72.8bn, equivalent to 45.8% of the industry's overall value.

While residential construction exhibited healthy growth during the 2012-2016 period, civil engineering declined. This was primarily because of a return from unusually high levels of activity during the commodity boom. Non-residential construction performed relatively weakly also.
