Construction in Peru – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022
Following two years of contraction, Peru’s construction sector rebounded in 2017, registering growth of 1.5% in real terms; this can be attributed to the government’s focus on developing the mining and manufacturing sectors. In 2016, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski was elected as president of Peru, and the new government is focusing on developing the manufacturing, mining and service sectors in order to reduce dependency on mineral ore and raw material exports.
Recovery in the country’s construction industry is expected to continue over the forecast period (2018–2022), in line with the pick-up in economic growth and commodity prices.
Over the forecast period, the government’s efforts to enhance transport, energy and residential infrastructure is expected to support industry growth. In September 2017, the government announced a plan to invest PEN28.0 billion (US$8.6 billion) on the development of housing, road, port, airport and dam infrastructure by 2020.
In addition, work related to rebuilding flood-affected regions is expected to support investment in construction projects. In September 2017, the government announced plans to invest PEN26.1 billion (US$8.0 billion) to rebuild highways, roads, bridges, houses, schools, health centers, sewage systems and farms which were devastated by flooding in March 2017.
The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.72% over the forecast period, up from -1.16% during the review period (2013–2017).

Timetric expects the residential construction market's output to record a forecast-period CAGR of 6.90% in nominal terms, driven by the government’s aim to bridge the gap between demand for and supply of affordable houses.

The energy and utilities construction market will be supported by large-scale investments. Under the Nacional de Electrificación Rural (National Rural Electrification Plan – PNER), the government plans to invest PEN135.0–168.8 million (US$40.0–50.0 million) annually on rural electrification by 2020.
Timetric expects the infrastructure construction market to grow at a CAGR of 10.23% in nominal terms, driven by investments in transport infrastructure. In December 2017, the government approved a plan to build a new road in the border area of Ucayali.

The government is focusing on the construction of water treatment plants, sewers and water pipelines, with an aim to provide better and safer water to residents. In 2017, the government launched the National Sanitation Plan 2017–2021, with an aim to provide a proper framework for the construction of sewage and water treatment plants in the country.
