  • Synopsis

    Following four years of contraction, the Ukrainian construction industry rebounded in 2016 and registered annual growth of 17.4% in real terms. This momentum continued in 2017 with a growth rate of 35.4%, driven by improving investor confidence and a declining budget deficit, which supported new investments in residential, infrastructure and commercial construction projects.

    The industry is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2018-2022) as the government continues to implement major structural reforms to revitalize the economy growth. This is expected to restore business confidence and drive funds towards construction projects. Moreover, the government’s large-scale investments in transport, energy and residential infrastructure projects will also drive industry growth over the forecast period.

    The industry’s output value in real terms increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.63% during the review period (2013-2017), and is expected to post a CAGR of 12.57% over the forecast period.

    Key Highlights

    Timetric expects the infrastructure construction market to retain its leading position over the forecast period, with a share of 40.1% of the industry’s total value in 2022. In January 2018, the government announced plans to spend UAH323.8 billion (US$11.4 billion) on the construction of road infrastructure by 2023. Under this, the government plans to modernize 9,100km of highways and completely renovate 1,000km of roads across the country by 2023.

    In January 2018, to support economic development and growth, the government launched the Digital Economy Strategy. Through this, the government aims to create investment opportunities, and ensure social and economic inclusion. Accordingly, the government is planning to ensure digitalization in the sectors such as medical, education, ecology, transport and infrastructure by 2021. It also plans to equip 80% of households with a high speed broadband connection by 2021. This will support construction activity in the telecommunications category.

    Timetric expects the energy and utilities construction market output to record a forecast-period CAGR of 19.73% in nominal terms, driven by the government’s focus on increasing country’s renewable energy generation capacity. The government plans to increase the share of renewable energy in the country’s total energy mix from 4.0% in 2017 to 25.0% by 2035. To meet this target, the government aims to invest UAH210.0 billion (US$7.9 billion) annually by 2035.

    In 2017, PrivatBank, a large commercial bank in Ukraine, signed a contract with State Mortgage Institution with the aim to increasing the lending process for the construction of affordable houses. In addition, Citic, a Chinese state-owned company, sanctioned a loan of UAH327.7 billion (US$15.0 billion) to the government for the construction of affordable houses until by 2030.

    The total construction project pipeline in Ukraine as tracked by the Construction Intelligence Center (CIC) - including all mega-projects with a value above US$25 million - stands at UAH1.9 trillion (US$71.0 billion). The pipeline, which includes all projects from pre-planning to execution, is well balanced, with 50.6% of the pipeline value being in projects in the pre-planning and planning stages as of April 2018.
