Infrastructure Insight: The US

Infrastructure Insight: The US

Synopsis

This report provides a detailed look into the infrastructure sector in the US, including analysis of the state of the current infrastructure, the regulatory and financing landscapes and the major projects in the construction pipeline.

The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.

Summary

With the release of the Trump administration’s America First: Budget Blueprint in March 2017, and more recently the fiscal year 2018 Budget, A New Foundation for American Greatness, in May, the public is slowly beginning to gain insight into what Trump’s US$1 trillion 10-year infrastructure plan may look like.

The 2018 Budget proposes meeting this target through a combination of new federal funding and incentivized non-federal funding. While the administration has earmarked US$160 billion of federal funding for the 2018–2022 period, public funds will be focused on incentivizing additional non-federal investments rather than providing direct funding for infrastructure projects.

Scope

Key Highlights

In January 2017, the Trump Administration released a list of projects to the National Governor’s Association called the Emergency and National Security Projects. These projects were identified by the administration as among the most likely to be targeted under infrastructure proposals. The project list carries a total value of US$137.5 billion.

The IIC is currently tracking 1,817 large-scale infrastructure construction projects in the US, at all stages of development from announcement to execution. These projects have a total investment value of US$1.54 trillion.

According to the Infrastructure Intelligence Center (IIC), the infrastructure construction market’s total value reached US$334 billion in 2016, up from US$303 billion in 2011. Output is projected to grow to US$430 billion by 2021 (in nominal value terms), corresponding to a 5.1% annual average growth rate.
