Infrastructure Insight: Malaysia

Synopsis

This report provides a detailed look into the infrastructure sector in Malaysia, 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

Malaysia is expected to see some of the fastest infrastructure output growth rates in the world over the coming years to 2021, a continuation of trends seen in the first half of the decade.

The total value of the infrastructure construction market reached US$10.6 billion in 2016, according to the Infrastructure Intelligence Center (IIC), up from US$6.0 billion in 2011.

Output is projected to grow substantially to US$21.8 billion by 2021 (in nominal value terms), corresponding to a 15.5% annual average growth rate.

This growth in spending is based on the assumption that a number of the large-scale transport projects move ahead as planned, including the Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit System, the Pan Borneo Highway Upgrade and the East Coast Rail Link.Scope

Key Highlights

The IIC is currently tracking 86 large-scale infrastructure construction projects in Malaysia, at all stages of development from announcement to execution.

These projects have a total investment value of US$124 billion. The railways sector accounts for the largest share of the project pipeline, with a total project value of US$53 billion.

The 2017 budget includes a significant portion of funding for the various infrastructure sectors. Among a number of initiatives, US$244 million has been outlined for widening and improving broadband coverage, with US$1.4 billion and US$605 million set aside for the transportation and logistics and utilities sectors respectively.

Malaysia currently has a well-developed physical infrastructure, scoring 5.7 for the overall quality of its infrastructure (within a range of 1 to 7, with a higher score reflecting a higher quality), corresponding to a global rank of 15th.
