NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsis
Construction activity in Argentina was weak during the review period (2011–2015), due to a depressed business environment, high inflation and currency devaluation. This led to a reduction in public and private sector investments in construction. Consequently, the construction industry's output value in real terms contracted at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -1.42% during the review period
Industry growth over the forecast period (2016–2020) is expected to remain subdued, recording a CAGR of 0.55% in real terms. A high inflationary trend is expected to have a negative impact on the industry until 2017.
A gradual improvement in regional economic conditions is expected to support the industry in the following years, with improving business confidence and subsequent public and private sector investments in construction projects.
The government's efforts to provide affordable housing to the country's low income population will support growth in the industry. Moreover, the government's aim to increase the production of renewable energy is also expected to drive investment in energy and infrastructure projects over the forecast period.
