LONDON, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
In real terms, the Thai construction industry is set to perform better over the forecast period (2016–2020) compared to the review period (2011–2015). The industry's forecast-period growth will be driven by public and private sector investments in infrastructure, energy, commercial and residential construction projects.
Growth will also be driven by the country's development program over 2016–2022, under which the government aims to develop the country's transport infrastructure.
According to the Office of the National Economic and Social Development Board (NESDB), the country's gross fixed capital formation in the construction industry grew by 16.4% in 2015 compared to 2014.
The industry's output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.57% over the forecast period; up from 4.66% during the review period.
There are certain challenges associated with the Thai construction industry outlook. The shortage of a skilled labor force, poor contractor management, fragile political situation, and limited funding are expected to affect the growth prospects of the Thai construction industry. Moreover, the death of King Bhumibol Adulyadej in October 2016 is likely to pose a few threats to the country's macroeconomic stability.

- To improve the country's infrastructure and reduce logistics costs, the government is focused more on the expansion of the country's rail, road and other core transport infrastructure. Accordingly, the government is planning to invest THB1.8 trillion (US$50.8 billion) in 20 key priority infrastructure construction projects by 2022. The government's focus on transport infrastructure is expected to support economic growth and improve rail connectivity in the region.
- To improve the country's infrastructure, the government will offer more transport infrastructure projects under the public-private partnership (PPP) model. According to the Thailand's Ministry of Finance, 66 key projects with a combined value of THB1.6 trillion (US$46.1 billion) are in the pipeline across the country under the PPP Strategic Plan 2015–2019. Projects include the construction of high-speed rail, an urban rail transit system and toll roads in urban areas, logistics ports, intercity toll roads, educational and healthcare buildings, telecommunication and water infrastructure.
- The Airports of Thailand (AOT) is focusing on the development and modernization of airport infrastructure to support the domestic tourism industry, and cope with an expected rise in passenger, cargo and air traffic. Accordingly, the AOT announced its plans in June 2016 to invest THB200.0 billion (US$5.6 billion) to expand the country's six main international airports over the next 10 years.
- To reduce the country's reliance on imported energy, the government is focused on developing renewable energy sources, which will boost the country's electricity and power construction market and economy. Under the Alternative Energy Development Plan (AEDP), the government aims to increase the share of renewable energy in total energy production from 8.0% in 2014 to 20.0% by 2036. Accordingly, it is planning to generate 19,634.4MW of electricity through renewable sources by 2036. Investments to transform the country's energy sector are expected to support growth in the energy and utilities construction market.
