NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsis
Construction activity in Mexico was weak during the first years of the review period, as the economy suffered from the recession. This prompted the government to cut its public expenditure, and weak business confidence affected investments in construction projects. However, the industry registered positive growth during 2014–2015, owing to gradual improvements in economic conditions
In real terms, the Mexican construction industry is set to perform well over the forecast period (2016–2020) compared to the review period (2011–2015). The industry's growth over the forecast period is expected to be driven by investments in infrastructure, energy and commercial construction projects. The government's flagship program – National Infrastructure Program (NIP) 2014–2018 – is expected to provide some momentum to the industry's performance over the forecast period.
According to the country's national statistics institute, the Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI), the average construction volume index rose by 2.5%, going from 98.0 in 2014 to 100.4 in 2015. During the first half of 2016, the average construction volume index grew by 2.3% compared to the same period in 2015. It increased from 96.1 in January–June 2015 to 98.3 in January–June 2016.
Industry growth will be supported by public and private sector investments in infrastructure, and energy and utilities construction projects. The government's focus on the development of transport infrastructure is expected to add pace to the industry's growth. Efforts to boost renewable energy production are expected to drive funding towards the construction industry over the forecast period
According to the INEGI, the industry's value add at 2008 prices rose by 2.6%, going from MXN4.0 trillion (US$300.9 billion) in 2014 to MXN4.1 trillion (US$258.7 billion) in 2015. This was preceded by annual changes of -4.8% and 2.0% in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
