Pakistan Infrastructure Report 2015 - New Market Research Report

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Dec 29 2014

Our outlook for Pakistan's construction sector remains largely subdued for 2015 and beyond. Domestic political uncertainty is undermining confidence in the market, and ongoing security risks continue to deter foreign investors. High levels of government debt and rising inflation are restricting public spending, and while many infrastructure projects are planned or underway, these continue to suffer from escalating costs and delays.

Pakistan's infrastructure network, starting as it does from a low base, does offer enormous long term potential. The country benefits from a strong regional location, good relations with powerhouse China and a large potential labour pool. If it is able to secure political stability and address corruption at high levels in order to create a more attractive investment environment we may see further growth in Pakistan's construction sector in the future, at present though, our forecasts for growth are limited.

* Pakistan's Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) has again delayed the deadline for prequalification applications to build the 2,160MW Dasu Stage 1 hydroelectric project on the Indus River. Interested parties can now submit applications by February 27 2015.
* China has agreed to invest USD45.6bn via Chinese banks and investment firms in a range of energy and infrastructure projects in Pakistan. In a separate project China has also agreed to invest USD1bn in residential infrastructure projects.
* Overall, we expect Pakistan's construction sector to slow in 2015, reflecting a year-on-year growth rate of 3.8%. Similar growth is forecast for the remainder of the forecast period, with industry value expected to reach USD9.7bn in 2024, up from USD6.1bn in 2015.
