"Taiwan Infrastructure Report Q2 2015" now available at Fast Market Research

Over our long-term forecast period to 2023, Taiwan's construction industry will accelerate at a modest pace, despite a very slight slow in growth in 2015, on the back of investment uncertainty due to national elections, weakening external demand and falling house prices. Our overall outlook for the economy and construction remains positive, however, due to a relatively conducive monetary environment for construction, changes in the country's energy policy and the government's desire to improve transport links.

Key Trends And Developments

* After the KMT lost key local elections in November 2014, President Ma Ying-jeou stepped down as party chairman and doubts will now be raised as to whether the KMT will be able to stay in power in 2016. This will in turn entail strong risks of a reversal in the warm cross-strait ties that Ma has built up since 2008, consequently altering the country's economic trajectory. China is unlikely to push through with any major policies as it would be left unsure if Ma's successor would honour the agreements. Investors could therefore wait for greater political clarity before taking on new construction projects. Furthermore, most governments typically put on hold key decisions on large-scale infrastructure projects (such as project awards and approvals) until major elections are concluded.
* The Ministry of Economic Affairs announced in August 2014 that pre-operational tests at Lungmen Nuclear Power Plant's unit 1 had been completed and that the unit would be sealed in 2015. Should a public referendum prove negative for nuclear generation and policy in Taiwan, greater opportunities in the thermal and renewables sectors can be expected, as the country will need to readdress and realign its energy plan. However, we do not expect any policies or major project decisions to be made until after the national elections in 2015.
