Ecuador's construction industry growth will slow drastic ally over the next five years as the country faces the widest budget deficit in decades . Attracting and securing private investment will be vital to main taining infrastructure development , given that oil prices will remain low, leading to falling government's revenue and reduced public spending.

Key Trends And Developments

We believe Ecuador's infrastructure industry growth is highly unsustainable as it relies heavily on revenue from oil exports. As such, we forecast a moderation in the pace of growth in the short-to-medium term.

Falling oil prices will have a detrimental impact on the government's capacity to spend in infrastructure development, particularly for projects in the planning stage. Our Oil & Gas team forecasts Brent to average USD59/bbl in 2015 and USD61/bbl in 2016.

While strong demand for infrastructure had boosted prospects for Ecuador's construction industry over the medium term, weaknesses in the country's business environment will continue to present risks and cap growth. Chief among these will be financing.

Despite significant improvements, Ecuador's competitiveness is still weakened by its transport infrastructure. The roads, railways and ports, which are crucial to supporting the country's oil industry, need vast amounts of investment.

Ecuador is one of the largest oil producers in Latin America. However, like many Latin American countries, it relies more on hydropower than oil for its electricity generation. In this context, we note significant activity in the hydropower infrastructure sector, with strong Chinese support.

Political risk will continue to be a cause for concern for investors, with anti-democratic nuances and populist policies at odds with attracting international investment in infrastructure.
