New Market Report: Philippines Infrastructure Report Q2 2016

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

The positive outlook for Philippines' construction sector is supported by growth in public construction activity as the government's Public-Private Partnership programme gains traction, as well as sustained momentum in private construction activity. The upcoming elections in 2016 will weigh on construction activity.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

Our outlook for the Philippines construction industry remains positive and we forecast real growth of 8.5% and 8.7% in 2016 and 2017 respectively.

We expect a relatively stable monetary policy to provide a favourable environment for potential homeowners and developers. This is reflected in our forecast, which expects the residential and non-residential building industry to expand at an average annual pace of 8.3% between 2016 and 2025 (compared to 6.4% for the transport sector and 7.9% for the energy & utilities sector).

We believe positive momentum in the approval of projects under the Philippines's PPP programme will continue over the months leading up to the presidential elections in mid-2016. Our longer-term outlook remains tempered by upcoming elections and project implementation deficiencies, but plans to introduce a new public-private partnership bill bode well for further private investments.

Risk/Reward Index

The Philippines fell by one place to the 14 th position out of 17 regional markets assessed in our latest Asia RRI (RRI). The country's overall score fell to 53.1 out of 100 due to growing external risk in the region.

With the upcoming elections in 2016, the Philippines is likely to see a slight weakening of its Country Risks score over the coming quarters.

Continued progress on the government's PPP programme and persistent growth rates in the worsening external environment indicates further upside potential to the country's rewards profile.
