Argentina Infrastructure Report Q3 2016 - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Jun 21 2016

In the medium-long term, Argentina's infrastructure sector should enjoy increased private investment amid an improving business environment in light of new president Mauricio Macri's pro-business stance . Meanwhile, Chinese and Russian backing of major projects, particularly in the energy and rail sectors, continues, but may face greater domestic and international competition as the market begins to open. However, the short term will be characterised by transition, after years of market, policy and operational volatility.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

As expected, new president Mauricio Macri has already begun to implement business, trade and investment friendly policies that should support the medium-long-term outlook.

However, as 2016 will be the first year of economic and policy transition, we therefore expect Argentina's economy to contract by 0.6%, before rebounding to 3.2% in 2017.

The construction industry will slow from 6.1% growth in 2015 to 1.0% in 2016, before experiencing 2.7% annual average growth between 2017 and 2025.

Chinese investment in the energy, utilities and rail sectors will remain elevated in the years ahead, accompanied by an expected uptick in foreign direct investment.

Risk/Reward Index

Argentina's Infrastructure RRI has weakened this quarter from 41.1 to 39.7, falling from 8 th to 9 th out of 15 Latin American countries in the process.

Business-friendly centre-right Mauricio Macri winning the presidential election in November is good medium to long-term news for the country's risk/reward profile in the long run.

However, the short term will be dominated by friction amid political and economic transition.
