Mexico’s construction industry is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2015–2019), due to government investment in energy, residential and infrastructure construction.

The government’s main areas of focus are: addressing the country’s housing shortage, developing sources of renewable energy and improving transport and tourism infrastructure.

Over the forecast period, growth will be driven by an increase in public and private sector investments, disposable income, population growth and urbanization.
