BMI View:
We maintain our growth forecast for South Korea's construction sector and expect the energy and utilities sub-sector to provide support amid weak growth in other sectors. High levels of household debt will further cap demand for residential property, which will continue to face headwinds from the slowdown in South Korea's main trade partners.

Forecast And Industry Developments


- We maintain our forecast for South Korea's construction sector to expand 1.3% in 2017 amid a low interest rate environment and weak growth.

- We expect the government continue to invest in nuclear power as it seeks to take advantage of nuclear power's cost competitiveness compared to other power technologies. This will enable the South Korean authorities to boost energy security and reduce the country's reliance on fuel imports. Accordingly this will provide support for the energy and utilities sector, which we forecast to grow strongly from 2017-2025 as more nuclear plants are developed as part of the government's commitment to meeting the country's future electricity demand.

- The construction sector will expand as the run-up to the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics continues to lend support to the sector. However, weak long-term growth in the residential sector and the continued contraction of the non-residential sector will continue to undermine longer-term growth in South Korea's overall building industry.
