Construction activity in Brazil was weak during the review period (2011–2015) following the economic recession, which resulted in a deteriorating business environment, weak investor confidence and a reduction in construction activity.
Consequently, the industry’s output value in real terms contracted at a compound annual growth rate of -0.32% during the review period.
The industry is expected to remain subdued over the forecast period (2016–2020), albeit with a slight improvement. The probable persistence of the economic recession until 2017 is expected to hamper the industry’s growth during 2016–2017.
The industry, however, is expected to recover and record minimal growth from 2018, supported by a gradual recovery in economic conditions and subsequent improvements in investor and consumer confidence.
Government efforts to revitalize economic growth through the implementation of flagship programs such as ‘My House, My Life’, the Logistics Investment Program, Plano Decenal de Energia 2024 (PDE 2024) and the National Education Plan 2014–2024 are expected to support the industry’s growth over the forecast period.
