Synopsis
Construction activity in Australia was weak in 2015, mainly reflecting the downturn in the mining sector. The country’s construction industry contracted by 4.0% in real terms that year and output value measured at constant 2010 US dollar exchange rates fell from US$190.6 billion in 2014 to US$182.9 billion in 2015.

Over the forecast period (2016–2020), the industry is expected to remain sluggish, owing to weakness in the industrial sector (which includes mining-related construction works). However, there will be a pick up in infrastructure investment, which will contribute to positive annual growth towards the end of the forecast period.

In real terms, the industry is expected to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -1.55% over the forecast period, down from 2.65% during the review period (2011–2015). The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to decline from US$182.9 billion in 2015 to US$169.2 billion in 2020, measured at constant 2010 US dollar exchange rates.

Despite a slowdown in the mining sector and the cancellation of various oil and gas projects, the infrastructure, commercial and institutional construction markets are expected to support the industry’s output over the forecast period. This is a result of a rise in government spending on the education and healthcare sectors, and retail sales growth. In addition, various infrastructure development programs such as the Investment Road and Rail Program, the Black Spot Program, the Roads to Recovery Program and the National Highway Upgrade Program will support the Australian construction industry.

Key Highlights
• According to the latest Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) data on new building, there has been clear evidence of an expansion in residential and non-residential construction. The total number of dwelling units approved by the government in the country grew by 13.8% from 208,230 units in 2014 to 236,904 units in 2015. Of the total dwelling units, 233,207 units were taken by the private sector, while 3,697 units were taken by the public sector.

• The government’s plan to provide affordable houses across the country to the low- and middle-income groups is expected to drive growth in the residential construction market over the forecast period. In January 2016, the New South Wales Government announced the 10-year reform program, through which it plans to build 23,000 new social houses through the public-private partnership (PPP) model by 2026.

• The Australian government aims to develop the rail network across the country to improve mobility of goods and citizens and support economic growth. In 2014, the government launched the Inland Rail Project with an investment of AUD10.7 billion (US$8.1 billion). The government plans to build 1,711km of railway track between Melbourne and Brisbane by 2025.

• The Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure (DTPLI) and Public Transport Victoria are focusing on improving the transport network in Victoria to reduce road traffic congestion and support economic growth. With an investment of AUD1.3 billion (US$979.8 million), the Victorian government is upgrading the CityLink Tullamarine corridor from the West Gate Freeway to Melbourne Airport under the CityLink Tulla Widening project.

• The industrial construction market is expected to be impacted by the declining mining industry. The mining industry’s production has fallen due to rapid drop in prices of commodities such as coal, uranium and gas, which has stemmed in part from weak commodity demand from China and emerging countries. The deployment of renewable energy worldwide has also impacted the country’s mining industry.
