In real terms, the Chilean construction industry registered a growth rate of 2.8% in 2015. This was preceded by an annual growth rate of 1.6% in 2014, 3.2% in 2013, 7.0% in 2012 and 6.8% in 2011. Economic recovery, coupled with government investments in infrastructure, and residential construction, increased issuance of building permits and greater total surface area for construction contributed to growth. In addition, reconstruction projects after the catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in 2010 supported industry growth during the review period (2011–2015).

The country’s construction industry will continue to expand in real terms over the forecast period (2016–2020) due to investments in transport infrastructure, energy and utilities, and affordable housing projects.

The government plans to invest CLP18.9 trillion (US$28.0 billion) under the Infrastructure Master Plan to develop the country’s infrastructure by 2021. Under the infrastructure plan, CLP2.0 trillion (US$3.0 billion) will be invested to develop Chile’s submarine fiber optic network between Aysén and Magallanes, and construct 20 wastewater treatment plants in the northern region by 2021.

In real terms, the Chilean construction industry is expected to increase from a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.64% during the review period to 4.29% over the forecast period.

Over the forecast period, the government’s plan to increase internet penetration to support economic growth and development is expected to drive growth in the energy and utilities construction market.

In May 2016, the government announced that it planned to build 25,000 new houses under the Nuevo Programa de Integración Social y Territorial, the New Social Integration and Territorial Program by 2020.

Under this plan, the government aims to renovate and redesign existing terminals of Arturo Merino Benítez airport, and build 175,000m2 new terminals with 37 aircraft stands by 2020.

- The government’s commitment to provide quality service in healthcare and quality education is expected to support the institutional construction market over the forecast period.
