Construction Outlook in China

http://www.reportlinker.com/p091885/Construction-Outlook-in-China.html

Construction outlook in China among world's best

The $5 trillion construction industry in China is one of the fastest growing in the world. A rapidly expanding domestic economy, continuing efforts to upgrade physical infrastructure, sustained strength in foreign investment funding, healthy demand for Chinese manufactured goods, ongoing urbanization and further population and household growth will all boost construction spending in China.

Nonbuilding construction to be fastest growing sector

Nonbuilding construction will be the fastest growing sector through 2012. Growth will be fueled by government initiatives to expand and upgrade the country's physical infrastructure, especially its highways, railways and subway systems. Utilities construction will also contribute to nonbuilding construction spending gains, as the government continues to increase the country's power generation capacity and improve electricity transmission networks, as well as expanding and improving municipal water supply coverage and natural gas distribution.

Nonresidential building represents the largest spending category in China, reflecting the nation's emergence as an economic powerhouse over the last decade and its position as the largest producer of manufactured goods in the world. China's ongoing industrialization and modernization will help to boost investment in manufacturing, office and commercial facilities.

Real residential building construction expenditures will grow at a more modest pace through 2012. Advances will be spurred by rising employment and personal income levels, further urbanization of the population, and increasing average per-capita living space in both urban and rural areas. However, government efforts to prevent the real estate market from overheating (for example, raising the one-year lending rate and restricting second home purchases) and a deceleration in household growth will provide an offsetting influence, preventing demand from advancing at a faster rate through 2012.

More Details

Government's "Go West" strategy to spur Northwest, Southwest regional growth

China consists of numerous distinct regional markets characterized by different culture, language and levels of economic development. The Northwest and Southwest regions are much poorer than other parts of the nation and remain largely underdeveloped, but are being targeted by the government's "Go West" strategy, which will result in sizable increases in infrastructure-related construction activity in these areas. Construction expenditures in the Northwest and Southwest regions are expected to enjoy the fastest growth of any region in China through 2012. However, the Central-East and Central-South regions will remain home to well over half of China's total population and will account for close to two-thirds of all economic output in 2012, stimulating substantial construction demand.
