BMI Industry View

BMI View : Peru's construction industry experienced strong growth in the first nine months of 2013, a trend that follows on a remarkable 15.1% real growth in 2012. As a result, we now estimate the industry to grow by 8.1 % in 2014 and an average of 7.4% real growth in the next five years. Our forecast is supported by a robust project pipeline, a growing tourism industry, and high value investment plans to bridge Peru's infrastructure gap, with particular emphasis on the transport sector. However, a deteriorating business environment and severe delay s in the awarding of tenders continue to pose a downside risk to our forecast.

  • Considerable investment is being ploughed into Peru's mining sector, putting pressure on the country's existing infrastructure and creating huge demand for new capacity. Mining is typically both electricity- and water-intensive; this is placing a strain on existing infrastructure, which in turn is threatening mining...
