10 Apr 2012 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Forecasts say South Korea’s construction industry will expand at a moderate CAGR of 4.04% to 2016 to reach a projected total of KRW 219 trillion (USD 197.1 billion). Like other South Asian nations, growth in the South Korean construction industry will be fuelled by the infrastructure sector, expected to record a CAGR of 4.81% and aided by road, rail, energy and other individual categories. Industrial construction is expected to record the second highest CAGR of 3.87% supported by the metal and material processing industries.

Due to higher material costs, the South Korean construction industry is facing intense cost pressure. As a result, cement producers are experiencing resistance from builders and construction contractors due to hikes in cement prices.
