03 Jul 2012 • by Natalie Aster

Infrastructure construction was the largest market in the Philippine construction industry in 2010, accounting for 36.9% of the total industry value. The infrastructure construction market recorded a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.91% during the review period (2006–2010), which was supported by the State-of-the-Nation Address (SONA) infrastructure projects that were mostly completed by the end of 2010. The energy and communication infrastructure category is expected to be the major growth driver of infrastructure construction over the forecast period, due to the Transmission Development Plan (TDP) initiated by National Transmission Corporation. This project is expected to be complete by 2015 and involves investments to construct additional transmission infrastructure and to develop existing transmission infrastructure.

The expanding Filipino population created a surge in demand for housing, especially multi-family housing, which led to a housing backlog of 6 million in the country. With rapid urbanization, the housing dynamics of the country are registering a gradual change. In larger towns like Manila, an increase in the demand for multi-family housing is being observed, as it is a cheaper option compared to single-family housing. The new report «Construction in the Philippines – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2015» by Timetric states that the residential construction market is estimated to achieve a CAGR of 8.19% over the forecast period (2012–2016).
