BMI View: We forecast an average of 2.1% real growth for the six construction industries of Central America in 2016. The decline from our forecast for 2015 - 4.4% - is mainly due to a steep drop-off in Panama as it concludes expansion of the Panama Canal and a normalisation of a housing boom in Nicaragua. The region will still offer significant opportunities: the transport sector will see strong growth as development funds target regional integration and Panama will recover by 2018 as increased public spending funds a strong project pipeline.
Latest Updates And Structural Trends
  • El Salvador's construction industry is poised to benefit from an influx of capital from regional development banks and a US aid agency. We have downgraded our forecast for 2015 to a still positive, but muted 1.3%. However, we expect development agency backed projects to pick up steam in 2016 and forecast the construction industry to grow at 4.6% annually from 2016 to 2019.
  • Honduras is also gaining support from development banks and is set to end its construction industry recession in 2016. Although projects in the country have suffered from delays in the past, our optimism for the industry is supported by a number of high-value projects which have already reached financial close and are set to break ground early in 2016.
