Construction in Vietnam - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2024


The Vietnam construction industry was growing at a relative fast pace prior to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, with the industry expanding by 9.1% in real terms in 2019. Growth had been driven by investments on the national strategic projects, mainly in the transport infrastructure sector. However, the imposition of Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) by the government to contain the spread of COVID-19, along with global trade and travel disruptions which affected the availability of manpower and raw materials, weighed on growth in Vietnam’s construction industry in the first half of 2020. Consequently, GlobalData expects the industry’s growth to decelerate to 5.5% in real terms this year, which is a relatively strong performance compared to other markets in the region.
According to the General Statistics Office (GSO), the construction industry’s value-add grew by 5.7% year on year (YoY) in real terms in the third quarter of 2020 (the latest data available at the time of writing), improving from 4.7% and 4.4% in the previous two quarters, respectively. In the coming quarters, the construction industry’s output growth will continue to pick up, supported by investments in transport and energy infrastructure.
Efforts to attract foreign investment through the public private partnerships (PPP) model will support the construction industry over the forecast period. In June 2020, the national assembly adopted the law on PPP investment, which is aimed at regulating investment activities and attracting private investment under the PPP model. The government’s efforts to balance supply and demand for affordable housing will also generate momentum in the residential sector. Ongoing urbanization will continue to generate demand for residential and infrastructure development.

The Vietnamese construction industry recorded a CAGR of 19.00% between 2008 and 2012 to value VND699.5 trillion (US$33.6 billion). However, Vietnam’s economy has undergone an extended period of insubstantial expansion, due to decelerated growth in the real estate sector, a banking system characterized by non-performing loans (NPLs) and a property market slump. This is reflected in the construction industry’s growth which slowed from 19.7% in 2011 to 6.5% in 2012.

Based on the assumption that the banking sector avoids a crisis and the government manages to rebuild growth momentum with carefully targeted stimulus measures and investment in large scale infrastructure development projects, outlook for the industry is positive The Vietnamese construction industry is expected to record a CAGR of 11.96% over the next five years and value VND1231 trillion (US$59.1 billion) in 2017.

Infrastructure construction was the largest construction market in Vietnam in 2012, valuing VND385.5 trillion (US$13.7 billion). The market recorded a CAGR of 22.01% between 2008 and 2012. Rising in transportation costs, delays in the transport of goods and services and limited access to a large domestic rural market are reducing industry competitiveness and undermining economic growth. The government has announced transport, road and energy infrastructure projects. Energy in particular is set to receive substantial government funding under the Power Master Plan-7.

The residential construction market in Vietnam valued VND276.9 trillion (US$13.3 billion) in 2012. A property slump following the global financial crisis and a banking system struggling with an increasing share of non-performing loans (NPLs) has lead to a situation of rising real estate inventory, falling property prices and many large residential construction projects being put on hold due to difficulties in obtaining credit. The residential construction market is projected to record a CAGR of 11.58% over the next 5 years and value VND478.8 trillion (US$23.0 billion) in 2017.
