While the Colombian construction industry registered growth in real terms of 3.7% and 4.1% in 2015 and 2016 respectively, the country’s construction industry is expected to experience a slowdown in output value during the early part of the forecast period (2017-2021). This reflects both weak economic activity and uncertainty generated by ongoing corruption investigations. Weak oil prices and political instability in the wake of the upcoming presidential election in 2018 are also expected to adversely affect the growth of the construction industry in the early part of the forecast period.Although the probable weak performance of the oil and mining sector is expected to hamper growth throughout 2017-2018, the construction industry’s value is expected to improve in the latter part of the forecast period. Nevertheless, the pace of growth will remain slow, averaging 2.8% a year in real terms during 2018-2021.
Government investment in airport, railway lines, roads, bridges and tunnels under the Fourth Generation (4G) program is expected to drive the growth of the industry over the forecast period.
