CIC - Construction Intelligence Center

Top 10 Markets to Watch in 2017

  • Published:Thursday, March 09, 2017

In this White Paper, the Construction Intelligence Center assesses the risk and opportunities outlook for 10 key advanced and emerging markets in 2017 and beyond.

The US and the UK are featured, with both having improving underlying fundamentals, but being subject to much uncertainty over how the political situations in both countries will affect the construction industries. Also included in the list are the relatively high growth-high risk markets of Vietnam and Indonesia. 


All four of the BRIC countries are included. India will post the fastest growth over the next four years among these large emerging markets, while Brazil will remain the laggard. China will remain by far the largest market, but the pace of growth is slowing, with the oversupply of real estate being a concern. The prospects for growth in Russia, meanwhile, have been greatly undermined by Western sanctions and sustained weakness in oil prices. 


Also included are Saudi Arabia and Colombia, two markets that had held great growth potential, but whose expansion has also been greatly hampered by the decline in oil prices.
