Analysis of the development of the global construction industry

Infrastructure investment is critical for the most advanced economies and countries in the early stages of development. For developing economies, infrastructure such as the construction of roads and the installation of reliable electricity will have a transformative impact on citizens' lives and business prospects. In more mature economies, keeping up with demand and building new and upgraded infrastructure is also the key to sustaining economic growth.

The construction industry not only has a direct impact on the global economy but also has important links with other industries, which means that its impact on GDP and economic development far exceeds the direct contribution of construction activities. The improvement of infrastructure promotes GDP growth, and the availability of infrastructure can increase productivity and promote competition and cooperation.

The construction industry has more than 100 million jobs worldwide, accounting for 6% of global GDP. The added value of the construction industry accounts for about 5% of GDP in developed countries, and 8% of GDP in developing economies. It is expected that there will be a large amount of infrastructure demand in the next two decades. By 2040, global infrastructure investment is estimated at 3.7 trillion US dollars per year. It should be considered that the Americas and Africa have the largest infrastructure investment gap compared with other regions.
