Key highlights

Construction activity in Japan has increased since 2012, according to data on the value of contracts by orders with civil engineering works, showing a slightly faster rate of expansion than buildings. The number of housing starts has also risen since early 2010. While the rise in activity indicates improvements in the industry, there are concerns over the impact this will have on material and labor prices.
The country’s Fourth Science and Technology Basic Plan, introduced in 2011, aims to spend JPY25 trillion (US$313.3 billion) over 2011–2015. The plan addresses societal challenges and sets out priorities, such as reconstruction and revival following the 2011 natural disaster. In 2013, total science and technology expenditure, including planned spending and a stimulus package, reached JPY4.6 trillion (US$57 billion). The JPY76.7 billion (US$958 million) stimulus package was allocated to the upgrade of research facilities. Increased government spending is expected to enhance the research facilities category, which will, in turn, support the institutional construction market over the forecast period.
The introduction of new economic reforms has improved business confidence in the country. In order to pump the money into the financial system, the Bank of Japan (BOJ) purchased government bonds and other securities. According to the BOJ, since April 2013, JPY4.4 trillion (US$546.3 billion) has been supplied into the country’s economic system, boosting business sentiments to a peak since 2007. In 2013, direct commercial transactions reached JPY3.3 trillion (US$41.7 billion), a 67% increase over 2012. This renewed business confidence and financial stimulus will support the growth of the commercial market over the forecast period.
After coming to power in 2012, the government announced an emergency stimulus package of JPY10 trillion (US$110 billion) in January 2013, with a primary focus on public work infrastructure. Public work subsidies increased to JPY5.3 trillion (US$0.1 trillion) in 2013. The package focuses on reconstruction projects including repairs and the construction of earthquake-resistant roads, bridges and tunnels.

A brokerage unit, Daiwa Real Estate Asset Management, plans to establish a healthcare real estate investment trust (REIT).

Construction in France - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2018

The French construction industry( registered a low growth of 1.5% in 2009 and declined by 4.2% in 2010, following the eurozone crisis. The country’s export-oriented manufacturing sector’s reduced investment, alongside a decline in employment and low wage growth, led to a steady decline in domestic economic activity and demand for new construction projects. Supply has been hampered as developers are wary of the economic situation and have postponed new projects until conditions improve. Consequently, the industry again recorded a decline of 2.8% in 2013. Due to a recovery in business confidence, the industry is anticipated to regain momentum over the forecast period (2014?2018), with growth expected at a moderate CAGR of 1.47%.
