Fast Market Research recommends "Brazil Infrastructure Report Q1 2015" from Business Monitor International, now available


Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2015 -- Brazil's construction sector saw an overall contraction in 2014, as the industry suffered from a subdued domestic economy, an uncertain political environment in the run up to the Presidential elections in October 2014 and a drop - off in demand in the wake of the FIFA World Cup. Moving forward, the scale of projects in the pipeline mean s we are forecasting more positive growth in 2015 and beyond, al though we note that over the longer term, this growth is largely unsustainable.

Brazil has instigated a substantial infrastructure investment programme under Programa de Acelera??o do Crescimento (PAC) which is due to enter its third phase in 2015. The country has also set up a USD235bn concessions programme between 2015 and 2018 which will see a large number of construction projects across the transport network taking place. Although the potential investment is substantial, these concessions have been subject to extensive delays and legal hurdles, and the funding of the programme is uncertain. A large volume of energy and utilities projects are also in the pipeline, contributing to our long-term growth forecasts however Brazil continues to struggle to attract foreign investment and fundamental issues in the country's business environment will continue to undermine the growth potential in the construction sector.
