Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/25/2014 -- The Brazilian construction industry registered a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.31% during the review period (2009-2013). Growth was supported by private and public investments in infrastructure, residential and commercial construction projects. The government's Growth Acceleration Plan (the Programa de Aceleracao do Crescimento - PAC) also supported the growth. Industry growth is expected to continue over the forecast period (2014-2018) as a result of the government's commitment to making infrastructural improvements, the hosting of the Olympic Games in 2016, improved investor sentiment, and an anticipated recovery in the global economy. Consequently, industry output is expected to record a forecast-period CAGR of 9.60%.

- According to the country's national statistical office, the Instituto Brasileiro de Geografia e Estatistica (IBGE), the construction industry's value add at constant prices rose by 1.6%, from BRL52.6 billion (US$26.9 billion) in 2012 to BRL53.4 billion (US$24.5 billion) in 2013, driven by government investments to improve the quality of the country's infrastructure, and construct affordable homes to meet rising demand in the country. Government spending under the PAC rose from BRL513.0 billion (US$259.7 billion) for 2007-2010 to BRL958.9 billion (US$526.0 billion) for 2011-2014.
- Brazil's infrastructure construction market will be supported by large-scale investment in the construction industry, due to the nation's hosting of the 2016 Olympic Games, which will require stadiums, transport infrastructure, accommodation, hotels, retail buildings and healthcare facilities. The games forced the Brazilian government to prioritize infrastructure development as a key area of investment, to enable the country to handle the expected volume of tourists. Consequently, host cities and regions are investing considerably in the modernization of public transport systems, and airport construction. To prepare for the games, BRL21.5 billion (US$11.0 billion) is planned to be spent on stadiums, roads, rail, water, sewage, and energy and communications infrastructure.
- Brazil is currently facing a housing shortage. Despite the construction of a large number of housing units, the country recorded a housing deficit of 6-8 million in 2012. One solution is to provide low-cost housing; to meet demand from the country's lower- and middle-income groups, the government has started to develop affordable housing projects across the country. The Government of Goias is planning to develop low-income apartments in Luziania, which involves the construction of 3,000 apartments, roads, drainage systems and other facilities. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2015 with an anticipated investment of BRL218.0 million (US$100.0 million).
- The Government of Bahia (GoB) is planning to undertake the construction of a regional airport on a 929ha area in Ilheus, which involves the construction of two 3,000m runways, terminals and signal towers, and the installation of security systems. Total investment for this project will be BRL322.9 million (US$135 million), and it is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2016.
- In 2010, the Brazilian government launched PAC-2 to improve the energy and transport network, and housing and water infrastructure in the country. The government proposed to invest BRL1.6 trillion (US$872.3 billion) in infrastructure construction projects, with BRL958.9 billion (US$526.0 billion) spent over the 2011-2014, and BRL631.6 billion (US$346.4 billion) from 2014 onwards.
