- According to the Building and Construction Authority (BCA), which develops and regulates Singapore’s building and construction industry, total construction demand (the value of construction contracts awarded) increased from SGD30.8 billion (US$24.6 billion) in 2012 to SGD35.8 billion (US$28.6 billion) in 2013, while construction output reached SGD33.0 billion (US$26.4 billion) in the same year. Of the total value awarded in 2013, the value of contracts for the public sector was 14.8 billion (US$11.8 billion), while for the private sector it was SGD21.0 billion (US$16.8 billion).

- Singapore has become one of Asia’s leading petrochemical and refining hubs. It does not have any domestic oil reserves, and depends on crude oil imports to meet the growing demand for petrochemical products, supporting growth of the petrochemical and refining sector. The government is promoting long-term growth in its refining capacity to maintain the country’s leading position in refining and oil trading, and offers tax breaks to companies investing in the petrochemical sector. Growth in the refinery buildings category will be driven by rising demand over the forecast period, and the country’s efforts to remain competitive in the refining sector.

- According to the National Environment Agency (NEA), the amount of solid waste generated in the country increased from 7.3 million tonnes in 2012 to 7.9 million tonnes in 2013. The government aims to achieve a recycling rate of 65% by 2020, and 70% by 2030; this is likely to attract large-scale investment in the waste-processing plants category over the forecast period. In 2013, Sembcorp industries, a leading energy, water and marine group based in Singapore, announced plans to invest SGD250 million (US$200.0 million) to construct a waste-to-energy plant that will produce 140 tonnes of steam per hour from commercial and industrial waste.

- According to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), energy demand in Singapore is projected to rise from 36TWh in 2009 to 51TWh by 2035. According to the Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore (SEAS), the country’s renewable energy has potential to generate 10% of total electricity demand by 2020, without government subsidies), compared to present levels of less than 1%. For this, the country will need investment of SGD4.0 billion (US$3.2 billion) from private companies for 12 years.

- In 2013, the government announced the first half of the 2014 Government Land Sale (GLS) program, comprising eight confirmed and 15 reserve-list sites. The confirmed list includes seven private residential sites and one commercial, while the reserve list includes 13 private residential sites. Together these sites will supply 11,600 private residential units, including 2,800 EC units. The government announced the second half of the GLS program in June 2014, which will supply 10,200 residential units, including 1,500 ECs. This will support the residential construction market’s growth over the forecast period.
