The report provides a detailed look into the infrastructure sector in the Philippines, including analysis of the state of the current infrastructure, the regulatory and financing landscapes and the major projects in the construction pipeline.

The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.

Infrastructure construction spending in the Philippines is set to grow at a relatively fast pace over the forecast period (2016–2020).

The total value of the infrastructure construction market reached PHP563.8 billion (US$12.4 billion) in 2015, according to the Infrastructure Intelligence Center (IIC) – up from PHP350.5 billion (US$7.8 billion) in 2010 – and will rise to PHP1.1 trillion (US$23.9 billion) in 2020 (in nominal value terms).

This growth in spending is based on the assumption that a number of the large-scale infrastructure projects move ahead as planned, including the Manila Bay Integrated Flood Control, Coastal Defense and Expressway, and the New Sangley Point International Airport.

Key Highlights
Timetric is currently tracking 269 large-scale infrastructure construction projects in the Philippines, at all stages of development from announcement to execution. These projects have a total investment value of PHP139.2 billion (US$3.2 billion).

The electricity and power sector accounts for the largest share of the project pipeline, with a total project value of PHP73.3 billion. This is followed by railways, with a pipeline value of PHP21.8 billion.

When its current infrastructure is compared to the other regional peers (Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam) through the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report, the Philippines scores lower in terms of overall quality.

The administration of President Rodrigo Duterte has expressed its commitment to deliver better infrastructure to support the economy’s growth and improve opportunities for citizens. In August 2016, the Department for Budget and Management (DBM) earmarked a total of PHP860.7 billion (US$17.8 billion) for infrastructure projects in 2017 – 11.6% higher than the budget for 2016 – and the equivalent of 5.4% of gross domestic product (GDP).
