The government also plans to develop the tourism sector and reconstruct earthquake damages.

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.75% over the forecast period, compared to 0.61% during the review period (2013-2017).

Key Highlights
- GlobalData expects the infrastructure construction market to retain its leading position over the forecast period, and account for 28.2% of the industry’s total value in 2022.

The government also plans to invest MXN132.6 billion (US$7.0 billion) through public private partnership to develop and maintain toll free roads.
- Forecast-period growth in the energy and utilities construction market will be driven by the government’s plan to increase the share of renewable energy in terms of total energy mix, and encourage investment in renewable energy infrastructure projects.

Moreover, in July 2018, Apple Leisure Group announced plans to invest an estimated MXN19.1 billion (US$1.0 billion) in building six new hotels and resorts in Quintana Roo, which will add 2,000 rooms to the tourism sector by 2020-2021.
