Project Insight: Road Construction Projects - Asia-Pacific

GlobalData’s Construction Intelligence Center (CIC) is currently tracking road related construction projects in Asia-Pacific with a total value of US$1.297 trillion. Of this, US$727.5 billion is in the execution stage and US$303.3 billion is in the planning stage. China accounts for the highest value with US$632.2 billion, followed by India with projects valuing US$218.1 billion. Australia and Indonesia follow with road construction projects with a value of US$98.7 billion and US$71.4 billion respectively. The highest value road project and the highest value tracked globally is the US$80.0 billion Fuzhou to Taipei Highway: Taiwan Strait tunnel, which is due to start in 2020 and involves the construction of a 126km undersea expressway tunnel from Fuzhou to Taipei in China.

The rate of expansion in Asia-Pacific has necessitated expenditure on new transport infrastructure, and according to PwC, the region will need to spend US$5.36 trillion on infrastructure annually by 2025, representing nearly 60% of the world’s total. Asia-Pacific is the largest transport infrastructure market, with PwC expecting investments increasing from US$557bn to nearly US$900bn per year in 2025. Massive population increases and urbanization in the Asia-Pacific have put a strain on transport infrastructure, with countries such as Indonesia, India and China experiencing a shift of population from rural to urban areas. In the last 30 years, the urban population of China rose by 500 million, while in Indonesia over 50% of the population now lives in cities.
