Construction in New Zealand - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (H1 2021)

New Zealand’s construction industry recorded an annual average growth rate of 6.6% between 2016-2019. Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the industry contracted by 7.3% in real terms in 2020. The lockdown restrictions imposed by the government in the first half of the year and the resultant economic uncertainty and weakness severely impacted activity in the industry. The downturn was further exacerbated by delays in project implementation and the re-allocation of part of the government’s budget towards its management of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The analyst expects the construction industry to recover in 2021, growing by 5.5% in real terms. To support both the wider economy and the construction industry, the government announced plans to fund large shovel-ready infrastructure projects in March 2020. Accordingly, in early April 2020, the government announced the formation of the Infrastructure Industry Reference Group (IIRG), comprising a group of industry leaders, and tasked them with identifying public, as well as private sector shovel-ready infrastructure projects with a value of NZD10 million (US$5.8 million) or above. As of the end of January 2021, the government has approved projects worth NZD4.7 billion (US$2.7 billion) for the IIRG.

The industry is expected to register an average annual growth of 3.5% between 2022 and 2025, supported by investments in residential, transport, institutional and renewable energy projects. As part of the COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund (CRRF), in May 2020 the government allocated NZD3 billion (US$1.7 billion) to fund infrastructure projects across the country. In addition, growth will also be supported by an investment of NZD12 billion (US$7 billion) to build and upgrade road, rail, school and hospital projects under the New Zealand Upgrade Programme.
