China’s Building Sector Resilient Despite President Xi’s New Economic Policy

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, July 25, 2018 / -- The building sector in China is predicted to grow at 10.7% year on year Global Construction Market Strategies And Opportunities To 2021, a new report from The Business Research Company shows. This is despite President Xi’s call at the 2017 Communist Party Congress for the country to move from ‘a phase of rapid growth to a stage of high quality development’. Motivated by an intention of halting or reversing rising income inequalities, uneven regional development and immense environmental damage, the new emphasis may mean a slowdown in China's recent 6.9% economic growth rate. The building industry is likely to be relatively protected, however, as President Xi’s ‘high quality development’ is expected to include the provision of better homes for the 30 million Chinese who move to the towns each year.

China’s building sector was worth $3.2 trillion in 2017, having grown at 9.4% annually from 2013. Asia’s other two big markets for building construction are also expected to accelerate: from 6.1% to 8.3% in India and from 6.4% to 7.4% in Japan. In the USA, which has the next largest building market after China, worth $1.08 trillion in 2017, growth is set to remain steady at 9.7%,

The Chinese market accounted for 37.7% of the global building sector total in 2016. The market’s global worth in 2016 was $7.7 trillion and it is growing at just under 10% year on year.

During 2013-2017 China's heavy and civil engineering sector had the second highest growth rate in the world, at 10.6%; this rapid growth was mainly due to strong economic growth, rapid urbanization, increasing government spending on infrastructure, development of new cities and increasing demand for utilities, roads, transportation and other infrastructure in the country. The growth was primarily fuelled by the stimulus investment package launched by the Chinese government at the end of 2008 as a response to the global economic crisis. About CNY 600 billion were invested in highways, CNY 600 billion in railways and CNY 300 billion in subways and airports. Although slowing a little recently, to 8.8%, growth in China's heavy and civil engineering segment will continue to be among the world's fastest. Major construction activities in China are shifting from first-tier cities such as Beijing and Shanghai to second-tier cities such as Chengdu and Chongquing. However, with the Chinese government resorting to adjustments in interest rates, regulation and fixed asset investments, the construction industry is expected to be largely dependent on central government’s future plans and policies.
