The Future of Construction in Japan to 2015: Reconstruction Efforts to Ignite Growth
The infrastructure market has its own limitations in the shape of an already highly developed rail, road, air and port network. Moreover, there has been a decline in the industrial construction market primarily due to Japanâ€™s market leading position as a reputed manufacturing hub coming under threat from emerging economies such as China and South Korea.
The onset of the economic crisis further exacerbated weak market conditions leading the Japanese construction industry to record a CARC of -2.86% during the review period (2006â€“2010).
Following a period of economic recovery in 2010, the construction industry also displayed signs of recovery. However, the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011, halted this process. More than 300,000 houses were destroyed in the disaster alongside roads, ports and energy facilities. As part of the reconstruction effort, the government announced an aid package in April 2011. Over the forecast period (2011â€“2015), the construction industry is projected to achieve a CAGR of 4.92%.
Within the Japanese construction industry, infrastructure construction was the largest market in 2010 with a share of 46.4%. In terms of growth, institutional construction was the fastest growing market over the review period with a CAGR of 5.10%. This was followed by infrastructure construction with a CAGR of 0.41%.
