Growth in South Korea’s construction industry continued to accelerate in 2016, with output growth in real terms of 10.5%, measured at a constant 2010 US dollar exchange rate. This follows annual growth of 3.0% in 2013, 0.8% in 2014 and 5.7% in 2015. Growth during the review period (2012-2016) has been supported by a recovery in economic conditions and government investment in major transport infrastructure, residential buildings and energy and utilities projects. According to the Ministry of Strategy and Finance, the government invested KRW124.0 trillion (US$108.6 billion) on 167 transport infrastructure projects during 2013-2015.

Over the forecast period (2017-2021), the industry is expected to continue to grow, driven by investments in public infrastructure, energy, commercial and industrial projects, and improvements in consumer and investor confidence. Moreover, a rise in building permits for the construction of residential and non-residential buildings in the country is expected to support the industry’s growth over the forecast period.

The government’s focus on developing transport infrastructure, as well as efforts to boost energy production, particularly renewables, is expected to drive funding towards the construction industry over the forecast period. In June 2017, the government announced plans to invest KRW42.0 trillion (US$36.6 billion) on the renewable energy infrastructure, with an aim to eliminate coal power plants by 2020.

The industry’s output value in real terms increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.93% during the review period, and is expected to post a CAGR of 3.99% over the forecast period.

  • The energy and utility construction market is expected to be supported by the government’s plan to provide high speed internet connection to all citizens. To support economic development and growth, the government plans to provide a 5G connection to 90.0% of the population by 2025.
  • In July 2017, the government announced plans to increase natural gas’ share in electricity production from 19.0% in 2016 to 27.0% by 2030. Consequently, it plans to build a new exploration well and other related infrastructure under the public-private partnership (PPP) model by 2030. Additionally, the government aims to generate 7.0% of the country’s total energy needs through renewable sources by 2020.
  • The government increased the industrial building permits by 4.8%, going from 21,229 units in 2015 to 22,258 in 2016. Moreover, it increased by 3.9% during the first half of 2017, rising from 11,108 units in January-June 2016 to 11,538 units in January-June 2017. This is expected to drive the growth of industrial construction market over the forecast period.
