The South Korean construction industry registered growth of 10.1% and 7.1% in real terms in 2016 and 2017 respectively, following average annual growth of 3.1% during 2013-2015. This increase can be attributed to improvements in business confidence and consumer demand, as well as public and private sector investment in commercial, residential and infrastructure construction projects, leading to an increase in demand for the South Korean construction industry. Additionally, construction related to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games supported the industry’s overall growth during 2016-2017.
The industry is expected to expand over the forecast period (2018-2022), albeit at a much slower pace. The industry’s expansion is expected to be supported by the government’s efforts to enhance commercial, energy and utilities infrastructure. In addition, the government’s aim to improve the transport network is expected to support investments in infrastructure projects, which will in turn fuel growth in the industry.

Market growth over the forecast period is expected to be supported by government efforts to construct affordable houses for the country’s low- and middle-income populations. The government plans to develop 1.0 million affordable housing units by 2022.
- GlobalData expects the infrastructure construction market output to record a forecast-period CAGR of 2.01% in nominal terms, supported by public and private sector investments in the development and modernization of the country’s transport infrastructure. In March 2018, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation announced a plan to increase the share of the rail network to the total freight transport from 5% in 2017 to 10% in 2021. Consequently, regular investments are expected in the maintenance and expansion of transport infrastructure.
- In December 2017, the South Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE) unveiled the 8th Basic Plan for Long-term Electricity Supply and Demand 2017-2031 (8th BPE).

Consequently, public and private sector investments in power infrastructure development to meet the government’s targets will drive the energy and utilities construction market’s growth over the forecast period.
