Construction sector sees growth due to emerging markets

This increase is largely due to the industrial production growth and increased commodity and oil prices.

The report finds that domestic demand is the key factor driving industrial production, with the emerging markets and developing economies leading the recovery in commodity exports and industrial production.

Asia-Pacific has the highest value of projects with US$1.13 trillion, while India has the highest value of global project investment with a value of US$376.7 billion.

However, the highest value project tracked by CIC is the US$30.0 billion Nanjing Semiconductor Manufacturing Plant in China.

The highest value of projects worth US$1.06 trillion are at the planning stage. The highest value of projects will be underway in 2019 with a value of US$542.5 billion.

The highest value of completions for the projects will occur in 2020, with a value of US$614.4 billion.
