In 2022, we expect global construction industry real growth will moderate relative to 2021, as markets continue to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic gradually. Growth will remain slightly above the pre-Covid-19 pandemic average over the coming years, as fiscal stimulus efforts by many governments use infrastructure investment as a way to stimulate economic recovery.
We identify the political and macroeconomic factors that could put infrastructure projects at risk and the trends driving investment opportunities across emerging and frontier markets.

Global Industries Outlook 2022 - Mid-Year Update
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has permeated across many of our global themes. The high inflation environment and subsequent cost of living crisis and rising interest rate environment in many markets has had knock-on-effects for other trends we expected to see play out. In general, while we have seen a waning economic impact from Covid-19, the Russia-Ukraine crisis has prevented full economic normalisation globally, impacting growth across several industries.

Middle East & Africa Infrastructure Insight (July 2021)
