New Market Research Report: Japan Infrastructure Report Q3 2011

New Construction market report from Business Monitor International: "Japan Infrastructure Report Q3 2011"

 
PRLog - July 5, 2011 - BMI View: Reconstruction efforts in the aftermath of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami will propel Japan's infrastructure and construction industry activity, following nearly two decades of stagnation and recession. We have revised up our forecasts for infrastructure and non-residential and residential construction industry value in Japan. However, we question - highlighting concerns that lend downside risk to our forecasts - how the Japanese government will fund the reconstruction, and ask, what are the implications for long-term public spending on infrastructure?

The implications of the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami, and subsequent Fukushima nuclear accident, are wide ranging and will impact the entire infrastructure industry in a plethora of ways:

*  The government revised the national energy strategy in May 2011 to downscale the role nuclear power will play in the energy mix. Instead, it will increase the focus on natural gas in the medium term and renewables in the long term. This will lead to major revisions in the capex plans of major utilities like Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) and Chubu, which have investment plans and expertise that are geared towards nuclear power.
 *  The Fukushima accident is prompting many Japanese companies to return to the domestic infrastructure market. In recent years many of these companies have sought to export construction and engineering expertise abroad, in search of higher growth rates, particularly in emerging markets. Several companies have been withdrawing from international tenders to focus their resources on reconstruction in Japan.
 *  Japan's nuclear expertise was a crucial export sector, with the Japanese utilities and nuclear technology providers actively seeking new contracts across the globe. The creation of the International Nuclear Energy Development of Japan in 2010 highlighted the long-term shift to overseas markets. It now remains to be seen what the impact of the Fukushima accident will have on on the wider perceptions of Japanese nuclear technology. Domestically, with the public's mistrust of nuclear power politicising the nuclear debate, we anticipate that the Japanese nuclear sector will experience sluggish activity in the coming years, certainly at home (with the new energy strategy) and most likely overseas.
 *  We have revised up our growth forecasts for 2011, 2012 and 2013 for infrastructure and residential and non-residential construction. Overall the estimated cost of reconstruction is close to US$300bn, the largest ever reconstruction cost in the aftermath of a natural disaster.
