New Market Research Report: Canada Infrastructure Report Q3 2011

Recently published research from Business Monitor International, "Canada Infrastructure Report Q3 2011", is now available at Fast Market Research

 
PRLog - Jul. 18, 2011 - The onstruction industry in Canada has continued its trend of outperformance this quarter, buoyed by a  particularly healthy PPP sector. The level of PPP involvement is considered world leading and we expect  this to have a positive effect on baseline indicators. Already figures for 2010 have been revised up on the  first nine months data showing a 5.2% real growth in the construction industry. For 2011 real year-onyear  growth (y-o-y) of 4.1% is forecast vauling ithe industry atUS$92.5bn. Growth is expected to  continue until the end of the forecast period in 2015 when industry value will be US$110.2bn  Key growth drivers in our forecast include:  The continuing high level of PPP activity in Canada's healthcare sector in particular, coupled with the size  of recent contracts awarded, illustrate the attractiveness of PPPs and also reflect country's relative  strength in this area compared to its peers. As a result we expect to see continued opportunities for  companies with a well-established history of PPPs in the sector.  In October 2010, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), the country's largest pension  manager, announced it was purchasing a US$876mn stake in a major highway, increasing its  infrastructure investment portfolio, despite a period of uncertainty in terms of equity returns. The  purchase will give the company a 10% share in the 407 Express Toll Route in Greater Toronto. CPPIB is  rated number one in the world for private equity investors and helps to secure the company's prominent  position.  A slew of hydropower projects announcements in the last quarter added confidence to the sector.  Amongst these a new CAD6.2bn (US$6.1bn) hydropower project is likely to change the landscape of  electricity politics in eastern Canada. The project will break the province of Newfoundland and  Labrador's reliance on Quebec, currently the hydro powerhouse of Canada.  We continue to believe that the Canadian economy is due a slowdown going into 2011, in part because of  a slowdown in the crucial US export market, but also because Canadian consumers are set to relent  following a credit binge. For 2011, we are maintaining our 2.4% growth forecast for now. Our overall  view, which we have held since the recovery began, is that Canada is better positioned for growth than  the US, and these growth figures reflect that performance differential, with the US set to expand by 2.6%  in 2010 and just 1.6% in 2011.
