Construction in Hong Kong – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Get Sample Copy of This Report @


Hong Kongs construction industry suffered a downturn in 2017 and 2018 in real terms, in part due to reduced investments in transport infrastructure projects and the completion of major railway projects. However, the industrys overall performance during the review period (2014-2018) remained positive, supported by government and private sector investment across residential, energy and utilities, commercial and institutional construction projects.

The industrys output value is expected to pick up pace over the forecast period (2019-2023), with investments in public infrastructure, energy, commercial and industrial projects, and improvements in consumer and investor confidence. Programs such as the 10-year housing program, 10-year hospital development plan and new power development plan 2019-2023 – through which the government aims to develop the countrys residential, institutional and energy infrastructure – will support the industrys growth over the forecast period.

There are, however, risks associated with Hong Kongs construction industry outlook. The ongoing trade war between China and the US is expected to impact Hong Kongs economy, which could have an adverse impact on construction spending. The US governments imposition of a tax on Chinese goods is expected to impact Hong Kongs small and medium-sized enterprises, which in turn is expected to decrease investment in industrial construction. Furthermore, volatility in Hong Kongs stock market, a decline in wage growth and weakness in asset prices are expected to hamper the growth of the residential construction market over the forecast period.

The industrys output value in real terms recorded a review-period compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.51%, and is expected to post a forecast-period CAGR of 2.49%.

Under the Railway Development Strategy (RDS), the government plans to provide easy access to the railway station to 70.0% of the population by 2021. Moreover, the government plans to increase the share of railways in the countrys total public transport from 40.0% in 2017 to 43.0% by 2021. Accordingly, the government plans to develop North Island Line and South Island Line (West) of the country with an investment of HKD110.0 billion (US$14.2 billion) by 2031.

– Forecast-period growth in the energy and utilities construction market will be driven by the governments plan to increase the countrys power generation capacity to meet rising electricity demand. In July 2018, the government launched a new power development plan for the period of 2019-2023. Under this, the government plans to build two new gas fired power plants and a new offshore liquefied natural gas terminal in the country by 2023; this will increase the countrys energy generation capacity by 2023.

– GlobalData expects the institutional construction market to grow over the forecast period, though at slower rate compared to the review period, driven by the governments focus on the education and healthcare sectors.

In FY2018-2019, the government increased its total spending on education sector by 28.4%, going from HKD88.5 billion (US$11.4 billion) in FY2017-2018 to HKD113.7 billion (US$14.5 billion). Moreover, in February 2018, the government allocated HKD2.0 billion (US$255.2 million) for the countrys education sector.
