Brazil Construction Market Analysis

Brazil’s construction market is expected to register a CAGR of approximately 8% during the forecast period. The market is driven by low-interest rates and the government's housing programs such as "Casa Verde e Amarela". Despite Brazil’s high budget deficit and weak economic conditions due to the political crisis in the country, the authorities released an infrastructure development program. The low-interest-rate environment will encourage buyers to return to the market and builders to take on new projects.

The COVID-19 pandemic interrupted the growth of the market. Although construction activity continued in most states, increased uncertainty has prompted builders to delay the launch of new projects while buyers delayed their purchase decisions. The Residential and Commercial sectors are expected to accelerate the construction industry during the forecasted period. The industry is set to witness stable growth during the forecasted period due to recovering labor market, credit growth, and favorable agenda by the government with its extensive support for privatization which will boost the state enterprises and big international players investing and allocating the funds to infrastructure development for roads, ports, and airports.

Despite strong housing demand, it is expected that the shortage of building materials and rising prices will curb investment in the housing market and the entire industry in the short term. Other factors hindering investment in the industry include high levels of bureaucracy and corruption scandals.

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Brazil Construction Market according to our research experts:

Government Initiatives for Infrastructural Development

In Brazil, the government launched an infrastructure concessions program with an aim to develop the country's port, road, railway, power transmission lines, and sanitation infrastructure. Under this plan, the government aims to invest BRL 45.0 billion (USD 14.1 billion) through the public-private partnership (PPP) model. Furthermore, government programs such as Minha Casa Minha Vida (MCMV), Plano Decenal de Expansao de Energia 2026, and the National Education Plan are expected to support industry growth over the forecast period.

The residential and commercial sectors are expected to accelerate the construction industry during the forecasted period. The future prospects for the construction sector remain bleak in comparison to other segments of the economy. It could become crucial in efforts to boost the economy in the forecasted period, as it is a very labor-intensive segment.
