Brazil Infrastructure Market Analysis

The infrastructure sector in Brazil is expected to register a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

  • In Brazil, the COVID-19 pandemic has not impacted all organizations and industries equally. Some industries performed well despite the pandemic, while others suffered due to restrictions and labor shortages. In addition, the healthcare sector recorded growth in the country, while telecommunications, media, and entertainment witnessed slight growth. The infrastructure sector is recovering as the manufacturing, transportation, and other sectors started full-fledged operations.
  • In 2021, an 18-month engagement program was planned between the Global Infrastructure Hub (GI Hub) and the Brazilian government to attract more private sector investment into infrastructure and bring further bankable projects. In addition, between 2020 and 2022, the Brazilian government planned to bring more than USD 44 billion in infrastructure projects to auction and seek private participation in successful projects that meet Brazil's sustainability and resilience objectives.
  • In 2022, the country received more than half of South America's total incoming foreign direct investments, with the United States as one of the significant supporters. In addition, the initiation of new developments and upcoming auctions in the energy and transportation sectors in the country may fuel new partnerships with investors worldwide.

Brazil Infrastructure Market Trends

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

Increasing Investments in Infrastructure Sector

Brazil's infrastructure is booming with increasing foreign investors' confidence in the investment climate. This growth is constantly driven by the country's transportation infrastructure sector, which is the foundation of growth for the country. The transportation sector witnessed continuous growth in 2022. In addition, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, in 2021, more than 53% of financial proposals were received by Brazil's infrastructure sector. In 2022, the investment momentum continued with an increased pipeline of projects, such as 26 airport auctions, nine highway auctions, four railway auctions, and 22 port auctions, in addition to the Paraná Highway, which may generate more than USD 8.6 billion in investment.

The Brazilian government introduced some reforms in recent years, which helped decrease the cost of doing business in Brazil by more than USD 77 billion. These reforms include the Sanitation Law, which ended restrictions on private sector investments for sanitary projects, and the New Highway Concession Design, which strengthened the risk-sharing and incentives framework for highway development projects. In addition, in 2021, these successful reforms paved the way for long-term benefits for international investors. The government continuously recognizes the importance of creating an environment to attract foreign investors.

Meanwhile, Brazil's energy sector is gaining traction among foreign investors, as the country is the world's ninth-largest power consumer and producer. In Brazil, more than 84% of the energy is produced from renewables, which is one of the cleanest electrical matrices in the world. As per industry experts, more than 98% of new investments are expected in the renewable power sector by 2050. However, in 2021, as per the Brazilian Association of Infrastructure and Base Industries, investments in infrastructure reached more than USD 28 billion. Thus, the growing investments may drive the infrastructure sector in the country.

Social Infrastructure is Witnessing Significant Growth

The education and healthcare sectors are experiencing significant growth after the pandemic. In 2022, the education sector received increasing funding and investments. A global school group, Inspired Education, announced the acquisition of Escola Eleva Global Schools in Brazil and a new investment of EUR 1 billion (USD 1.06 billion) to support the continued growth and expansion. Meanwhile, in March 2022, Vasta Platform Limited planned to invest in Educbank through its subsidiary Somos Sistemas de Ensino SA. Educbank is the first financial ecosystem intended to expand access to quality education in Brazil.

In May 2022, the World Bank approved more than USD 250 million for the Recovering Learning Losses From COVID-19 Pandemic in Brazil project. This project supports the educational system in the country by implementing innovative programs and systems to strengthen education management in primary and lower secondary schools in the North and Northeast region of the country.

However, the healthcare sector also experienced lucrative growth driven by the pandemic. In July 2021, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) signed a Private Sector Investment Finance (PSIF) Loan Agreement with Itaú Unibanco SA, a Brazilian private financial institution, to provide financing of USD 150 million. This funding was utilized to modernize and enhance Brazil's healthcare sector by improving private hospitals' capacity and the supply capacity of medical equipment and pharmaceutical companies. Thus, the increased funding in the healthcare and education sectors is driving the overall social infrastructure sector. According to the National Health Confederation, in 2022, more than 7,191 hospitals were operating in Brazil, the highest number reported during the period.

Brazil Infrastructure Market News

September 2022: Andrade Gutierrez, Volvo, and ACR developed an unprecedented project in the infrastructure and automobile sectors in Brazil. These companies developed Truck 4.ZERO, an innovative prototype for operation in the areas of heavy construction and mining. This dump truck is different from other unmanned equipment currently available in the market, as it combines a high-tech steering system with integrated mechanics connected to the intelligent network. In addition, in the operator's cabin, the controller can command the equipment from 2 km away through a joystick-activated radio control.

February 2022: Grupo Cobra (a construction engineering company) secured approval for a 1.2 GW LNG-to-power plant by the State Foundation for Environmental Protection (Fepam) of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil. This project requires an investment of more than BRL 6 billion (USD 1.2 billion). It was initially awarded to Grupo Bolonesi in a federal auction in 2014. The company had until January 2019 to develop the plant, but it failed to meet the deadline and lost the grant offered by the ANEEL.
