Infrastructure is an important driver for the growth of economy of any region. Electricity, roads, water systems, public utilities, airports, railways, and telecommunications are essential services that drive the economic activity, by channelizing trade and mobility. 

Growing urbanization in developing countries will help boost the infrastructure in sectors such as transport and power. Economic prosperity will channel finances towards manufacturing and transportation sectors, which primarily provide and distribute raw materials for the manufacture of consumer goods.

Increased spending on infrastructure has a multiplier effect on the overall economic growth, as it demands industrial growth and manufacturing. This, in turn, boosts the collective demand, by improving living conditions.

According to research, the current infrastructure spending at the global level is USD 4.3 trillion. 


A lot of emphasis has been laid on connecting institutional investors (banks, development banks, insurance companies, pension funds, hedge funds, REITs, endowments, mutual funds and a few others) with projects that need the investors’ capital, as well as creating an expanded role for public-private partnerships. However, a majority of infrastructure will most likely continue to be financed by the public and corporate sectors.

Technological innovations are changing the very nature of infrastructure investing, as well as the promptness and efficiency of the investments.
