Construction in Russia - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023


Following a negative growth in 2017, construction activities in Russia picked up sharply in 2018, with the start of work on the liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects providing a spurt, along with work related to host the 2018 Fifa World Cup. As a result, the countrys construction industry grew by 4.7% in real terms in 2018, compared to -1.2% in 2017. The government invested RUB904.6 billion (US$14 billion) on the development of hotels, transport facilities and other related infrastructure in 11 cities of the country to host the 2018 Fifa World Cup.

The industry is expected to continue to grow over the forecast period (2019-2023), supported by the governments effort to revitalize economic growth through investments in residential, transport and energy infrastructure projects. Under the National Projects 2019-2021, the government plans to spend RUB5.7 trillion (US$88.2 billion) on the development of transport, healthcare, education and housing infrastructure during the period of 2019-2021.

In real terms, the industrys output value is expected to post a forecast-period CAGR of 2.54% in 2023.
