The Myanmar construction industry increased in value during the review period (2007–2011). This growth was supported by the country’s political stability, increasing number of investment opportunities in energy and public infrastructure projects, and rapid inflow of foreign direct investment (FDI) from Vietnam, Thailand, China, Singapore and Malaysia. Construction industry growth is expected to remain strong over the forecast period, driven by the government’s increasing expenditure on improving Myanmar’s public infrastructure, and the rising interest of domestic and foreign real estate developers on constructing residential units to meet the population’s huge housing demand.

Key highlights
  • After the implementation of democratic reform in 2011, the government increased its oversight on several industries including education, healthcare and agriculture. As such, Myanmar’s education and healthcare industries received a higher budget allocation in 2012 than in 2011.
  • Myanmar’s serious infrastructure deficiencies are posing a fundamental challenge to the country’s economic growth, with the CIA ranking Myanmar 101st in the world in terms of infrastructure quality and estimating that, of the country’s 27,000 kilometers of roads, only 3,200 kilometers are paved.
  • Infrastructure construction is expected to achieve the fastest growth over the forecast period, as the government of Myanmar is now prioritizing infrastructure development to support the country’s economic growth.
  • Foreign investments in infrastructure development in Myanmar will be significant, as the country will continue to receive substantial financial support from the Chinese government.
