 In real terms, the Malaysian construction industry registered an average annual growth rate of 10.7% during the review period (2011-2015). This growth was supported by the 10th Malaysia Plan 2011-2015, under which the government invested heavily in infrastructure, industrial parks and residential buildings. In 2010, the government relaxed policies for public-private partnerships (PPPs) with an aim to develop the country’s infrastructure. Consequently, total private investment in infrastructure projects increased from 52.0% of the total infrastructure spending in 2010 to 64.0% in 2014.

According to the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM), the total construction value of civil engineering increased by 11.9% from MYR32.7 billion (US$10.0 billion) in 2014 to MYR36.6 billion (US$9.4 billion) in 2015. This was preceded by annual growth rates of 1.2%, 14.5%, 54.1% and 16.3% in 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011 respectively.

Over the forecast period (2016-2020), the Malaysian construction industry is expected to continue to expand in real terms, supported by the government’s plan to improve the country’s transport network and tourism infrastructure, and increase the volume of renewable projects.

Moreover, government efforts to address the country’s housing shortage will help the industry to grow over the next five years. However, low oil prices are expected to impact the government’s capability to invest in major infrastructure projects. According to the Malaysian government, every US$1.0 drop in crude oil prices reduces the country’s total annual revenue by MYR300.0 million (US$76.8 million).

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.98% over the forecast period, down from 12.11% during the review period.
