AECOM, an American multinational engineering firm, assessed Indonesia as the fastest growing construction market compared to other Asian countries, Rappler reported on Monday.
In particular, the growth of the country’s construction industry is accounted for the government’s support, which is actively engaged in the national infrastructure development. At present, 30 infrastructure projects worth about 851 trillion Rp are scheduled to be developed until 2019.
Among these projects there is a 2,818 kilometers Trans Sumatera toll road and a 2,000 megawatt coal fired power plant in Java. Implementation of these projects will also boost sales of concrete materials and equipment.
According to the forecast, the road construction in Indonesia will see an annual grow of 12.8% in the coming years.
