"France Infrastructure Report Q1 2016" is now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Thu Feb 04 2016

Our outlook for the French infrastructure sector remains subdued in 2015 and 2016 . A weak domestic economic environment and ongoing policy and regulatory uncertainty are undermining investor confidence and we expect to see limited gains in terms of fixed capital formation. Overall , we expect to see construction industry value contract in 2015 by 1. 5 % , before returning to minimal growth in 2016.

Key Trends And Developments

Weaknesses in France's labour market - both in terms of unemployment and lack of competitiveness - support our negative outlook on the country's construction industry.

The outlook for the housing market remains bleak, as economic uncertainty and stubborn unemployment rates prevent a recovery in the demand for housing. However, we have slightly reduced the y-o-y contraction forecast for 2015 this quarter and very slightly increased growth for the sector past 2015 on the back of a small recuperation in housing permit authorisations.

Transport infrastructure remains the strongest sector in France's construction market, with annual average growth of 3.0% expected throughout the forecast period to 2024. Railway projects attract the majority of the investment in the sector.

France's energy sector remains subdued and will lose market share to the more vibrant transport infrastructure sector throughout our forecast period to 2024. We are however increasingly optimistic on opportunities within the solar and wind power sectors on the back of improved regulatory clarity, strong government support and ambitious targets for non-hydropower renewable, as highlighted by our Power and Renewables team. This presents upside risks to our forecast over the coming quarters based on industry uptake and confidence towards financing the sector.
