This is followed by Chile with 309 projects (US$117.1 billion); Peru with 230 projects (US$83.1 billion) and Mexico with 209 projects (US$98 billion). Colombia and Argentina also have a large number of projects, with 114 (US$66.8 billion) and 92 (US$58 billion) each.

Investment in infrastructure is at the core of discussion for the development of Latin America. During the CAF Conference: Infrastructure for the Integration of Latin America, which took place in Madrid in July 2018, ministers of economy, finance and planning, representatives of the private sector and experts from Latin America and Spain analyzed and identified opportunities for infrastructure development in Latin America over the next decade amounting to US$4.5 trillion, in strategic sectors such as roads, ports, airports, telecommunications, energy, water and sewerage.
A combination of favorable demographic trends and the implementation of a number of legislative reforms throughout the region are generating a wide range of infrastructure investment opportunities for investors. It is projected that the total value of infrastructure spending will reach US$142.5 billion in 2019 and US$175.8 billion in 2020, based on the current pipeline of 1,711 large-scale projects with a combined value of US$829.2 billion. This includes all projects from announcement stage to execution. Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru are set to drive overall investment between 2018 and 2022 with an expected annual average spend of US$36.3bn, US$17bn, US$13bn and US$12.4bn respectively.
The electricity and power sector has the highest value of projects in the pipeline, with US$381.9 billion, while rail projects valued at US$204.3 billion account for the second largest sector. Roads recorded the third-largest share, with US$129.3 billion; followed by airport and other projects with US$91.7 billion and water and sewerage projects with US$22.1 billion.
In addition, of the total infrastructure construction pipeline, 56% of projects by value are in the pre-planning and planning stages, while 44% are in the pre-execution and execution stages. Moreover, the public sector is expected to directly finance 40% of the total value of projects while a mix of public and private sources will finance 33% of the total value. The remaining 28% will be financed by private sector, the majority of which are electricity and power projects.
