The South Korean construction industry is expected to contract by 1.4% this year, following a 1.4% decline in 2020. This compares to an earlier projection of a 0.5% growth. The downward revision is primarily the result of the increase in Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection rates, a decline in construction output in the first three quarters of 2021, and the disruption to building activity. According to the Korean Statistical Information Service (KOSIS), the construction industry's value add declined by 0.9% year on year (YoY) in real terms in the third quarter of 2021, following a decline of 3.4% in the second quarter and growth of 3.2% in the first. The industry is expected to recover in 2022, growing by 4.1% in real terms, supported by the significant expenditure outlined in the proposed 2022 Budget, and the implementation of planned energy projects. Downside risks to the outlook include the uncertain impact that the Omicron variant will have on the South Korean and the global economy. No cases of the new variant have yet been confirmed in South Korea, but its economy's reliance on export-driven growth will expose it to downturns in global economic activity.

In August 2021, the government announced an investment of KRW216.7 trillion (US$197 billion) in health, welfare and employment, KRW83.2 trillion (US$75.6 billion) in education, KRW30.4 trillion (US$27.6 billion) in industry, small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and energy, KRW29.8 trillion (US$27.1 billion) in research and development, KRW27.5 trillion (US$25 billion) in social overhead capital (SOC), KRW11.9 trillion (US$10.8 billion) in environment and KRW8.8 trillion (US$8 billion) in culture, sports and tourism in its proposed budget for 2022. In July 2020, the government announced a plan to invest KRW160 trillion (US$135.7 billion) in the 'Korean New Deal' programme between 2020 and 2025, including investments in renewable energy, electric vehicles, 5G, big data and artificial intelligence. Fiscal investment on the Korean New Deal was expanded in July of this year, to reach KRW220 trillion (US$198.6 billion).

Over the remainder of the forecast period, the industry is expected to record an annual average growth of 4% between 2021 and 2024. In February 2021, the government announced a plan to build 830,000 houses across the country over the next four years, with 323,000 new houses being built in Seoul and 293,000 in nearby Gyeonggi Province and Incheon. The government's goal of becoming a global hub for vaccine production and distribution is also expected to drive growth during the forecast period.
