Growth during the review period (2014-2018) was driven by positive developments in regional economic conditions and government investment in residential, transport and energy infrastructure.
The government total spending on infrastructure grew by 49.7% in the first eleven months of 2018, compared to the same period in 2017. It increased from PHP486.5 billion (US$9.7 billion) in January-November 2017 to PHP728.1 billion (US$13.8 billion) in January-November 2018. The industry's output value is expected to continue to expand in real terms over the forecast period (2019-2023), driven by the government's plans to upgrade the country's transport infrastructure. In addition, public and private sector investments in residential, commercial and educational infrastructure construction projects are expected to support growth in the industry over the forecast period.
