Singapore’s Construction Market – What\’s New Trending for 2018 – 2021?

Pune, India, 30th April 2018: WiseGuyReports announced addition of new report, titled “Construction in Singapore, Key Trends and Opportunities to 2021”.


In real terms, Singapore’s construction industry registered positive growth during the review period (2012–2016). Despite a slowdown in growth due to the impact of the global financial crisis, the industry registered a modest performance, supported by government efforts to stabilize the economy, industrial activity, and public sector investments in residential projects. The industry’s output value in real terms rose at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.75% during the review period.




Industry growth over the forecast period (2017–2021) is expected to slow, posting a CAGR of 2.06% in real terms. This can be attributed to the impact of economic slowdown in China, Singapore’s largest trade partner.

In addition, the probable withdrawal of the US as a member of the Trans-Pacific Partnership as proposed by president-elect Donald Trump will affect Singapore’s economic performance.

Growth in the industry will be driven by public sector investments in transport infrastructure projects, the expansion of the manufacturing sector, and positive developments in the tourism sector.

Key Highlights

• According to the Singapore Department of Statistics, the number of building permits granted to private residential property developers declined by 35.7% from 8,454 in 2014 to 5,438 in 2015. During the first half of 2016, the number of building permits fell by 19.9%, as compared to the same period in 2015. This demonstrates the impact of weak economic conditions on private sector investments.

According to the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore, the total worth of construction contracts is expected to value between SGD26.0 billion (US$18.9 billion) and SGD35.0 billion (US$25.6 billion) during 2017–2018, and between SGD26.0 billion (US$18.9 billion) and SGD37.0 billion (US$26.9 billion) during 2019–2020.

• In a bid to promote economic growth, in December 2014 the government launched the Government Land Sales (GLS) program, under which it releases land for various commercial, industrial and residential developments. As a part of the GLS program, in December 2016 the government announced plans for developments to be undertaken during the first half of 2017. Accordingly, it announced its intent to supply 158,080m2 of gross floor area for commercial development, with a particular emphasis on office buildings in Woodlands Square and Beach Road.

• In April 2016, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore initiated the construction of the first phase of mega-port terminal in Tuas. For a total investment of SGD2.4 billion (US$1.8 billion), the project includes the construction of a giant wharf structure consisting of 222 caissons.

• The government is focusing on implementing public housing schemes in a bid to enable the low- and middle-class population to acquire their own homes. Accordingly, under the Build-To-Order plan, the Housing & Development board (HDB) is building affordable flats. In December 2016, the HDB announced plans to launch 17,000 flats in 2017.
