Following a contraction in 2013 owing to economic recession and subsequent low investments, the Mexican construction industry rebounded moderately during 2014-2016, registering an average annual growth rate of 1.7% in real terms. This growth was supported by gradual recovery in economic conditions and improvements in domestic consumption.
However, Timetric expects Mexico's construction industry to experience a slowdown during the early part of the forecast period (2017-2021) in real terms, as the economy is expected to face risks due to falling oil prices. A decline in revenues from the oil sector is expected to affect the government's ability to invest in infrastructure development. On the back of a gloomy economic environment, the government is expected to cut down its public expenditure, which is in turn expected to restrain the flow of investments in construction projects.
However, the industry is expected to gain gradual pace in the later part of the forecast period, supported by the government's effort to promote economic growth by focusing on the development of the country's overall infrastructure. Accordingly, the government aims to boost the implementation of infrastructure projects through the collaboration of the public and private sectors. The industry's output value in real terms is expected to record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.20% over the forecast period, up from -0.24% during the review period (2012-2016).

According to Timetric, the infrastructure construction market is expected to maintain its leading share in the industry over the forecast period, to account for 27.2% of the industry's total value in 2021.
• In a bid to promote economic growth, in September 2017 the government announced plans to develop three special economic zones (SEZs) in the southern states of the country. Through the creation of these SEZs, the government aims to attract investments from various sectors, including processing, agribusiness, manufacturing, technological innovation and development and logistics. Accordingly, the government has identified 95 potential projects with investments worth MXN113.5 billion (US$5.3 billion) that could be developed in these SEZs by 2020.
• In order to achieve its target of generating 35% of its total energy from renewable sources by 2024, in September 2016 the Mexican Ministry of Energy launched the second renewable energy auction. Under the auction, the Energy Ministry issued tenders for the development of 36 solar and wind energy projects in the country, with a total installed capacity of 2.9GW. Accordingly, companies will invest MXN74.7 billion (US$4.0 billion) to develop various solar and wind energy projects in the country by 2019. According to Timetric, the energy and utilities construction market is expected to post a nominal forecast-period CAGR of 7.98%, as compared to 2.25% registered during the review period.
• In February 2017, the government signed a contract with ALTaN Redes for the implementation of the country's Shared Network Broadband project. With a total investment of MXN149.9 billion (US$7.0 billion) until 2025, the project includes the development of 4G internet networks across the country.
• Amid economic uncertainty, the government is focusing on boosting the role of the private sector in the country's infrastructure development.
