China to experience sharp decline in construction output
Due to the severe impact of COVID-19, construction output growth in China is expected to grow by just 1.9% in 2020. The disruption in the first quarter of 2020, when the outbreak was at its peak and the lockdown was widely enforced, is illustrated by the 17.5% year on year decline in construction activity during that period. Total investment in real estate development was also down by 7.7%, and private fixed asset investment declined by 18.8%. The government will accelerate the disbursement of funds for infrastructure, which will be a recovery step for the construction activities in the coming quarters, says GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company. Danny Richards, Lead Economist at GlobalData, comments: “The construction work on major commercial projects in key cities has been greatly affected. The disruption caused by the epidemic is likely to be prolonged in the leisure and hospitality buildings sector, reflecting the likely downturn in both domestic and foreign tourism, which could reduce investment in new hotel projects. The residential sector is facing a high risk of a sharp downturn with major developers recording sharp drops in new sales.” Richards adds: “Although underlying drivers of growth include ongoing urbanisation and the government’s efforts to renovate aging urban residential buildings, years of high levels of investment in real estate have resulted in oversupply, undermining the demand for new space. In January – March 2020, real estate investment in residential buildings had dropped by 7.2% year on year, with the sharpest drop being recorded in the central region, at -16.9%.” GlobalData expects that the state council will issue guidelines on increasing investment in various types of infrastructure, notably railways, roads, waterways and airports in the second half of 2020 while local authorities are likely to be ramp up the issuance of special bonds to finance major infrastructure projects. Richards concludes: “China is also set to boost investment in ‘new’ infrastructure to support the economic recovery and the acceleration in digital transformation, and notably, this will include investment in 5G networks and data centres.” /WorldCement

Global construction output expected to contract by 1.4% in 2020
As a result of the severe economic shock caused by the lockdown measures imposed by governments around the world to contain the spread of COVID-19, global construction output is expected to contract by 1.4% in 2020, according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company. Danny Richards, Lead Economist at GlobalData, comments: “Although the construction industry has, in some cases, been exempt from restrictions on business activity, few major markets will manage to record an increase in construction output in 2020.” Before the COVID-19 outbreak, the global construction industry had been expected to grow by 3.1%. This was initially revised down to just 0.5% in late March based on a review of the impact of COVID-19 at that point in time. However, in view of the rapidly evolving nature of the pandemic and the more drastic measures being taken to contain the spread, GlobalData has further adjusted the outlook for the 91 countries covered. Richards continues: “In the short term, there is a high risk of projects in execution being halted because of lockdowns, a lack of materials, and other supply chain disruption. Projects at pre-construction stages will be severely delayed, given likely disruption in processing building permits, tendering, and awarding contracts.” Based on the latest updates of mega projects being tracked by GlobalData, global construction momentum has slowed considerably – GlobalData’s Global Construction Projects Momentum Index (CPMI) score (adjusted) dropped to 0.39, from 0.46 in Q4 2019. The unadjusted score plummeted to a low of 0.22, reflecting the severity of the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on construction projects. Richards adds: “Given the extent to which the crisis intensified across the world in March, with many major markets in effect shutting down, the Global CPMI score dropped into negative territory, falling to - 0.05.” /Wolrld Cement

Demand down as production partially resumes in India
India: Both Germany-based HeidelbergCement and Aditya Birla subsidiary UltraTech have responded to the government’s partial lifting of the coronavirus lockdown for rurally-located continuous industries by resuming ‘partial operations in some production facilities.’ Orient Cement subsidiary CK Birla said, “We are in the process of partially resuming our operations at our plants in Karnataka and Maharashtra.” Producers require the permission of the relevant state government to restart plants. In Telangana, where the government has not lifted the lockdown, CK Birla’s facilities remain shut. The Economic Times newspaper has reported that ‘limited transportation facilities, higher than usual inventory and stricter rules regarding labour safety’ have added a note of caution to resumed operations. Shree Cement managing director Hari Mohan Bangur said, given the continuation of restrictions on construction in cities, “We expect just 10% of normal consumption, with hopes of a gradual increase.” /Global Cement
