DUBLIN, July 30, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Construction in China - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025 (Q2 2021)" report has been added to's offering.

China's construction industry has continued its recovery, following the severe disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic-induced lockdown in early 2020, registering growth of 3.5% in 2020; the swift recovery was due in part to the fast tracking of major infrastructure projects. According to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), the construction industry's value-add grew by 22.8% year on year (YoY) in Q1 2021, preceded by Y-o-Y growths of 6.6% in Q4, 8.1% in Q3 and 7.8% in Q2 2020.

In line with growth in construction activity, investments in real estate and fixed assets have also increased, with total investment in real estate development growing by 25.6% YoY in Q1 2021 and 7% YoY in 2020, whereas investments in fixed assets grew by 25.6% in Q1 2021 and 2.9% in 2020. In Q1 2021, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) approved 16 fixed-asset investment projects worth CNY45.4 billion (US$7.1 billion), following approvals of CNY177.8 billion (US$27.7 billion) in September 2020.

The construction industry is forecast to grow by 7.7% in 2021, driven by strong Y-o-Y growth in the first quarter, reflecting the comparison to the previous year's period when construction work was halted across most of the country. Thereafter, the construction industry is expected to record an average annual growth of 4.2% between 2022 and 2025. The industry's growth over the forecast period is expected to be driven by investments on new infrastructure, including investment in the areas of 5G networks, Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, and data centers. According to the government-backed think tank, the China Electronic Information Industry Development (CCID), the country is expected to spend CNY10 trillion (US$1.4 trillion) on new infrastructure projects between 2020 and 2025.
