Canada Construction Market/Industry Report 2022: An Annual Growth of 6.1% in Real Terms in 2021 with an Expected Annual Average Growth Rate of 2.2% from 2023 to 2026 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

·4 min read

DUBLIN, May 20, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Canada Construction Market Size, Trends and Forecasts by Sector - Commercial, Industrial, Infrastructure, Energy and Utilities, Institutional and Residential Market Analysis, 2022-2026" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The construction industry in Canada registered an annual growth of 6.1% in real terms in 2021, compared to a decline of 2% in 2020

Last year, the industry's output was supported by an improvement in residential building construction and civil engineering activities, which registered annual growth of 13% and 1.8%, respectively. Additionally, progress in the country's vaccination drive, an increase in household incomes and a recovery in the global economy also supported the industry's growth in 2021.

The publisher expects the Canadian construction industry to expand by 4% in real terms this year, as strong building permit data has underpinned strong growth in 2022. According to Statistics Canada, the value of building permits rose by 8.3% in 2021, with the value of residential buildings rising by 9.1% and that of non-residential buildings rising by 6.8% last year.

The industry's output will be supported by investments in residential, transport, housing and oil and gas projects. In January 2022, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) reported that capital spending in the country's oil and gas sector is expected to rise by 22% and reach CAD32.8 billion ($26.1 billion) in 2022.

However, the rise in construction material prices, labour shortages and the recent hike in interest rates could pose a downside risk to the industry's outlook in the initial part of the forecast period. According to Statistics Canada, the residential building construction price index rose by 18.1% in 2021, while that of non-residential buildings rose by 6.9% in the same year.

The industry is expected to register an annual average growth of 2.2% from 2023 to 2026, supported by public project growth as longer-term investment plans come to fruition such as the government's three-year 'Growth Plan', which was announced in October 2020. It includes an investment of CAD10 billion ($7.5 billion) on clean energy projects, broadband projects, building retrofitting, agriculture irrigation projects and electric buses and charging infrastructure.

This plan is a part of the government's wider long-term infrastructure plan known as the 'Investing in Canada Plan'; it was launched in 2016 and involves an investment of CAD188 billion ($141.8 billion) over a period of 12 years. As of February 2022, over 78,000 projects worth CAD118.5 billion ($95.7 billion) had been approved, with 98% of them completed or underway.
