Although the world has been in the grip of a pandemic, our survey shows that the Asia-Pacific infrastructure market is set for considerable growth in the next few years with technology and ESG considerations at the heart of that expansion.
Inframation Group and Mergermarket are pleased to present Asia-Pacific Infrastructure 2021: Strong foundations in a changing world, published in association with White & Case.
Based on a survey of 100 senior-level direct equity investors and financial services firms, the report reveals that investors remain extremely bullish over the long-term fundamentals of the Asia-Pacific infrastructure sector, with four clear trends emerging:
New frontiers: Investors see APAC as a land of opportunity. More than half of respondents cited ‘wealth of opportunity’ as the greatest benefit to investing in the region.
Growth plans: Despite concerns regarding aspects such as construction and delivery risk and political scrutiny, the outlook from respondents is overwhelmingly positive—78 per cent of firms intend to grow their teams in the region in 2021.
Social surges: Mirroring the findings from our previous report, roads are once again seen as the key infrastructure sector destination. The most eye-catching trend is the significantly increased focus on social infrastructure, with 58 per cent of firms intending to invest.
Responsibility reigns: An increasing need for sustainable infrastructure management caused 60 per cent of respondents to cite environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations as ‘very important’ when looking at their investment in the region.
