The Port Construction industry has been one of the fastest growing in the Australian economy since the late 2000s, reflecting the importance of servicing the ever-growing volumes of bulk, container and general cargos. The industry has also derived substantial impetus from the development and expansion of port facilities for the mining and energy sector. However, the winding back of investment into the Mining division since the 2012-13 peak is expected to have contributed to a sharp decline in port construction activity.
Companies in the Port Construction industry construct, refurbish and alter ports and port amenities, including terminal infrastructure. Repair and maintenance activities are excluded from the industry.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
