Indonesia Leads Asia to Global Development in Construction Market
According to Asia Construction Outlook 2014, Asian countries have been in the lead in being the fastest pacing countries in the world when it comes to industrialization and construction. Jakarta, Indonesia is forecast to have the highest potential in terms of growth and development.
Despite the slow development, the warnings of downfall and the great fluctuations of global economy, Asian countries have remained strong and have maintained their growth and development. The reason for this is said to be because of the demands of urbanization within their walls.
Indonesia emerges as a particularly interesting market. Construction spending in the world's fourth-most-populous country accounted for more than a quarter of the nation's gross domestic product last year, with about half of this expenditure funding infrastructure projects. Aecom's survey also found that Jakarta is viewed as the No 1 city in the region for potential market growth and profitability.
The country’s development is already one of the main topics by analysts and economists and has been in discussion by many sectors all over the world.
According to Global Intelligence Alliance report last 2014, property industry in Indonesia is expected to grow within 2015 on rising middle class and infrastructure spending. Indonesian middle class is expected to increase to 90 million. The report also anticipates property prices to increase to 15%-20% as they respond to fuel prices, electricity prices and bank interest rates.
