Assessing the global transport infrastructure market: Outlook to 2025

Transport infrastructure investment is projected to increase at an average annual rate of 4.7% worldwide to 2025.

The market is ripe for private-led transport infrastructure capital projects. A positive picture of a growing market for transport infrastructure investment worldwide has many economies considering how to attract private investment.  And investors are evaluating which subsectors and regions have the most potential. 

The Australian outlook

Investment in transport infrastructure in Australia is expected to grow at an average compound annual rate of 4.9% over the next 10 years, slightly ahead of the global average.

Growth will be underpinned by our cities and interstate freight task. 

Funding sources must continue to diversify in order to deliver critical transport infrastructure and the associated economic benefits for Australia. 

The PwC and Oxford Economics 2015 report takes a look at what investors need to know about which transportation subsectors and markets are expected to grow and what factors are driving growth.
