Top 10 Markets to Watch in 2018

  • Published:Monday, February 19, 2018

In this White Paper, the Construction Intelligence Center assesses the outlook and risks for 10 key advanced and emerging markets in 2018.

In looking ahead at 2018, the CIC has selected 10 key markets to watch; these include some of the largest markets: China, which continues to grow at a fast pace while undergoing an adjustment away from investment-driven expansion; the US, with Trump’s ambitious infrastructure development plans; and India, which is regaining growth momentum.


The markets to watch also include some of the fastest growing: Turkey, which is enjoying a sustained period of growth; Qatar, which has expanded despite the regional embargoes; and Argentina, which is regaining credibility in the eyes of global investment.


There are also markets to watch that have their own specific challenges that could create some disruption in 2018; the UK, with its ongoing negotiations to exit the EU; Australia, whose construction market is set regain growth momentum despite residential weakness; Sweden, whose residential sector is going in reverse; and Iran, where construction activity is set to expand in 2018 but is subject to domestic and international political tensions
