Growth Forecast for Indonesian Construction Market

Population growth, rapid urbanisation and an increase in disposable incomes, are expected to propel the value of Indonesia's construction market from USD102,64 billion to USD 136,26 billion by 2021.

Ambitious deadlines and increased green building standards make efficient building management central in Indonesia, according to the latest Construction Technologies in Indonesia industry report prepared by TechSci Research for Konstruksi Indonesia and The Big 5 Construct Indonesia 2017.


Growing population, rapid urbanization, and increased disposable income are credited by the report as propelling a rise in construction market value from USD102,64bn in 2017 to USD 136,26bn by 2021, thereby exhibiting a CAGR of 7,34%, in value terms, during 2017-2021.


As well as presenting a variety of upcoming projects that will take advantage of increased market performance, the report highlights key building technologies and standards that are developing within the boom.


Listed projects include the national toll road project, national railway projects, and ventures in the energy and waste management sectors. Benefiting from the excelling market, these construction projects come hand in hand with tight deadlines; one of which is the five-year plan to construct 1 million houses across the country.


According to the report, the adoption of new building technologies is essential for the country to manage these tight deadlines. BIM Modelling is currently the most promising of such; being implemented in the Gran Rubina Complex project in Jakarta to help managers in achieving another trend in the industry - sustainable and green construction standards.


Green standards have been steadily growing in popularity in Indonesia since 2015 when the Indonesian government announced plans to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by 29% by the end 2020. Green building regulation was signed by the Bandung government in 2016, and green building points are now awarded by the Green Building Council Indonesia.


“The use of building technologies and green, sustainable performance products in the construction market, will become greatly popular on the back of mounting projects and building standards in Indonesia,” says Portfolio Exhibitions Director of The Big 5 Construct Indonesia, Andy Pert. He goes on to mentor that “constant industry specific education is the first response to the ever changing nature of innovation.”

The third edition of the event will feature an energized variety of certified, free to attend CPD (Continued Professional Development) workshops set to address industry professional interests including; BIM (Building Information Modelling) adoption in the Indonesian construction market under the theme project management, green and sustainable construction trends in the sector.
