Peru to Lead the Market Growth

  • Peru is expected to witness the highest CAGR in the region during the forecast period. The country represents the fifth-largest South American country in terms of the nominal GDP.
  • The business environment is favorable to investors, and the Peruvian construction market is expected to follow a high-performance trajectory. Several new construction projects have been announced by the Peruvian government, and this is expected to increase the construction rate in the country. This includes an amount of USD 2.8 billion proposed by the government to develop hospitals, public works, etc. This scenario is expected to propel the demand for paints and coatings in the country in the next few years. 
  • The country is currently in dire need of various infrastructure projects to meet the rapidly growing demand for both public and private infrastructure, such as roads, ports, telecommunications, airports, health, water and sewage, education, and energy. In order to cover Peru’s general infrastructure needs by 2025, the government is expected to invest a total of USD 160 billion, involving annual investment of 8.3% of its total GDP, for the coming nine consecutive years. 
  • In terms of the total housing demand, the Ministry of Housing, Construction, and Sanitation (MVCS) estimated the total housing deficit in Peru to be over two million homes. In addition to this deficit, the country needs to renovate over 1.5 million houses to reduce the housing infrastructure gap. 
  • Hence, from the above-mentioned factors, the construction and infrastructure sectors in Peru are expected to witness massive growth over the coming years, and this is expected to rapidly increase the demand for paints and coatings.
