Chile Precast Construction Market Overview - 2027

The Chile precast construction market size is expected to reach $492.1 million in 2027, from $323.0 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2020 to 2027. Precast construction involves casting and manufacturing of different building components such as girders, walls, columns & beams, paving slabs, and others in factories, away from the actual project site. Precast construction is also known as off-site construction or prefabricated construction. Further, the manufactured building parts are transported to the required project site and attached together to form a monolithic structure. The two basic construction methods conducted in precast construction are modular construction and manufactured homes. However, modular construction is more prevalent than manufactured homes as it is economical and requires low handling cost when compared to manufactured homes.

The increase in focus on sustainable buildings and energy conservation in Chile is a major driving factor for the Chile precast construction industry. According to the International Energy Agency, in 2015 the Ministry of Energy of Chile published the National Energy Policy 2050, a wide set of energy goals for the year 2035 and 2050 in response to the rapid change in Chilean and global environment. Precast construction is an effective alternative for the production of green and energy efficient buildings as compared to traditional methods. According to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), precast structures can help in saving up to 25% of heating and cooling costs in a building by the use of precast concrete and insulation. In addition, the construction energy use can also be minimized during the fabrication phase of precast construction as control of energy use and emissions is easier in factory environments. Hence, the advantages of precast construction in regard of sustainability boosts its market growth in Chile. Moreover, Chile is highly prone to earthquakes owing to its location on the tectonic plate boundary and the subduction zone, where the ocean crust slides under the continent land causing compressional deformation, known as the Peru-Chile trench. The most intensive earthquake recorded in Chile had 9.5 magnitude on 26th May 1960, and was the strongest earthquake ever recorded by modern instruments. Precast construction is an effective solution against the seismic vibrations. It involves the use of high-quality building materials as well as the offsite manufacturing of precast elements ensures adherence of building and design by-laws. Further, companies such as Sistema TENSOCRET based in Chile is focused on promotion of precast construction with high focus on earthquake resistance. Such factors promote the use of precast construction for seismic resistance applications, which drives the growth of the Chile precast construction market.

However, the unstable socio-economic conditions in Chile hinders the growth of construction and precast construction industry in the country. According to the World Bank, Chile has been one of the fastest growing economies in the Latin American region, owing to its solid macroeconomic framework. However, the social unrest has resulted in decline in the GDP from 3.9% in 2018 to 1.1% in 2019. The high living costs, and social inequality led to social protests in the end of 2019. Such complicated and unstable socio-economic conditions have curbed the pace of the country’s growth which in turn restrains the growth of Chile precast construction market. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the on-going construction projects, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in Chile. This has hampered the growth of the Chile precast construction market significantly in 2020.

Analyst Review

High demand for housing in Chile is driving the growth of residential precast construction during the forecast period. The improving precast construction technologies in manufacturing of multi-story and single-family homes is anticipated to boost the demand of precast construction in the country. Precast construction offers the flexibility of housing designs as well as offer construction in lower time spans than traditional construction. This is anticipated to assist in curbing the ever-growing housing demand in Chile.

Moreover, the increase in investments on infrastructural projects is likely to boost the demand for precast construction. According to the GRI American European LLC/GRI USA Inc., also as known as GRI Club which promotes private investments and partnerships in real estate and infrastructure sectors, the Chilean ministry of public-work (MOP) has decided to provide a strong pipeline of concessions through public-private partnership (PPP) program to attract investment into the infrastructural sector. Since 1993, a total of 98 contracts have been awarded through public private partnership (PPP) with value of more than $25.05 billion. Further, Chile has 24 finalized projects and 74 ongoing projects within which the MOP has announced its plans of tendering $3 billion in contracts on average per year in 2020 to 2024. In current scenario, Chile has 14 projects tendered in 2020, within which, the Biobío hospital network project, Coquimbo hospital, Valdivia health network, Digital Bus Stop concession, La Serena Hospital, National Cancer Institute, and others can largely benefit with the adoption of precast construction methods.
