Project Insight – Port Construction Projects: Asia-Pacific


The rapid pace of economic expansion in Asia-Pacific – with China, India and Vietnam among the fastest growers – registered over 6.5% annual GDP growth in 2018, which highlights the region as a major global trading area. The region includes nine of the world’s top ten ports by twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) volume handled. Shanghai leads in both the region and globally, with a volume of 40.2 million TEU in 2017, followed by Singapore with 33.7 million TEU. Recently, China has not invested as much in ports as its neighbors, as there is overcapacity in its existing port facilities. Unused port capacity in China is expected to double by 2030, due to the consolidation of shipping and reduced port trade.

Construction Intelligence Center (CIC) is currently tracking port construction projects in Asia-Pacific with a total value of US$199.4 billion. Of this, US$81.2 billion is in the planning stage and US$64.3 billion is in the execution stage. India accounts for the highest value with US$39.4 billion, followed by Malaysia with projects valuing US$26.2 billion. Australia and Bangladesh follow with port construction projects with a value of US$24.6 billion and US$24.5 billion respectively. The highest value port project is the US$22.8 billion Carey Island Port Klang Extension in Malaysia, which is due to be completed in 2025.
