New Forecast Report on the Malaysian Construction Materials Industry

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Future of the Construction Materials Market in Malaysia to 2015" report to their offering.

During the review period, the Malaysian construction materials market recorded a CAGR of 5.32%. With an increased number of government and private sector jobs in 2010, and increased construction activities, the construction materials market is expected to remain on a positive growth track in 2010 and throughout the forecast period. Encouraged by improving economic prospects, property developers are expected to commence an increased number of projects in 2010. Consequently, greater demand for construction materials is also expected.

The combination of well-disposed regulations, continuous governmental support, and a strengthening property market are expected to improve the demand for construction materials throughout the forecast period. Under the 10th Malaysian Plan, the government announced tax incentives for buildings graded on the Green Building Index (GBI), and consequently the majority of Malaysian buildings require substantial renovation in order to satisfy GBI standards. The requirement for renovation is expected to result in increased demand for construction materials over the forecast period, and WMI anticipates that the construction material market will register a CAGR of 6.76%.
