The global infrastructure market in 2019 has seen a range of deals financed and plenty of new plans hatched. The problems in the contracting sector remain, however. PFI’s Global Infrastructure Report 2019 case studies leading deals such as Gordie Howe, Florida Rail, Paraguay’s Corredor Bioceanico, Shuqaiq IWP, Tours-Bordeaux and Belgrade Airport. Themes such as China’s Belt & Road and Thailand’s Eastern Economic Corridor are examined and the problems with US and Australian construction projects are revealed.
The renewables sector remained the most vibrant energy market over the past year, while the TAP pipeline brought back attention to mega oil & gas projects. PFI’s Global Energy Report 2019 looks at emerging renewables markets, such as Poland and Vietnam, alongside established ones, such as Belgium and Scotland, with an eye on the boom under way in Spain and Australia. The report examines new structures such as US energy P3s and Asian Green bonds and offers an outlook on LNG and FPSO financings.
