Infrastructure Insight: Mexico

Published: September 2016
No. of Pages: 47


The report provides a detailed look into the infrastructure sector in Mexico, including analysis of the state of the current infrastructure, the regulatory and financing landscapes and the major projects in the construction pipeline.

The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.


Mexico's infrastructure construction expenditure is poised to grow at a relatively strong rate over the next decade. The total value of the infrastructure construction market reached MXN961 billion (US$51.9 billion) in 2015, according to Timetric, up from MXN766.7 billion in 2010, and it will rise to MXN1.2 trillion in 2020 (in nominal value terms). This rapid growth in spending is based on the assumption that a number of the large-scale infrastructure projects move ahead as planned, including the MXN171 billion Mexico City New International Airport, the expansion of Veracruz port, the Mexico City-Toluca high-speed train and the Oriental Nuclear Power Plant.
