Construction and Engineering

Investment in Papua New Guinea’s construction and engineering sector has been fuelled by an acute shortage of commercial and residential real estate since the mid-2000s – initially triggered by the PNG LNG project and then by the emergence of a growing middle class.

The sector is volatile, in part because of the relatively small number of major projects providing stimulus to the economy. Construction generated an estimated K6.4 billion in 2018, which equated to 8% of GDP.

Resources-related projects are likely to remain the sector’s engine, but recent years have seen a growing number of residential, hotel, retail, transportation and office developments.
