The Brazilian construction industry (residential, commercial and infrastructural) employs nearly 12 million people and accounts for around 8% of the GDP. The industry is undergoing an important transformation as it incorporates new technology concerning environmental sustainability (LEED) and more modern construction methods (BIM).  The prospects for the construction industry in Brazil for the future are positive due to various factors: 

  • The Olympics in 2016
  • Major infrastructural projects relating to transport, energy, water/sewage, etc
  • Government sponsored low income residential construction
  • General growth of the economy

 

There are thus significant opportunities for foreign companies in this sector, be it makers of construction machines and equipment, construction material suppliers as well as providers of specialized consulting services.
