Private Activity in Infrastructure Slowed Down in the First Half of 2011

2012-01, World Bank

New private activity in infrastructure in developing countries declined in the first semester of 2011, but remained strong and continued to be highly selective, according to data from the private participation in infrastructure project database. Most of the new activity was concentrated in a few countries, particularly India, and Greenfield projects. In the first semester of 2011, 117 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closing in 20 low and middle-income countries. These projects involved investment commitments (hereafter, investment) of US$42.9 billion. Such level of activity represents a decline of 8 percent by investment and 8 percent by number of projects from the level reported in the first semester of 2010. Although investment declined from 2010, private activity in the first semester of 2011 remained high when compared with previous periods and was the fourth highest level since 2000.

Private Activity in Infrastructure in the Middle East and North Africa Remained at low Levels in 2010

2011-08, World Bank

In 2010, three infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in three low- and middle-income countries, involving investment commitments of US$1.1 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in the 1990-2009 period attracted new investment of US$5.8 billion, bringing total investment commitments (hereafter, investment) to infrastructure in the region to US$6.9 billion in 2010. This level of investment is similar to the one reported in the region in 2009 (US$6.8 billion). However, private activity by number of projects is one third of the one reported in 2009 during the previous year (nine new projects in 2009).

For Fifth Consecutive Year India Drove Private Activity in Infrastructure in South Asia to a New Peak in 2010

2011-08, World Bank

In 2010, 102 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closing in 4 low- and middle-income countries in South Asia, involving investment commitments of US$47 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in the 1990-2009 period attracted new investment of US$26.5 billion, bringing total investment commitments (hereafter, investment) to infrastructure sectors to US$73.5 billion in 2010. The activity in 2010 represents an increase of 72 percent by investment and 70 percent by number of projects compared with 2009. The growth rate of investment is particularly significant given that investment in the region had been growing since 2006 but at a lower rate. Investment in new projects grew by 54 percent from 2009, and additional investment in projects implemented in 1990-2009 rose by almost 120 percent.
