2011-08, Parulekar, Koustubh

In 2010, 36 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closing in seven low and middle-income countries, involving investment commitments of US$10.9 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in the 1990-2009 period attracted new investment of US$4.3 billion, bringing total investment commitments to infrastructure in the region to US$15.2 billion in 2010. The activity in 2010 represents a 9 percent decline by investment and 45 percent drop by number of projects compared with 2009. Investments in new projects fell by 9 percent and in projects implemented in previous years by 10 percent compared with 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.

In 2010, investment in new projects increased by 21 percent compared with 2009 while investment in previously implemented projects declined by 3 percent.

2011-07, Jett, Alexander Nicholas

From 1990-2010, project sponsors from the Republic of Korea implemented nineteen infrastructure projects in low and middle income countries with investment commitments totaling US$4.9 billion. Investment during all periods except 2001-2005 was dominated by the energy sector (US$4 billion), followed by the telecom sector (US$0.9 billion). Korean investment was spread across five regions; it was heavily concentrated in East Asia and the Pacific (EAP) region with 78 percent or total investment. This investment lacked a single country focus.

Investment in Energy Projects with Private Participation Remained at a Peak Level But Was Highly Concentrated in 2010

2011-08, Perard, Edouard

In 2010, 106 energy projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in 28 low- and middle-income countries, involving investment commitments of US$55.7 billion. In addition, energy projects implemented in 1990-2009 attracted new investment of US$14.2 billion, bringing total investment commitments to the energy sector to US$69.9 billion in 2010. Such level of activity represents a 4 percent drop by investment and a 25 percent decline by the number of projects from 2009. Private activity in energy remained close to a peak level in 2010. However, such activity was highly concentrated on a few countries. India alone attracted 54 percent of investment in the sector and 34 percent of new projects, and was the country that sustained investment in energy close to a peak level. If India were excluded, investment in energy in developing countries would have fallen by 50 percent in 2010 compared with 2009. In addition, the four top countries (adding Brazil, Russian Federation, and Turkey to the list) accounted for 77 percent of investment and 58 percent of new projects. By type of business, private activity remained highly concentrated on electricity generation projects, which accounted for 75 percent of investment and 82 percent of new projects in 2010.

Private Activity in Infrastructure Remained at Peak Levels and Highly Selective in 2010

2011-08, Izaguirre, Ada Karina

In 2010, 231 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closing in 41 low and middle-income countries. Infrastructure projects implemented in 1990?2009 had additional commitments of US$82.5 billion, bringing total investment in 2010 to US$170 billion. Public Private Infrastructure (PPI) activity in 2010, however, was highly concentrated in just one country: India. This country, which has been a top recipient of PPI activity since 2006, implemented 95 new projects and attracted total investment of US$74.4 billion in 2010, doubling its level of activity from 2009.

Private Activity in Latin America Declined Sharply But Became More Dispersed in 2010

2011-08, World Bank

In 2010, 54 infrastructure projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in 11 low and middle-income countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, involving investment commitments (hereafter, investment) of US$12.3 billion. Infrastructure projects implemented in the 1990-2009 period attracted new investment of US$21.9 billion, bringing total investment in infrastructure to US$34.2 billion in 2010. Such level of activity represents a 37 percent drop by investment and a 24 percent decline by the number of projects from 2009. The decline in regional activity was driven by the slowdown in new projects which saw their investment drop by 62 percent from 2009. Most of the decline in new projects occurred among large projects (US$500 million or more) which saw their investment fall by 76 percent in 2010 compared with 2009. By contrast, additional investment in projects implemented in 1990-2009 remained stable compared with 2009. Regional investment was less concentrated on Brazil and more widespread across other countries than in the previous year. Brazil saw its share in regional investment decrease from 81 percent in 2009 to 53 percent in 2010 due to a 59 percent decline in investment in the country. Certainly, Brazil accounted for the decline in regional investment. If Brazil were excluded, investment in the region would have grown by 50 percent in 2010 compared with 2009. The 11 countries with new projects in 2010 represented a larger geographic scope for new activity than in 2009 and 2008 when only eight countries implemented new projects each year. In 2010 Brazil had 18 new projects, Argentina and Mexico followed with eight and seven new projects, respectively. Chile, Colombia and Peru each had five new projects. Nicaragua had two projects while Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, and Panama each implemented one new project.

Private Activity in Telecommunications Recovered in 2010 But Remained Below Pre-Financial Crisis Levels

2011-08, Jett, Alexander Nicholas

In 2010, eight new telecom projects with private participation reached financial or contractual closure in seven low and middle income countries. These projects involved investment commitments of US$4.2 billion. Telecommunications projects implemented in the 1990-2009 period attracted new investment of US$67 billion, bringing total investment commitments to the sector to US$71.2 billion in 2010. Total investment in the sector grew by 15 percent in 2010 compared with 2009, recovering from the sharp drop in 2009, but remained below the pre-financial crisis levels of 2007-08. The number of new projects reaching financial closure (eight) was the lowest of the entire period of 1990-2010), suggesting that activity in most countries focused on network expansion of existing operators rather than increasing the number of operators. Certainly, telecommunications operators in many developing countries have merged or consolidated in the last few years.

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).
