Emerging trends in infrastructure 2022
We see 2022 as a year of opportunity as the world learns from the past and works to rebuild with more resilience, sustainability and equity. In this year’s edition of Emerging Trends in Infrastructure, KPMG explores the issues that will influence infrastructure in the year ahead and their potential impacts on your organisation. Australian infrastructure project owners, procuring agencies and the contracting community will find themselves navigating trends that are emerging globally as well as facing into opportunities and challenges closer to home. The full report is available here and in this video we call out a selection of the trends and challenges that we are seeing first hand in Australia including:
An increase in spending on social infrastructure
Investment in economic infrastructure and public transport will continue but we expect an increase in social infrastructure spending including modernising facilities and addressing backlog issues.
Moving forward on sustainability
Infrastructure investors, owners and operators will be exploring cost effective ways of making new assets more sustainable and old assets more resilient.
Continued investment toward digitisation of infrastructure
We are seeing data, analytics and new technologies being used across the asset lifecycle to improve planning decisions, in the development and delivery of new assets and into operations.
