Although presumably not all of Trump’s words will result in actions, the long-term prospects for the sector are underpinned by the need for infrastructure development all over the world. In developed countries, existing ageing infrastructure needs to be updated or replaced, and in developing countries there are increasing requirements for investment to accommodate powerful demographic trends such as population growth, urbanization and improving standards of living.
