Rising prices of materials to slow Brazil’s construction growth

The Brazilian infrastructure construction segment recorded strong growth in 2021 of 10.2% but growth will slow to 3.8% in 2022 due to rising prices of materials and their lack of availability, as well as elevated interest rates, according to a report from Global Data. The report predicts that growth will decline even further in 2023, to just 1.4% as the rising costs and lack of availability of materials causes significant delays and cost hikes.
