Malaysia has always been regarded as one of the preferred countries for real estate investors due to its investor-friendly policies. However, the property market has been in constant decline since 2012. The construction sector registered significant growth of 1.1% y/y in 2019. However, the real growth of the sector was only around 0.04% y/y, indicating low construction activity within the country in 2019. Infrastructure projects accounted for 45% of construction work. In February 2020, Fitch Solutions Malaysia Construction Report Q3 2020 predicted that the construction industry would grow by 3.5% y/y in real terms in 2020. However, both industries have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The renewed forecast by Fitch Solutions suggests that the construction sector will shrink by 5.2% y/y in 2020. However, growth revival is expected in 2021 to be 3.7% y/y p.a.
