In this year’s edition of Emerging Trends in Infrastructure, KPMG’s global network of infrastructure professionals explore the issues that will influence the industry in the year ahead and share their predictions on how infrastructure players and markets will respond.
The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have been unprecedented and far reaching. From physical distancing to travel restrictions and unforseen financial pressures, these challenges will likely continue throughout 2020.
While the crises that have defined this year could not have been predicted, the government has reacted quickly with a range of economic stimulus packages designed to assist those industries most affected by COVID-19.
Many of the 2020 emerging trends will resonate with Australian project owners, procuring agencies and the contracting community. The full global report is available here and below we call out a selection of trends that we are seeing first hand in Australia.
