Infrastructure market capacity program

The Infrastructure Market Capacity report responds to a request from the Council of Australian Governments in March 2020 for Infrastructure Australia to regularly report on the capacity of the market to deliver on the record investment pipeline, reflecting the record investment in the sector and the necessary demand for skills and materials to meet these levels.

As reported in the 2022 Infrastructure Market Capacity Report - the second report in this series - Australia’s 5-year infrastructure investment pipeline has grown by $15 billion in value over the last 12 months. At the same time, wide-ranging supply pressures have continued to challenge the industry’s capacity to meet demand, increasing risks to on-time and on-budget project delivery.

With major public infrastructure playing a key role in Australia’s economic ambitions, the 2022 Infrastructure Market Capacity Report explains that improving risk management and proactively sequencing the major infrastructure pipeline are crucial to controlling unfolding impacts such as growing constructor insolvencies and cost increases.
