Emerging trends in 2014 (PDF 448 KB)
Trends that will change the world of infrastructure over the next 5 years


Many of the challenges we saw in 2012 carried over into 2013. However the hottest topic has been the continuing inability of governments to bring projects to the market. The public discussion has evolved and the conversation about infrastructure has become more coherent. There is an emerging consensus from the general public that more money needs to be spent on infrastructure although people are still reluctant to dig into their own pockets to pay for it. However, the most important challenge for 2014 is taking that critical next step and improving the flow of projects from a robust pipeline of development into procurement, construction and ultimately operations when the benefits will be felt.


In this special edition of Foresight, four of KPMG’s Global Infrastructure leaders (Nick Chism, James Stewart, Julian Vella and Stephen Beatty) sit down with John Kjorstad to look back on their 2013 predictions and outline some additional trends that are expected to change the way infrastructure will be delivered over the next 5 years.
