New Zealand: Building and Construction in New Zealand 2021-2025: Q4 2021 Update

​Total construction activity took a step back in Q3 2021, declining 7.2% y/y. While we expected activity to taper a little with the re-imposition of lockdown measure, an upward revision in historical data for civil engineering activity exacerbated the decline. Activity is expected to push ahead over Q4, which will see total construction work done grow 6.4% in 2021 (down from a previous +7.2%) and 7.4% in 2022.

Activity is forecast to normalise, declining 1.0% pa over the three years to 2025.
