Foresight: 10 emerging infrastructure trends for 2015
Infrastructure is a story of evolution. It drives social and economic development. It enables us to renew our public services and physical surroundings. It allows societies, economies, companies and individuals the opportunity to live to their full potential.

At the same time, the way we approach infrastructure itself is also evolving. Some of the shifts in the sector are sudden and disruptive. Others evolve slowly, ebbing and flowing in and out of political consciousness as governments and businesses react to changing circumstances.

We have seen a number of new trends rise up the agenda as societies struggle to balance necessity against opportunity in prioritizing their infrastructure spend.
  • Political uncertainty and regulatory reform are becoming key risk factors influencing global investment decisions.
  • Water scarcity, security of supply and the silent battle to control resources are already starting to impact infrastructure decision-making.
  • Development banks and multilaterals are recalibrating their targets to focus on leveraging private finance in order to improve the flow of capital towards developing world projects.
