Understanding the sector impact of COVID-19: Engineering & Construction

1 April 2020

As the effects of COVID-19 are felt around the world, public construction has been one of the few activities that has been maintained to some extent. Activity will likely continue in the very short-term because the lockdown in several countries hasn’t been total and companies are willing to continue executing their contracts in order to avoid liquidation damages. However, work is expected to halt soon as supply chains are disrupted by a shortage of subcontractors and materials, and public agencies and administrations begin to terminate contracts to control expenses. In the residential and non-residential subsectors, the situation is different. Entities in these subsectors (for example, individuals, retail companies, and small businesses) are facing significant short-term stress and, with little choice but to conserve cash, many of these have already stopped projects.
