The best infrastructure stocks
Posted On July 28, 2021
The biggest and most important question on every investor’s mind these days is whether or not to invest in infrastructure.
For the past few years, a lot of pundits and investors have been saying that infrastructure investment is undervalued and that it is too risky.
This is true.
However, infrastructure investment has grown significantly in recent years.
And while it is still far from being the dominant driver of global economic growth, the market has been growing at a pace that is much faster than expected.
And with investors taking the time to do some research on the topics and the companies that are making a difference, it is becoming increasingly clear that infrastructure is the future of the economy.
In fact, according to a recent report by The New York Times, investors are looking at the future value of infrastructure as a $1 trillion industry.
It is important to note that this number does not include companies that have entered the market yet.
And it does not take into account infrastructure that has already been built, such as roads and bridges.
So it is important for investors to take into consideration the overall size of the infrastructure market, which is projected to be $1.2 trillion by 2025.
To give a little context, it took a lot longer than a decade for infrastructure to become a major driver of growth in the U.S. economy.
It took nearly two decades for infrastructure in the United Kingdom to reach $1 billion in value.
And in Canada, it was just under two decades from a $400 billion investment to a $3.5 billion valuation.
But it is worth noting that infrastructure investments have been growing faster than overall economic growth in recent decades.
For example, the share of GDP invested in infrastructure in 2010 was roughly 60 percent of total economic output, while GDP growth in China in 2015 was roughly 3.7 percent.
Meanwhile, in the EU, infrastructure spending is estimated to have increased by more than 50 percent between 2000 and 2015.
So, it appears that the infrastructure boom is only beginning to hit the U, U.K. and EU economies.
The U. S. is expected to reach its $2 trillion infrastructure investment milestone in 2025, while the EU is expecting to reach it in 2020.
In this article, we will break down how infrastructure investments are driving economic growth.
We will also look at the stocks that have been making the most noise in recent months.
