Infrastructure deal value and volume increased in H2 2018 relative to H1 2018 and H2 2017, a potential sign of sustained growth within the US infrastructure deals pipeline and an increased utilization of the dry capital allocated to the US infrastructure sector.
New infrastructure focused legislation continues to be introduced on the federal and state level, while additional regulatory guidance has been released in H2 2018 related to US tax reform considerations. These developments, coupled with ever-changing technology advancements and increased investment in the telecommunications, transportation, and social sub-sectors, reflect a strong outlook for the US market and the emergent investor base currently poised to take advantage of the long-anticipated sector maturation.
“There are many disruptors currently at play in the US infrastructure market – legislative and regulatory developments, changing technological capabilities, expanded P3 opportunities, and the overall public focus on infrastructure projects. These factors have led to increased fundraising efforts dedicated to US infrastructure projects and reflect an increasingly active deals market across all sub-sectors.”
