Current Industry PE: Investors are relatively neutral on the industry at the moment, considering it's trading close to its 3-year average PE ratio of 14.1x. However, future earnings are expected to decline by 36% which could potentially cause the PE ratio to fall below its historical average.

Past Earnings Growth: The earnings for companies in the Construction industry have grown 3.4% per year over the last three years, while revenues for these companies have declined 2.6% per year. This means that less sales are being generated overall, but since cost of doing business is lower, profits have been increasing.

Industry Trends

Which industries have driven the changes within the Singaporean Construction industry?

Construction and Engineering-1.04%

Industry PE: Investors are most optimistic about the Construction and Engineering industry which is trading above its 3-year average PE ratio of 14.1x. However analysts are expecting annual earnings decline of 36%, which is lower than the prior year's growth of 98% per year. So the market might believe that analysts are underestimating future growth or they expect the Construction and Engineering industry's earnings to deteriorate the least compared to other industries.

Forecasted Growth: Despite it being negative, analysts are least pessimistic on the Construction and Engineering industry since they expect its earnings to decline by only 36% per year over the next 5 years, which isn't as bad as the other industries. However, this is a reversal from its past annual earnings growth rate of 98% per year.
