Growth in green infrastructure to support recovery from COVID-19

We expect global infrastructure spending to recover this year after the COVID-19 shock, with renewable energy benefiting from a focus on climate change.

The key takeaways of this edition are:

  • We expect investment in renewable energy infrastructure to recover rapidly after the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Infrastructure projects will offer private investors including insurers an estimated USD 1.4 trillion annual global opportunity to fill the funding gap, particularly for green and sustainable infrastructure. 
  • COVID-19 is likely to transform the design and use of buildings, public places and infrastructure. 
  • We continue to forecast USD 3.3 trillion annual public and private infrastructure investment globally between 2021-2040, creating significant premium potential for the insurance industry.
