Project Insight - Port Construction Projects: The Americas

The US is the leading economy and trading power in the Americas, and consequently has the largest volume of trade through its ports in the region. The busiest container port, Los Angeles (LA), with 9.34 million twenty foot equivalent units (TEU) in 2017, is only 17th globally, as Asia-Pacific ports dominate the global stage. Long Beach (California) and New York/New Jersey, in second and third place, handle trade through their ports of 7.54 million TEU and 6.70 million TEU respectively.

According to the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA), the customs district of New Orleans, LA was the busiest port in the US, in terms of total tonnage, with 268.4 million metric tons (MMT) in 2017, closely followed by the customs district of Houston-Galveston, TX, with 265.9 MMT.

Latin America has less trade through its ports, and is led by Colon on the Panama Canal with a volume of 3.89 million TEU in 2017. Santos in Brazil, the leader in 2016, is now second, handling 3.58 million TEU in 2017. Balbao in Panama is in third place for trade handled, with 2.89 million TEU.

GlobalData’s Construction Intelligence Center (CIC) is currently tracking port related construction projects in the Americas with a total value of US$ 91.7 billion. Of this, US$39.0 billion is in the planning stage and US$25.9 billion is in the execution stage. The US accounts for the highest value with US$26.7 billion, followed by Brazil with projects valuing US$23.9 billion. Peru and Mexico follow with port construction projects with a value of US$8.1 billion and US$6.6 billion respectively. The highest value industrial projects in the region are the US$10.0 billion Louisiana International Gulf Transfer Terminal in the US and the US$4.8 billion Veracruz Port Northern Zone Expansion in Mexico.

key Highlights

- The total pipeline of projects is valued at US$91.7 billion with US$10.2 billion being spent in 2019 and US$20.7 billion in 2020.
