This report gives a comprehensive overview of the public-private partnership (PPP) market in Australia. The market is well established, supported by comprehensive legislation at federal and state levels. The World Bank has assessed Australia’s regulatory frameworks for all aspects of PPP implementation as aligning closely with international PPP good practices, more so than the average OECD country.
The report outlines both the history and future of the market, presenting data on PPP projects developed between 2007 and 2017 and Australia's current pipeline. The latter represents a total investment of approximately US$127 billion, with 67 PPP projects in planning and 25 ongoing PPP tenders.
Transport is the most prominent sector within the national PPP market, amounting to almost 50% of all projects in development or operation. Its prominence is even higher when considering project investment. Of the US$228 billion total investment of the 213 PPP projects in development or operation, US$190 million is concentrated in the Transport sector.
For more details of these projects, see the report’s index. This lists all of the PPP projects in development in Australia in the InfraPPP database. Projects are organised by stage, with listings spanning from projects in planning to those in operation.
