Infrastructure means the facilities prepared as the underlying framework for the activities of daily life and industry. Generally, the word is used to mean facilities such as roads, railways, water supply and sewage systems, electrical grid, ports, airports, dams, and telecommunications networks; but in a broad sense, it also encompasses schools, hospitals, parks and welfare facilities.
Infrastructure is indispensable to the growth and development of cities and industry. Furthermore, since the amount of money invested in such facilities is enormous, infrastructure construction itself has a large ripple effect on the economy.
In emerging nations experiencing remarkable growth, the preparation of the infrastructure to support even further development is crucial. On the other hand, in developed countries, as the existing infrastructure becomes superannuated, in addition to the maintenance and update of the current installations, there is also a demand for infrastructure that supports new technologies and new social needs, such as Smart Cities, to create energy-efficient societies in greater harmony with the environment.
Therefore, the demand for infrastructure development is on the rise in both developed and emerging countries, making this an area of interest for business.
