Capital projects, also known as megaprojects, are complex, large-scale projects that typically cost USD 1 billion or more. They span many different sectors such as construction, energy, and transportation defence, infrastructure, and ICT and can be found in the largest economies as well as emerging markets. Examples of such projects include bridges, tunnels, highways, railways, airports, seaports, power plants, dams, oil and natural gas extraction projects, public buildings, aerospace projects, etc.
It is estimated that the global market for megaprojects is about USD 8 trillion per year – that is close to 8% of global GDP spent on megaprojects every year. As the number and size of megaprojects continues to increase, one fact stands out: they tend to underperform— 90% of megaprojects are significantly delayed, over budget, or fall short of their promised benefits.
