Provides introducing the fields of project finance and infrastructure finance, and provides a record overview of project-funded opportunities through the years from 2005 to 2009. Good examples of project-funded opportunities range from the $1.4 billion Mozal aluminum smelter in Mozambique, $4 billion Chad-Cameroon pipeline, $6 billion Iridium global satellite telecommunications system, 900 million A2 Toll Road in Belgium, $20 billion Sakhalin II gas area in Russia, and also the $28 billion Dabhol energy project. Globally, firms funded $240 billion of capital costs using project finance in 2009, lower from $409 billion in 2008 because the economic crisis hit the Western marketplaces. Using project finance is continuing to grow in a compound rate of % during the last 5 years, 4% in the last ten years, and 12% in the last fifteen years. This note focuses mainly on private sector purchase of industrial and infrastructure projects, and consists of four sections. The very first section defines project finance and contrasts it along with other well-known financing systems. The 2nd section describes the evolution of project finance from the origins within the natural assets industry within the seventies, towards the U.S. energy industry within the eighties, to some much wider selection of industry programs and geographic locations within the the nineteen nineties, and many lately to infrastructure finance within the 2000s. The 3rd section supplies a record overview of project-funded investment during the last 5 years (2005 to 2009), and appears at industry, project, and participant specific data. The 3rd section offers recent data on infrastructure opportunities and public-private close ties. The ultimate section talks about current and sure future trends..
