Construction in Austria – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

Summary

The Austrian construction industry registered growth of 3.1% and 2.8% in real terms in 2017 and 2018 respectively, following an average annual growth of -1.3% during 2014-2016. This growth can be attributed to positive developments in economic conditions, improvement in consumer confidence and investments in the commercial, industrial and office construction projects.

Over the forecast period (2019-2023), the industry’s output is expected to be supported by the government’s efforts to develop the country’s transport, residential, and energy and utilities infrastructure. The implementation of the Austrian Climate and Energy Strategy will drive investment in the development and expansion of wind and hydroelectric power plants in the country. Under this, the government plans to install 100,000 roof-top photovoltaic systems and storage plans during 2019-2023, in order to increase the electricity generation by individuals and private businesses and reduce dependency on the government distribution and transmission network. Furthermore, an increase in the number of new building approvals issued and investments in the research and development and telecommunication sectors are also expected to boost new construction activity over the forecast period.

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.75% over the forecast period, compared to 1.03% during the review period (2014-2018).

Key Highlights

– GlobalData expects the residential construction market to remain the largest market over the forecast period and account for 42.1% of the industry’s total value in 2023. Rising consumer confidence and an increase in disposable income is expected to support the residential construction market’s output over the forecast period. With an investment of EUR5.8 billion (US$6.8 billion), the government’s efforts to construct 30,000 housing units by 2022 will support the market’s growth over the forecast-period.
– The energy and utilities construction market’s forecast-period growth will be supported by the government’s focus on climate protection and adhering to the international climate targets. In May 2018, the federal government introduced the Austrian Climate and Energy Strategy, through which it aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 36% compared to 2005 levels, and produce 100% of electricity from renewable energy sources by 2030, as compared to 72% in 2018.
– GlobalData expects the infrastructure construction market to record a forecast-period CAGR of 5.61% in nominal terms, driven by the government’s efforts to develop and modernize the country’s transport infrastructure. To overcome the problem of traffic congestion and increase the road capacity, Asfinag, a public-owned company that plans, builds and maintains roads in Austria, plans to invest EUR141.0 million (US$164.0 million) in 2019 to upgrade the Voest Bridge in the city of Linz, as well as EUR940.0 million (US$1093.2 million) to develop roads in Upper Austria during 2019-2024.
– Forecast-period growth in the institutional construction market is expected to be driven by the government’s focus on research and development (R&D) activities in the country. According to Statistics Austria, the total expenditure on R&D in the country grew by 6.3% in 2018, going from EUR11.6 billion (US$131 billion) in 2017 to EUR12.2 billion (US$14.4 billion) that year; it is further estimated to reach EUR12.8 billion (US$14.9 billion) in 2019. In order to attract more investment in the R&D sector, the government is providing a research premium through which companies and individuals can claim 14% of their total research expenditure.
– The total construction project pipeline in Austria – as tracked by GlobalData, and including all mega projects with a value above US$25 million – stands at EUR55.7 billion (US$65.6 billion). The pipeline, which includes all projects from pre-planning to execution, is skewed towards late-stage projects, with 62.2% of the pipeline value being in projects in the pre-execution and execution stages as of May 2019.

Project Insight – Port Construction Projects: Europe

Project Insight - Port Construction Projects: Europe Summary According to CIC analysis, Europe has the lowest investment of all the regions in port construction, which reflects its position as a mature but slow-growth economic area with developed port facilities. The EU growth rate of 2.4% in 2017 is relatively low compared with the dynamic economic growth of Asia-Pacific. Uncertainty resulting from the Brexit vote in the UK, together with declining global demand for manufactured goods, has dampened economic activity in Europe. Ports for the EU28 countries handled 975 million tonnes of cargo in Q1 2018, down from 978 million tonnes handled in Q4 2017, but up by 2.8% on the cargo handled in Q1 2017. Rotterdam was the leading port in the EU, with 433 million tonnes, followed by Antwerp, wi......

Project Insight – Port Construction Projects: Asia-Pacific

Project Insight - Port Construction Projects: Asia-Pacific Summary The rapid pace of economic expansion in Asia-Pacific - with China, India and Vietnam among the fastest growers - registered over 6.5% annual GDP growth in 2018, which highlights the region as a major global trading area. The region includes nine of the world's top ten ports by twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) volume handled. Shanghai leads in both the region and globally, with a volume of 40.2 million TEU in 2017, followed by Singapore with 33.7 million TEU. Recently, China has not invested as much in ports as its neighbors, as there is overcapacity in its existing port facilities. Unused port capacity in China is expected to double by 2030, due to the consolidation of shipping and reduced port trade. GlobalData's Const......

Project Insight – Port Construction Projects: Middle East and Africa

Project Insight - Port Construction Projects: Middle East and Africa Summary The Middle East and Africa region's economies are largely dependent on the export of oil-based products and commodities. The Middle East - particularly the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries - is a major exporter of petroleum products, and a major exporter and importer of liquefied natural gas (LNG). The improvement in demand for commodities should provide relief for economies in Africa, where dependence on commodities exports is high; this in turn will increase the need for higher capacity ports in the region. Africa, with its population of 1.2 billion, only handles about 6% of the global water-borne traffic and approximately 3% of the world container traffic, so it is overdue for port expansion. Africa h......
