Construction in Germany – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023


Germany’s construction industry expanded by 3% in real terms in 2018; this was preceded by an average annual growth of 1.9% during the preceding four years. Growth during the review period (2014-2018) was driven by positive developments in regional economic conditions, as well as public and private sector investment in energy, residential and transport infrastructure.

The industry’s output value is expected to continue to expand in real terms over the forecast period (2019-2023), driven by the government’s plans to upgrade the country’s transport infrastructure, coupled with efforts to boost the residential construction market. In March 2019, the government announced plans to invest EUR150 billion (US$170 billion) on infrastructure, housing, digital technology and education over the next four years. The government also plans to invest EUR28.1 billion (US$32 billion) to develop transport infrastructure in Berlin by 2035. In addition, the government’s aim to expand renewable energy resources is expected to attract investments in energy infrastructure projects, which will in turn fuel growth in the industry.

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to post a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.59% over the forecast period.

Key Highlights

– This research expects the residential construction market to account for 48.3% of the industry’s total value in 2023, driven by the government efforts to balance housing demand and supply through the construction of housing units. In September 2018, the government announced its plan to construct 100,000 new social flats by 2021, with an expected investment of EUR5 billion (US$5.9 billion).
– Energy and utilities construction market’s growth over the forecast-period will be driven by the government’s efforts to develop renewable energy infrastructure to phase out all coal power plants by 2038, cut carbon emissions and provide a safe and reliable electricity supply. The government aims to increase the share of renewable energy in terms of the total electricity supply from 38% in 2018 to 65% in 2030. In February 2019, Amprion GmbH and Open Grid Europe GmbH, the country’s power and gas grid companies, announced plan to construct the country’s first large power-to-gas plant at Lingen in Germany’s windy north-west region. The 100MW hydrogen plant project is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
– This research expects the infrastructure construction market to be the industry’s fastest-growing market over the forecast-period to record a forecast-period CAGR of 8.26% in nominal terms, driven by public and private sector investments in the development and modernization of the country’s transport infrastructure. The government allocated EUR269.6 billion (US$298.1 billion) under the Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan (FTIP) 2030 to develop the country’s road, rail and waterway infrastructure projects until 2030. Of the total, 49.4% of the funds will be invested in road, 41.3% in rail, and 9.3% in waterway infrastructure projects.
– The government’s focus on the development of the country’s power grid infrastructure is expected to support growth in the German construction industry over the forecast period. The four German power transmission system operators (TSOs) plan to invest EUR34-36 billion (US$38-41 billion) to develop the country’s power grids by 2035. Accordingly, the plan seeks to construct 3,800km of new lines, comprising 2,600km of high voltage direct current (HVDC) lines and 1,200km of AC lines, and also strengthen between 7,600km and 8,500km of existing cables by 2035.
– The total construction project pipeline in Germany – as tracked, and including all mega projects with a value above US$25 million – stands at EUR261.5 billion (US$308.3 billion). The pipeline, which includes all projects from pre-planning to execution, is skewed towards late-stage projects, with 70.1% of the pipeline value being in projects in the pre-execution and execution stages as of August 2019.
