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 industrys output is expected to be supported by the governments efforts to develop the countrys 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 industrys 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).

Rising consumer confidence and an increase in disposable income is expected to support the residential construction markets output over the forecast period. With an investment of EUR5.8 billion (US$6.8 billion), the governments efforts to construct 30,000 housing units by 2022 will support the markets growth over the forecast-period.
- The energy and utilities construction markets forecast-period growth will be supported by the governments 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 governments efforts to develop and modernize the countrys 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.

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.
