Construction in Croatia - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022

Construction in Croatia - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022

Summary

The Croatian construction industry’s forecast-period (2018-2022) outlook is better than its review-period (2013-2017) performance, with average annual growth in real terms set to accelerate from -0.2% to 2.5%. Government and private sector investment across residential, infrastructure, commercial and energy and utilities construction markets will drive forecast-period growth, as well as improving consumer and investor confidence.

Financial assistance from the European Union (EU) for infrastructure development will support industry growth. Under the European Structural and Investment Funds for 2014-2020, the EU is investing HRK96.6 billion (US$16.8 billion) until 2020 to develop the transport, education, research and innovation and energy sectors, as well as improving the competitiveness of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and sustainable and quality employment. Furthermore, the EU plans to allocate HRK63.8 billion (US$10.4 billion) under the cohesion policy during 2021-2027. Thorough this, the government aims to boost the economy by supporting the implementation of transport and energy infrastructure projects, which bodes well for the industry over the forecast period.
