Construction in Denmark - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022

Construction in Denmark - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022

Summary

In real terms, the Danish construction industry registered an average annual growth rate of 2.5% during the review period (2013-2017). This growth can be attributed to ongoing government and private sector investment across the transport, residential and commercial buildings segments.

The industry is expected to continue to expand in real terms over the forecast period (2018-2022), with investments in transport infrastructure construction, healthcare, manufacturing industry, educational facilities and housing projects continuing to drive growth. In order to develop the country’s transport infrastructure, the government plans to invest over DKK100.0 billion (US$15.1 billion) by 2020.

The government’s focus on the development of energy infrastructure, particularly renewable energy, will also drive forecast-period growth. The government aims to generate 50% of the country’s energy needs from renewable sources by 2030. This will drive public and private sector investments in various renewable energy infrastructure projects over the forecast period.

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.94% over the forecast period, compared to 3.31% during the review period.

  • Forecast-period industry output will be supported by government’s focus on renewable energy which will drive growth in the energy and utilities construction market. The government aims to make energy generation in country fossil fuel-free by 2050. In April 2018, the government launched its ‘Energy For a Green Denmark’ policy, with the aim of phasing out all coal fueled power plants and producing 50% of the total energy requirement from renewable sources by 2030.
  • GlobalData expects commercial construction market output to record a forecast-period CAGR of 4.18% in nominal terms, driven by rising consumer and investor confidence, positive developments in domestic and regional economic conditions and growth in the retail and tourism sectors.
  • In order to reduce traffic congestion levels, the government is focusing on the development of light rail in major cities across the country. In order to connect the suburbs of Copenhagen, the government plans to invest DKK5.1 billion (US$805.4 million) to build a new light rail by 2020.
