Construction in Spain - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022

Summary

The Spanish construction industry registered growth of 4.9% in real terms in 2017. This was preceded by annual growth of -2.0% in 2014, 2.4% in 2015 and 1.9% in 2016. A recovery in the economy, coupled with government investment to develop road, rail and other transport infrastructure, supported growth in 2017.

The industry is expected to expand in real terms over the forecast period (2018-2022), driven by the government’s focus on the development of transport infrastructure, energy and utilities facilities. The government plans to invest EUR103.8 billion (US$117.1 billion) on 814 major projects in transport infrastructure, drinking water facilities and urban development during the period 2017-2021. Moreover, under the National Rural Development Program for 2014-2020, the government plans to spend EUR435.0 million (US$482.9 million) to develop efficient irrigation systems and other agricultural infrastructure by 2020.

In real terms, the industry’s output value is forecast to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.73% over the forecast period, compared to 1.80% during the review period (2013-2017).
