Construction in France – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2021

Construction in France – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2021

Synopsis

Following two years of contraction, the French construction industry recovered slightly in 2016, mainly due to a recovery in global economic conditions and favorable government policies for manufacturing companies. Consequently, the industry registered a marginal growth of 0.1% in real terms in 2016.

The industry’s value is expected to pick up over the forecast period (2017–2021), with investments in public infrastructure, energy, commercial and industrial projects, and improved consumer and investor confidence. A rise in building permits for the construction of residential and non-residential buildings in the country is also expected to support the industry’s growth over the forecast period.

The government’s focus on the development of the country’s infrastructure under the France Development Program is expected to drive the industry’s growth, with construction output in real terms forecast to record a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.26% from 2017 to 2021.
