Construction in Italy – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2021

Construction in Italy – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2021

Synopsis

Following a weak performance during the review period (2012–2016) on the back of the economic recession, expanding public debt and high unemployment rates, the Italian construction industry is expected to recover and register positive growth over the forecast period (2017–2021).

The industry’s expansion over the forecast period is expected to be supported by the government’s efforts to revamp economic growth through investments in infrastructure, and energy and utilities construction projects. Additionally, positive developments in the country’s manufacturing, retail and tourism sectors are also expected to support the industry’s growth.

The government’s efforts to boost foreign direct investments are also expected to bode well for the industry over the forecast period. In real terms, the industry’s output value is expected to rise from a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -2.97% between 2012 and 2016 to growth of 1.75% per annum from 2017 to 2021.

Key Highlights
  • With an aim to develop the overall infrastructure in Puglia and Basilicata regions, the Italian government announced plans to invest EUR7.1 billion (US$7.9 billion) under the Operational Program 2014–2020. Accordingly, the government will implement various transport, energy and educational infrastructure projects until 2020.
  • Though the effect of economic recession continued to weigh on the housing prices in 2016, a gradual recovery could be observed over the forecast period, which can be attributed to the government’s efforts to restore growth in the housing sector through tax incentives on the purchases of residential properties. Timetric projects the residential construction market to post a forecast-period CAGR of 2.89% in nominal terms, following negative growth during the review period.
  • In order to upgrade the country’s transport infrastructure, in July 2015 the European Union (EU) launched the Operational Program for Infrastructure and Networks in Italy, which included plans to invest EUR1.8 billion (US$2.0 billion) to develop various rail, road and port infrastructure projects in the country by 2020.
  • The government’s focus on the development of the country’s broadband network is expected to contribute to the expansion of the telecommunications infrastructure category over the forecast period. In line with the EU’s target to provide internet access to all households in every European country, in March 2015, the government announced plans to invest EUR6.0 billion (US$6.7 billion) until 2020 to deploy internet networks with a minimum speed of 30.0mbps across the country.
  • To accelerate the pace of foreign investments in the country’s manufacturing sector, the government launched the ‘Industry Plan 4.0’ in February 2017. Under this, the government announced plans to offer various tax incentives to foreign manufacturers, including a 50.0% tax credit on all the research and development investments, which will be made in the country between 2017 and 2020.
