Construction in Romania – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2020
In real terms, the Romanian construction industry registered limited growth during the review period (2011–2015), due to low investments in construction projects during 2011–2012. Corruption allegations against politicians adversely affected investor confidence. The industry recovered in 2013 owing to the adoption of anti-corruption reforms and gradual improvements in the country’s political conditions. Consequently, the country’s construction industry posted growth of 5.0% in real terms that year.
The industry is expected to expand over the forecast period (2016–2020), driven by improvements in investor confidence and subsequent funding for infrastructure, residential, commercial and industrial projects.
The government’s Transport Master Plan, First Home program and Rural Development Program (RDP) will support industry growth over the forecast period.
The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.28% over the forecast period; up from 1.42% during the review period.
Over the forecast period, the government’s efforts to improve transport and residential infrastructure will support industry growth. In addition, the government’s aim to develop local energy resources and is expected to support investments in energy infrastructure projects, which will fuel industry growth.

To improve transport infrastructure and promote economic growth, the government is planning to implement the transport master plan, which was approved by the European Commission (EC) in July 2015. Under this program, the government announced its intentions to invest RON190.4 billion (US$47.7 billion) to develop road, rail, water and air transport infrastructure until 2030.
With the aim of achieving self-sufficiency in energy production, the government is planning to invest RON491.0 billion (US$123.0 billion) under the energy strategy 2015–2035. This plan includes investments in energy, oil and gas, and mining infrastructure by 2035. To replace the aging energy production plants, the government is planning to add two new units to the nuclear plant located in Cernavoda, with an investment of RON29.5 billion (US$7.4 billion).
To develop small-scale rural infrastructure, the government is planning to invest RON36.7 billion (US$9.2 billion) under the RDP until 2020. This includes investments for the improvement of local road infrastructure for agricultural purposes and forestry roads.
With the aim of improving access to healthcare services, the government implemented the Health for Prosperity (2014–2020) National Health Strategy. As a part of this strategy, it seeks to promote healthcare as a key determinant for the development of economic and social conditions. Under the strategy, community healthcare will become cost-effective.
The World Bank granted a RON949.2 million (US$283.4 million) loan in March 2014 to help Romania improve and enhance its healthcare system. Effective until 2020, the project aims to improve efficiency, quality and access to public healthcare services by developing hospitals and the healthcare service-delivery network.
