Construction in Ukraine – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2021
In real terms, the Ukrainian construction industry recovered in 2015 after registering a gloomy performance in 2014 owing to the economic recession. Weak construction activity in 2014 was a result of various factors such as the country’s high public debt, widespread corruption and currency devaluation, which forced the economy into recession.
However, the industry gained pace in 2015, supported by improvements in regional economic conditions. In addition, significant aid from financial organizations such as the International Monetary Fund added momentum to government efforts to boost economic growth. The industry’s expansion continued in 2016 as the government announced plans to upgrade the country’s aging infrastructure.
The industry is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2017–2021) as the government continues to implement major structural reforms to revitalize the economy. The government’s large-scale investments in transport, energy and residential infrastructure projects are also expected to drive industry growth over the forecast period.
The industry’s output value in real terms increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.44% during the review period (2012–2016), and is expected to post a CAGR of 16.59% over the forecast period.

The project includes the construction of several factories and warehouses on a 23.0ha site.
In January 2017, the government announced plans to develop 54 solar energy projects in the country with a total installed capacity of 460.0MW.

This is expected to accelerate the pace of investments in the solar sector.
