Infrastructure Insight: Germany
The report provides a detailed analysis of the infrastructure sector in Germany, including the state of current infrastructure, the regulatory and financing landscapes, forecast spending across all key sectors and the major projects in the construction pipeline.
The report covers all key infrastructure sectors: roads, railways, electricity and power, water and sewerage, communication, and airports and ports.
Germany’s infrastructure industry is set to grow at a relatively strong pace over the forecast period (2017–2021). Higher government spending (especially for transport and broadband infrastructure) alongside structural measures to improve access to public investment is expected to support the industry’s growth in the coming years.
According to Timetric’s Infrastructure Intelligence Center (IIC), Germany’s infrastructure construction market’s value increased from EUR48 billion (US$53.3 billion) in 2011 to EUR55.6 billion (US$61.8 billion) in 2016, and is projected to reach EUR70.3 billion (US$78.1 billion) by 2021 (in nominal value terms). This is based on the assumption that a number of large-scale projects will proceed as planned, including a number of transport projects such as the Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link, the Stuttgart 21 High-Speed Rail Line and the Berlin Brandenburg Airport Expansion.

The IIC is currently tracking 189 strategic infrastructure construction projects in Germany, at all stages of development from announcement to execution. These projects have a total investment value of US$129.6 billion.
The electricity and power projects account for the largest share of infrastructure projects in the pipeline, with a total project value of US$49.1 billion; this is followed by railway projects with a pipeline value of US$40.3 billion. The pipeline value for roads amounts to US$24.2 billion, while for airports and other infrastructure projects it stands at US$14.9 billion. For water and sewerage projects, the total pipeline value stands at U$1.2 billion.
The German government is currently stepping up efforts to modernize its transport infrastructure. In March 2016, the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) presented the 2030 Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan (2030 FTIP). Over the period to 2030, EUR269.6 billion (US$299.6 billion) will be invested to renovate and interlink the country’s transport infrastructure. Of the total, EUR132.8 billion (US$147.6 billion) will be spent on federal trunk roads, EUR112.3 billion (US$124.8 billion) on federal railways, and EUR24.5 billion (US$27.2 billion) on federal waterways. In addition to transport infrastructure, the federal government is pushing ahead with the expansion of digital infrastructure. In March 2017, the BMVI adopted the ‘Gigabit Germany Initiative for the Future’ to attract EUR100 billion (US$111.1 billion) of public and private investment to create a high-performance gigabit network, which will provide universal coverage in Germany by 2025. The federal government will also continue to provide financial relief for the states and local authorities.
