The EU construction industry returned to growth

The EU construction industry returned to growth

After collapse caused by the global financial crisis of 2008, the EU construction industry started to recover its economic potential and partially kept this positive trend until the end of 2015. Nevertheless, production in this sector and the number of m2 of useful floor area in buildings which got permits have still not reached values recorded in 2010.

 

1.       Production in the EU construction sector

 

At the beginning of 2016, production in the EU construction sector reached 97% of value recorded in 2010. Despite the fact that the construction industry has still not produced as much as six years ago, the production of this sector grew by 5% since April 2013 and is kept at a stable level since April 2014 (Figure 1). In January 2016, the highest values of production in the EU construction sector were recorded in Denmark (119%, compared with 2010), Germany (110%), Romania (108%) and Luxembourg (106%). At the same time, the production was at lowest level in Portugal (53%, compared with 2010), Slovenia (64%) and Italy (67%).

1.1   Subsector: building construction

 

Production in the EU building construction subsector reached 95% of value recorded in 2010 and maintained its potential at a stable level since the second quarter of 2014 to the end of 2015. In the fourth quarter of 2015, the highest values of production in this subsector were recorded in Lithuania (175%, compared with 2010), Latvia (168%), Estonia (153%), Finland (109%). At the same time, the production was at lowest level in Slovenia (39%, compared with 2010), Cyprus (46%) Portugal (53%) and Croatia (61%).

 

1.2   Subsector: civil engineering works

 

Production related to the EU civil engineering works significantly grew in the first quarter of 2015 and in the fourth quarter of that year achieved 93% of value registered in 2010 (Figure 2). At the end of 2015, the highest values of production in this subsector were recorded in Denmark (140%, compared with 2010), Latvia (122%), Hungary (121%), United Kingdom (118%), Germany (116%). At the same time, the production was at lowest level in Cyprus (29%, compared with 2010), Greece (40%) and Spain (53%).

2.       Building permits (Index 2010 = 100%)

 

At the end of 2015, the number of m2 of useful floor area in buildings which got permits in EU countries achieved value recorded in the middle of 2013. It is almost 15% more than in July 2014, but still 30% less than at the beginning of 2011 (Figure 3). In December 2015, the highest number of m2 of useful floor area in buildings which got permits were recorded in Sweden (160%, compared with 2010), Malta (151%), Hungary (133%) and Germany (133%). At the same time, that number was lowest in Greece (19%, compared with 2010), Cyprus (33%) and Portugal (47%).

2.1   Residential buildings

 

The number of m2 of useful floor area in EU residential buildings which got permits in the fourth quarter of 2015 was 10% less than at the beginning of 2011. It should be noted, however, that the disparity became smaller than in 2013, because the number of m2 started to increase in the fourth quarter of 2013 and kept this positive trend to the end of 2015 (Figure 4). At the end of 2015, the highest number of m2 of useful floor areain the EU residential buildings which got permits was recorded in Estonia (192%, compared to 2010), Lithuania (171%), Germany (159%), United Kingdom (162%) and Sweden (153%). At the same time, that number was lowest in Greece (13%, compared with 2010), Cyprus (27%), Portugal (37%) and Croatia (45%).

 

2.2   Non-residential buildings (except office buildings)

 

In the case of EU other non-residential buildings (except office buildings), the number of m2 of useful floor area which got permits increased in 2015 and in the fourth quarter of that year reached 83% of value recorded in 2010 (in comparison with 75% at the end of 2014). At the end of 2015, the highest number of m2 of useful floor area in the EU other non-residential buildings (except office buildings) which got permits was recorded in Estonia (170%, compared with 2010), Austria (169%), Malta (160%), Hungary (136%), Lithuania (130%) and Poland (120%). At the same time, that number was lowest in Greece (20%, compared with 2010), Latvia (53%), Cyprus (61%) and Finland (63%).

 

2.3   Office buildings

 

In the fourth quarter of 2015, the number of m2 in EU office buildings which got permits achieved 72% of value registered in 2010. Excluding the first two quarters of 2015, it was the lowest value recorded since the first quarter of 2010 (Figure 4). At the end of 2015, the highest number of m2 of useful floor area in the EU office buildings which got permits was recorded in Estonia (405%, compared with 2010), Malta (243%), Lithuania (200%), Germany (137%), Romania (131%) and Poland (121%). At the same time, that number was lowest in Slovenia (2%, compared with 2010), Spain (3%), Croatia (19%) and Cyprus (19%).
