Construction in Portugal - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022
Portugal's construction industry recovered in 2017, after sustained weakness since 2007. This upturn was driven by positive developments in regional economic conditions, recovery in tourism and exports, a revival in both investor and consumer confidence, and government investment in transport infrastructure. Consequently, the country's construction industry registered growth of 6.8% in 2017 in real terms.
The industry is expected to continue to register positive growth over the forecast period (2018-2022), driven by the government's efforts to enhance commercial, energy and utilities infrastructure. In addition, the government's aim to improve the transport network is expected to support investments in infrastructure projects, which will in turn fuel growth in the industry. The rise in building construction permits is also expected to drive public and private sector funding towards construction projects.
The government's effort to promote economic growth through the implementation of programs such as Ferrovia 2020 and Financial Instrument for Urban Rehabilitation and Revitalization (IFRRU) will support the industry's expansion over the forecast period.
The industry's output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.19% over the forecast period, compared with -1.11% during the review period (2013-2017).
