LONDON, July 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsis
Construction activity in Spain shrank during the review period (2011–2015), reflecting weak business confidence, consumer demand and depressed economic conditions. Poor investor confidence reduced infrastructure construction activities during the review period.
Spain's construction industry has been greatly damaged by the country's economic crisis, but it showed signs of recovery in early 2015. Consequently, the country's construction industry registered a growth rate of 4.4% in real terms in 2015, following an average annual decline of 9.7% during the preceding four years. Recovery in the general economy, foreign investors' interest and business confidence contributed to the recovery.
The industry's output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.42% over the forecast period (2016–2020), up from -5.71% during the review period.
The industry's growth over the forecast period is expected to be supported by the government's flagship programs, such as the Golden Visa scheme, Infrastructure and Transport Plan (PEIT) 2005–2020, and the National Renewable Energy Action Plan 2011–2020.

- To support the country's construction industry post-economic crisis, the government launched the Golden Visa scheme in 2013. Under this scheme, foreign citizens are allowed to purchase residential permits by investing EUR500,000 (US$555,378) or more into the Spanish property sector. This is expected to encourage foreign buyers from around the world to invest in the Spanish property market.
- Investors can also obtain a short-term visa for a period of six months under the new Golden Visa scheme by presenting proof of funds and a deposit contract in a Spanish bank account, which will in turn enable them to travel more flexibly during the on-going purchase process. This is expected to accelerate the frequency of foreign visits to the country, which will in turn bode well for commercial construction, owing to the demand for a higher number of leisure and hospitality buildings and retail buildings.
- With the aim of improving the country's transport infrastructure, the government is planning to allocate EUR10.1 billion (US$11.2 billion) in the 2016 draft budget. The Spanish Ministry of Development launched a Strategic PEIT 2005–2020 to develop the country's rail infrastructure. Under the PEIT, the government is planning to add 9,656km of railway lines by 2020. Accordingly, it will allocate EUR5.5 billion (US$6.1 billion) of the total transport budget in 2016, to upgrade rail infrastructure. Of this total, EUR3.7 billion (US$4.1 billion) will be spent on the development of high-speed rail networks.
- The new renewable energy auctions system introduced by the government in 2015 is expected to boost various investments into the country's renewable energy sector. In January 2016, the government auctioned 500MW of wind power capacity, and is further planning to auction 5,900MW of wind power during the year to achieve its energy targets until 2020. It also seeks to install an additional 8.5GW of renewable energy capacity during 2015–2020. These new installations are expected to raise the total renewable energy capacity of the country from 48GW in 2015 to about 57GW in 2020.
- Over the forecast period, the institutional construction market is expected to be driven by the government's efforts to promote the healthcare and educational sectors through increased budget allocations. According to the 2016 draft budget, the government is planning to allocate EUR2.5 billion (US$2.8 billion) to the education sector, which represents a 9.3% increase as compared to 2015's budget allocation. The health, social services and equality sector is expected to receive EUR2.0 billion (US$2.2 billion), which represents an increase of 5.3% when compared to 2015.
