NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Following three years of contraction, the Swedish construction industry recovered in 2014, and registered a growth rate of 12.1% in real terms. The recovery continued through 2015, and is expected to remain in place over the forecast period (2016–2020), with investments in infrastructure construction, healthcare, manufacturing, educational facilities and housing projects continuing to drive growth. Economic recovery will also be a driver, and should increase the demand for residential and commercial buildings.
The government's focus to develop the country's infrastructure under the National Reform Program 2016 is also expected to drive forecast period growth. Under this program, the government introduced the Active Industrial Policy, the Long-Term Energy Policy, the Investment to Build Sweden Plan, and a policy of knowledge-based education for all.
Under the Active Industrial Policy, the government aims to reduce unemployment, strengthen Swedish competitiveness in the manufacturing sector, and increase exports by attracting foreign manufacturing companies. Under the Long-Term Energy policy, the government will focus on the development of renewable energy infrastructure, with the aim of becoming 100% fossil fuel free by 2040. The government is also planning to invest SEK8.3 billion (US$987.4 million) into a knowledge-based education plan to develop educational infrastructure and facilities.
In real terms, the industry's output value is forecast to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.67% over the forecast period; up from -0.05% during the review period (2011–2015).
