The latest update of the European construction market forecasts presented at the 92nd Euroconstruct conference, organised
by CRESME, in Verona, Italy on 11 to 12 November 2021 showed more favourable dynamics in European construction markets than
the previous forecast. On the one hand, the pandemic-related decline was less severe in 2020. On the other hand, a stronger
upswing is expected for 2021. Of the 19 Euroconstruct member countries, 17 recorded growth in construction for 2021. Only
Germany and Slovakia show a declining development. The German construction industry was only slightly affected by the pandemic
and is slowly weakening from a high level. Slovakian construction production was already contracting before the crisis. Construction
markets in the other countries will expand in 2021, with the highest dynamics in Belgium, Italy and the United Kingdom. Overall,
construction output in the Euroconstruct area is forecast to reach 1,740 billion € in 2021. The Euroconstruct Country Report
provides detailed information about the construction market trends and its fundamentals in each of the 19 Euroconstruct member
countries until 2024. The forecasts and analyses are presented on the country level and are based on a comparable harmonised
dataset for the major construction sectors and indicators. The macroeconomic framework conditions are included additionally.
