Construction activity in Denmark was weak in 2012 and 2013, following the financial crisis and economic slowdown, which resulted in a deteriorating business environment. Weak investor and consumer confidence, a large budget deficit and low investment reduced infrastructure construction activity during 2012-2013. However, the Danish construction industry rebounded in 2014, registering growth rate of 2.8% in real terms, and its recovery continued in 2016, due to improvements in economic conditions and business confidence with 4.7% growth in real terms in 2016.
The industrys growth over the forecast period (2017-2021) is expected to be marginally slower than in the prior five years, and will be driven by public and private sector investments in infrastructure, residential and energy projects, and improvement in consumer and investor confidence. The focus on the development of transport infrastructure and energy infrastructure - with a particular emphasis on rail and renewable energy infrastructure - will be a key growth driver. The government aims to generate 100% of electricity from renewable sources by 2035 - particularly 50.0% from wind energy by 2020 - which is expected to drive public and private sector investments in various renewable energy infrastructure projects over the forecast period.

According to Timetric, residential construction will remain the largest sector, forecast to account for 43.1% of the industrys total value in 2021. The predicted CAGR of 4.56% over the forecast period is expected to be driven by negative interest rates and an increase in new building permits coupled with urbanization and population growth.
Timetric expects the infrastructure construction market to grow at a forecast-period CAGR of 2.25% in nominal terms, driven by government investment in transport infrastructure, including plans to invest DKK110.3 billion (US$19.7 billion) by 2030 to expand the countrys rail network.
The governments efforts to increase renewable energy production - with a particular emphasis on wind energy - are expected to support funding in renewable energy infrastructure projects. The government aims to generate 100% of the countrys total electricity demand through renewable sources by 2035.
In September 2017, the Danish Parliament approved a revised draft of the Togfond program, under which income generated from the sale of North Sea oil will be used to fund a substantial investment in the main rail network. This will support the expansion of infrastructure construction over the forecast period.
The aging population is expected to drive spending on healthcare buildings over the forecast period. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), the percentage of the population aged 60 or older will rise from 24.8% in 2015 to 26.2% in 2020, and to 27.8% by 2025.
