The Finnish construction industry gained traction during 2015-2016, following an average annual contraction of 3.8% in real terms during 2012-2014. This growth in the industry was supported by a gradual improvement in regional economic conditions and restored business confidence, which in turn increased the pace of construction activity in the country.
Over the forecast period (2017-2021), the industrys expansion is expected to be supported by a revival in investor confidence, which is expected to add momentum to the flow of public and private sector investments in residential, commercial and transport infrastructure projects.
Industry growth is expected to be supported by the governments effort to upgrade the countrys infrastructure through the implementation of government flagship programs such as the General Government Fiscal Plan for 2017?2020 and the National Energy and Climate Strategy 2030. The industrys output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.18% over the forecast period, compared to 1.00% during the review period (2012-2016).
