Germany Infrastructure Report

BMI View: The German construction industry performed better than expected in 2013, as our view for a recovery in the sector plays out. In 2014 we forecast real growth in the industry at 1. 6 % in real terms driven largely by continued investment in the renewables sector and large demand for residential building s . We have upped our medium-term forecast as the government moves to address low levels of domestic investment and ageing infrastructure with pledges of investing billions of euros in road and rail projects. We highlight that investment levels will remain muted however, and major projects will be subject to constrained budgets and strong opposition, as experienced by Stuttgart 21. Over our ten-year forecast period to 2023 , the construction industry will average real growth of 1.4%.

Key Trends And D evelopments

  • After the September 2013 elections, the government aims to pump EUR23bn into infrastructure over the next four years. We tentatively factored this investment pledge into our forecasts. However, the realisation of the full amount of investment is, in our view, unlikely and subject to political wrangling. As such, we only expect a moderate boost to growth.

  • Low interest rates have made mortgages affordable and German real estate has been viewed as a safe haven for European investors. As such, there has been significant growth in house prices, which should spur the residential sector.

  • Due to unfavourable economics, gas-fired regeneration power plants are becoming unprofitable. Also, EU legislation will hit the coal fired generation project pipeline. As such, it is the renewables sector which will drive growth in the energy and utilities sector, and the industry should experience more sustainable growth as the government has decided to limit subsidies to the first 2.5GW of capacity which are brought online each year - prolonging investment periods.

  • We are monitoring the ongoing approval process for the Fehmarnbelt tunnel project, set...
