In real terms, the Danish construction industry registered limited growth during the review period (2011-2015), due to the financial crisis which affected investments in construction projects, particularly during 2012-2013.
The industry recovered somewhat in 2014, however, as a result of a gradual recovery in the economy and improving business confidence; the country's construction industry posted 2.6% of growth in real terms that year.
The industry is expected to expand over the forecast period (2016-2020), driven by improvements in investor confidence and subsequent public and private sector investments in residential, infrastructure, and energy and utilities construction projects.
The industry's growth over the forecast period will be supported by government efforts to balance supply and demand for housing. Additionally, government's focus on the development of the country's transport infrastructure is also expected to drive industry growth.
