Key Market Trends

Growth of Urban Population

  • The rapid growth of continuing urbanization is a major driver of transportation infrastructure investment. As per the World Bank, in 2020, the world population reached 7.8 billion.
  • In 2000, 70% of the population in Europe lived in urban areas. By 2020, the share of the urban population had reached 75%, and it is expected to reach 80% in 2035.
  • As the share of the urban population grows, the growth of transport infrastructure is also required to connect them in the urban areas in Europe.
  • In Europe's city centers, public spaces account for between 2 and 15% of the total land area, and their functions are important to relieve the pressures caused by the rising population in a city.
  • New transportation infrastructure is required in developing countries to enable population transfer from rural to urban areas. Existing infrastructures in developed countries must be improved to improve resilience, improve the environment, and reduce maintenance costs.
  • Companies could use new and emerging technology to improve public services (such as mobility and well-being), interact more effectively with citizens, increase productivity, and solve environmental and sustainability issues.

Recent Developments

  • In January 2022, in France, Colas and Saipol (Avril Group) have made an agreement to supply a fleet of trucks with Oleo100, a B100 renewable bio-based fuel. This fuel cuts greenhouse gas emissions by 60% compared to diesel fuel and reduces fine particle emissions by up to 80%. Once the trucks are deployed, it will prevent almost 46,000 tons of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere over a year.
  • In December 2021, Eiffage accomplished the acquisition of 35% of the A65 motorway in southwest France and became its unique shareholder. Eiffage has become the main shareholder and operator of A'liénor as a result of these acquisitions. Eiffage used its available treasury to fund this investment of USD 255 million.
  • In December 2021, on the campus of La Doua University in Lyon, France, Colas combined innovation and sustainable development. Colas recently installed Flowell, a dynamic light-emitting road marking technology. The aim is to improve user safety at the intersection between a tram line and a bike route.
  • In January 2021, STRABAG and JOHANN BUNTE partnered on a new contract to widen the A1 motorway in Germany. This joint project of STRABAG (50%) and JOHANN BUNTE (50%) will widen the A1 to six lanes for approximately 30 kilometers. The contract is worth roughly USD 686 million, including structural maintenance for the segment over a 30-year period. In mid-2025, the section will be fully open to traffic.
