Key Market Trends

Growing Construction Activities in the Country

  • The construction sector in the country is expected to grow steadily, over the next five years, owing to the increased public expenditure on infrastructure. The recovery would significantly support the growth of the construction chemicals market, during the forecast period.
  • Germany has the largest construction industry in Europe. The residential construction segment is expected to witness a moderately high growth rate. According to industry experts, the recent migration of people into the country is stimulating the demand for new residential construction. It is expected that around 3.6 million migrants will arrive in Germany, by 2020, which will require at least 350,000 new dwelling spaces per year. This is expected to boost the construction sector.
  • Under the 2030 FTIP (Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan), the federal government announced that it will invest USD 147.6 billion in Germany’s roads for the period 2016 to 2030, where USD 74.4 billion will be allocated for structural maintenance and replacement infrastructure.
  • The short-term and mid-term outlook for the German construction market forecasts a strong demand for infrastructure and housing investments. The construction sector in the country shows a high degree of capacity utilization, with increased competition for sub-suppliers and faces workforce shortness.
  • Currently, apart from the few very large constructions groups, internationalization does not seem to be a major driver, as most players show a quite high degree of capacity utilization resulting from domestic demand.
  • The factors are estimated to boost the demand for construction chemicals in the country during the forecast period.

Residential Sector to Dominate the Market

  • The residential segment primarily includes elite housing, middle-class housing, and low-cost housing.
  • The elite class is synonymous to luxury, and housing is no exception. The demand for apartments, penthouses, villas, and bungalows in gated communities, with world-class designs and amenities, is expanding rapidly. The developers are launching projects to cater to such demands.
  • The rising middle-class population, coupled with increasing disposable incomes, has facilitated expansion in the middle-class housing segment, thereby, increasing the use of construction chemicals in the segment, during the forecast period.
  • The low-cost housing segment is rising at a steady rate, primarily owing to the various government initiatives to provide affordable housing to the urban and rural poor.
  • All the aforementioned factors help in the growth of the construction industry in the country. This, in turn, increases the demand for the construction chemicals in the residential sector in Germany, during the forecast period.
