Market Overview

The Greece Facility Management Market is anticipated to record a CAGR of 2.4% over the forecast period (2022 - 2027). The growing emphasis on outsourcing non-core operations and growth in the real estate sector is expected to drive the Greece market for facility management services. Along with this, the government regulation on safety measures and environmental concerns to follow green practices is expected to drive the market.

  • Greece has prominence in outsourced markets for facility management services in terms of development and sophistication. The region's facility management industry operates with integrated contracts provided by significant vendors such as Cowa facility management S.A., ALTER EGO S.A., etc., across various countries and borders, and small local players focus on single contracts and single-service solutions. However, given the dynamics occurring across the region, there are increasing opportunities to leverage facility management and corporate real estate in new ways.
  • Moreover, facility management (FM) includes management methods and techniques for building management, infrastructure management for an organization, and overall harmonization of the work environment in an organization. This system standardizes services and streamlines processes for an organization.
  • Over the last decade, several service vendors operating in the region, such as Manifest Service S.A., CORDIA, etc., have been focused on expanding their presence to leverage the increasing demand for facility management, especially with the recent trend favoring outsourcing of non-core operations. Further, Greece has been witnessing increased opportunities to leverage facility management and corporate real estate in innovative ways, given the dynamics across the country.
  • In terms of the end-user demand, the public sector's contribution toward the facility management market in Greece is primarily driven by the government's constrained budgets that lead to the continuous outsourcing of essential facility management services.
  • The market for Greece facility management has been subjected to moderate growth due to the rise in demand for people with improved requirements. This scenario is projected to bolster the development of the market during the forecast period. The ongoing pandemic has resulted in the steady market growth in the region. However, the pandemic has resulted in limited production, leading to a sharp decline in business inputs. ​
  • The outbreak of COVID-19 has had a mixed business impact on facilities management firms. The restrictions on the movement of people resulted in a decline in project work and a decreased level of activity across many customer sites. Significant players in the market, such as Premium Property Operations, Manifest Facility Management, and others, were adversely affected due to the pandemic lockdown.
