2014-03-05 19:53:04 - Construction in the Netherlands - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2017 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The Dutch construction market valued EUR73.1 billion (US$101.8 billion) in 2012, recording a CAGR of -4.16% during the review period. All construction categories registered negative growth in this period. This is largely a result of the slowing down of the economy following the financial crisis and austerity measures implemented by the government. Residential construction was the largest construction category, with a 45.1% share of the construction industry value. Despite this, prospects remain bleak, as depressed economic conditions make it difficult for Dutch households to repay housing debt. Prospective buyers, especially those looking to get onto the property ladder, and households looking to refinance their debt are finding it difficult to secure mortgages. There looks to be little improvement in this
situation in the short term, as the government implements measures to protect the banking system from the risk of large mortgage defaults.
â¢ Residential construction was the largest construction market, with a 45.1% market share, valued EUR44.6 billion in 2012 and recorded a CAGR of -4.16%. House prices in the Netherlands boomed in the pre-crisis years. Since the peak levels of 2008, house prices have dwindled by 16%. Rising unemployment and declining house prices have contributed to a large number of households facing the problem of the value of their assets declining lower than the value of debt.
â¢ Commercial construction recorded the largest decline of all construction categories with a CAGR of -5.17% during the review period. The retail sector has been subdued since 2008. Consumer spending is cautious, owing to rising unemployment, low wage growth, and a depressed economic outlook.
â¢ The Dutch budget deficit is above the 3% limit. Slowing domestic consumption and declining exports have forced the government to implement austerity measures.
â¢ The Netherlands has well-developed infrastructure that allows it to act as a major logistics location in Europe. Large investments are made in maintenance and expansion of roads, ports and IT infrastructure. The Netherlands lags behind the rest of Europe in the use of renewable energy. In 2010, only 4% of the countrys energy was derived from renewable sources, nearly a third of the EU average. The government aims to increase this to 14% by 2020.
