Construction in Norway Market Key Trends and Opportunities to 2022

Press Release

Norway’s construction industry registered a growth of 4.4% in real terms in 2017. This was preceded by annual growth of 2.5% in 2014, 2.9% in 2015 and 4.2% in 2016. Growth during the review period (2013-2017) was driven by positive developments in regional economic conditions and government investment in energy and transport infrastructure.

The industry is expected to expand over the forecast period (2018-2022), albeit at a slightly slower pace. The industry’s expansion over this period is expected to be mainly supported by the government’s efforts to improve the quality of infrastructure across the country. The industry will be supported by the government’s ongoing efforts to develop infrastructure through large-scale investments under the National Transport Plan 2018-2029.

According to Statistics Norway, the country’s gross fixed capital formation in the construction industry grew by 3.2% in real terms in the first half of 2018 (the latest data available at the time of writing), compared to the same period in 2017. The pace of growth of gross fixed capital formation is expected to remain positive throughout the remainder of 2018, and will continue to support the Norwegian construction industry’s growth over the forecast period.
