Press Release

The Swedish construction industry registered growth of 6.8% in real terms in 2017, preceded by an annual average growth of 4.3% during 2014-2016. Growth during the review period (2013-2017) was driven by improvements in business confidence and consumer demand, and public and private sector investment in institutional, residential and infrastructure construction projects, leading to an increase in demand for the Swedish construction industry.

Under the National Transport Plan 2018-2029, the government plans to invest SEK712.5 billion (US$89.0 billion) in the country’s rail, port, road and aviation infrastructure by 2029. The government aims to bring reforms in national policies, as well as provide funds in the education, energy and housing sectors for sustainable growth by 2020 under the National Reform Program 2018, which will also support the industry’s growth.
