Construction industry

© Aleksander Mijatovic /

The construction industry is one of the most important sectors in Germany. It accounts for ~10% of German GDP and employs more than 2.5 million people. German construction companies have a significant footprint across Europe – mainly via subsidiaries.

The Euro crisis and associated uncertainties led to a favourable market environment for construction companies in Germany. However, this dynamic market is also characterised by increasing energy costs and volatile raw material prices. Increasing price pressure and intensity of competition have led to faster consolidation within the industry.
