Construction industry

The construction industry is one of the most important industry sectors in Germany. It accounts for ~10% of the German GDP and employees more than 2.5 million people. German construction companies are also very successful across Europe – mainly via subsidiaries.

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