92nd Euroconstruct Conference: European Construction Market Outlook until 2024 – Austrian Construction Market Development. Country Report Austria
Studies, November 2021, 38 pages,
The economic picture in 2021 turned out better in the Austrian construction sector than predicted six months ago. Current official baseline data show a smaller decline in construction in 2020. Additionally, strong momentum in the first half of 2021 points to a significantly higher increase in construction output in 2021. Growth in the construction sector as a whole thus remained close to the overall European trend. Non-residential and civil engineering showed a relatively strong expansive development in 2021 which can be seen as a counter-reaction to the negative impact of the pandemic in the year before. Residential construction, which recorded the smallest declines and is already at a high level, shows the lowest growth potential.
