The German construction industry has returned to growth and is in the best sh ape it has been for over a year . As such, we are maintaining our forecast for growth in the industry at 1. 6 % year-on-year in real terms driven largely by continued investment in the renewables sector and an uptick in r esidential building activity . We expect growth to reach 2% in 2015 . Ho wever , we note a lack of investment across the board will keep growth muted over our forecast period to 2023.

Low levels of domestic investment remains are largest concern for the market, which will largely go towards maintaining and upgrading ageing infrastructure rather than major new projects. We highlight that overall investment levels remain muted and major projects will be subject to constrained budgets and strong opposition, as experienced by Stuttgart 21. Over our ten-year forecast period to 2023, the construction industry will average real growth of 1.4%.

* Low interest rates have made mortgages affordable and German real estate has been viewed as a safe haven for European investors. As such, there has been significant growth in house prices, which should spur the residential sector.
* Due to unfavourable economics, gas-fired regeneration power plants are becoming unprofitable. Also, EU legislation will hit the coal fired generation project pipeline. As such, it is the renewables sector which will drive growth in the energy and utilities sector, and the industry should experience more sustainable growth as the government has decided to limit subsidies to the first 2.5GW of capacity which are brought online each year -...
