Switzerland's construction industry's output grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.17% in real terms during the review period (2013-2017). Although output growth slowed in 2017, this general upward trend can be attributed to public and private sector investment in transport infrastructure, energy and utilities construction projects.
Over the forecast period (2018-2022), the government's efforts to develop transport and commercial infrastructure will support the growth of the industry. In addition, the government's aim to improve local energy resources with an aim to reduce the country's reliance on imported energy is expected to support investments in energy infrastructure projects, which will in turn fuel growth in the industry. However, ongoing geopolitical tension, rising protectionism and uncertainties with new corporate tax referendum are expected to depress investor confidence, which is in turn expected to hold back growth in the industry over the forecast period.
The industry's output value in real terms is expected to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.43% over the forecast period.
