After a weak previous year, the European construction industry is recovering faster than expected in 2021. According to research firm Euroconstruct, residential construction in Europe is forecast to grow 3.9% this year.

The outlook for the construction industry in Germany and Europe is positive due to the high demand for improved living space. However, in addition to delivery bottlenecks, price increases for raw materials for building materials and a lack of qualified and skilled workers are affecting growth. The industry is expected to grow by 6% this year.
