Pune, India, 29th November 2017: WiseGuyReports announced addition of new report, titled “Construction in Switzerland – Key Trends and Opportunities to 2021”.                       


In real terms, the Swiss construction industry recovered in 2016, after registering a relatively low performance in 2015 due to slow economic growth. This slowdown in construction activity in 2015 was particularly due to the overvaluation of the country’s currency against the euro by the Swiss National Bank (SNB), which had an adverse impact on export trade activity. Additionally, rising unemployment rates and poor private consumption held back economic growth. Consequently, in 2015 the industry posted growth of 0.1% in real terms, following an average annual growth of 2.0% during the preceding three years. The industry rebounded in 2016, supported by a gradual improvement in economic conditions coupled with government investments in the development of the country’s overall infrastructure.

The industry is expected to gain some momentum and expand over the forecast period (2017–2021), supported by a revival in both investor and consumer confidence on the back of an improving economy; this is expected to accelerate the flow of investment in construction projects. Though the persistence of currency overvaluation is expected to weigh on the industry’s performance, a slight deceleration in the Swiss franc by the SNB is expected to offer a relatively positive outlook for the industry over the forecast period.

The industry’s output value in real terms increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.52% during the review period (2012–2016), and is expected to post a CAGR of 2.02% over the forecast period.

• Under the Energy Strategy 2050, the government is planning to increase the country’s energy production capacity from renewable sources. Accordingly, to take advantage of the vast potential of renewables in the municipality of Poschiavo, in November 2016 the federal government of Graubunden announced plans to develop a hydroelectric storage plant with a total installed capacity of 1,000MW.

• The Swiss city of Lausanne is preparing to host the Winter Youth Olympics in 2020. Accordingly, in May 2017, construction of a new Olympic village called ‘Vortex’ began. With an estimated investment of CHF156.0 million (US$158.5 million), the site includes the construction of a ring-shaped building and a 2.8km spiral-shaped ramp.
