Twice a year Prognosesenteret develops new updated market forecasts. The reports cover the development over recent years and makes forecasts for two to three years in the future.
The construction market
Prognosesenteret maps all construction projects in order to monitor the development. The construction market is divided into the main categories:
- Road construction
- Rail and tram system
- Marine infrastructure
- Energy facilities
- Other public facilities
- Other construction projects
The product development in the construction market is primarily determined by the demand from the public sector. About 70-80 % of all construction work is ordered by a public agency. The construction market is less cyclical than other building markets.
We also forecast for the Nordic building market, such as new residential and commercial properties as well as the R&M market (Renovation and Maintenance).
How many homes will be built in the coming years and what controls the start-up rate? This is a key question addressed in the forecasts for new production of housing.
The report contains detailed forecasts of how many houses and apartments will be built in various parts of the country. The analysis is based on how different forces affect supply and demand in the market. The market forecasts specify both the number of houses and the economic value.
Production of commercial buildings
The report for commercial properties include the building of both private commercial operations and public operations and domestic buildings. The activity for each type of property is reported for each loan, and is specified in square meters, economic value and investments.
R&M – Renovation and Maintenance
We also forecast for the Swedish R&M market, both for private homes and commercial properties, distributed by geography (municipalities) and building types. The development in the R&M market is largely determined by the economy.
