Market Report, "Germany Infrastructure Report Q3 2011", published

New Construction market report from Business Monitor International: "Germany Infrastructure Report Q3 2011"

 
PRLog - Jun. 27, 2011 - BMI expects Germany's construction sector to post anaemic growth rates over the next nine years, despite relatively strong economic growth in Q111. With the German economy expanding by 1.5% as exports surged to record highs in Q111, the country may have recovered from losses experienced over the financial crisis, but construction activity growth had eased by April 2011. Data for March 2011 showed that Germany's construction sector rebounded in early-2011 - after severe weather impacted results - jumping by 6.2% on the previous month, when activity increased by 3.4%, according to the Economy Ministry. However, there is a strong likelihood that activity will ease after a strong start to the year, as the high growth rate moderates. BMI expects the sector to grow by just 0.73% in 2011 to EUR94.74bn (US$135.48bn), up from EUR92.62bn (US$122.86bn) in 2010.

Key developments in recent months include:

*  The government made a U-turn on nuclear following the Fukushima crisis in March 2011, resulting in huge political repercussions, with recent regional elections illustrating the level of anti-nuclear sentiment in the country. German utilities followed through on threats to cease payments to the country's Green Fund as the moratorium on Germany's nuclear estate continued. With the political tide turning and becoming staunchly anti-nuclear, BMI expects a significant alteration to Germany's energy policy. Renewable energy is likely to be heralded as the best way to replace nuclear; however, this policy is risky. When replacing nuclear power, Germany will need to come up with a much more reliable and large-scale solution than renewables, with gas likely to be the only alternative. Ironically, one possible outcome could be that the country has to increasingly rely on imports from countries that are themselves reliant on nuclear, specifically France and the Czech Republic, as has been the case since the shutdown of the seven plants.
 *  Within the roads submarket, a public-private partnership (PPP) contract for a 58km section of the A8 highway from Ulm to Augsburg in Germany was awarded in April 2011. The EUR410mn (US$593.46mn) project involves planning, financing, upgrading and operating the section. Activists and opponents to the Hochmoseluebergang (Upper Mosel Crossing) bridge failed to halt the continued construction of the EUR330mn (US$488mn) project in early-May 2011, as authorities approved the crossing. Opponents spent some years fighting the project, which involves the construction of a 10-column, 1.7km bridge at a height of 158m, running between two mountains in Southern Germany.
 *  In mid-2011, Nord Stream confirmed that commercial operations will begin in October 2011. The company finished laying the first 1,200km of the EUR7.4bn (US$11bn) pipeline in early- May 2011, following a year of construction and as a prelude to a second parallel pipeline to allow operations during future maintenance. Work on the second pipeline is underway and slated for completion in April 2012. Meanwhile, a court order to halt construction of an ethylene pipeline in the south east of the country threatened to extend the timeline of the project, which is led by BASF along with six other firms. Stuttgart's administrative court ordered special-purpose vehicle Ethylene-Pipeline Sued (EPS) to freeze construction in April 2011 over concerns that the 360km pipeline is too close to homes in the towns of Aalen and Rudersberg, Bloomberg reported.


BMI does not expect the sector to break the 1% mark over the remainder of the forecast period between 2012 and 2020. We expect to see real growth average 0.7% year-on-year (y-o-y) over the period, with the sector valued at EUR116.89bn (US$146.12bn) by 2020.
