Synopsis
In real terms, Norway’s construction industry will continue to expand over the forecast period (2015–2019), with investment in transport infrastructure projects continuing to drive growth. Industry growth is expected to be supported by the government’s plan to improve the country’s transport infrastructure.

In 2013, the government announced the fourth National Transport Plan (NTP) 2014–2023, under which a series of infrastructure projects will be launched. Under the plan, the government intends to invest NOK508.0 billion (US$86.5 billion) in various transport infrastructure projects.

In real terms, the industry’s output value rose at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.17% during the review period (2010–2014), however, this is forecast to decelerate to 3.91% over the forecast period due to weakening economic growth.
