Synopsis
In real terms, Belgium’s construction industry will continue to expand over the forecast period (2015–2019), albeit at a slower rate compared to the review period, due to lower-than-expected economic growth, weak export demand and high debts.

The construction industry’s output value in real terms is forecast to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 0.99% over the forecast period, down from 2.54% during the review period (2010–2014).

Over the forecast period, growth in the construction industry will be mainly supported by the residential, commercial and infrastructure construction projects.

The growing number of tourists and the country’s rising population will support growth in the retail industry. Moreover, government efforts to improve the country’s utilities infrastructure will also support growth in the construction industry. Population growth and urbanization will continue to generate demand for residential development.
