Synopsis
Following five years of expansion, the Swiss construction industry slightly contracted in 2015, with industry output declining at a rate of 0.3% in real terms. However, improving European economic conditions and government investment in roads, railways and airports will drive the industry over the forecast period (2016–2020).

According to the Swiss Federal Statistical Office (FSO), the seasonally adjusted average construction production index declined by 3.1%; from 104.1 in 2014 to 100.9 in 2015, whereas the seasonally adjusted average construction turnover index declined by 3.5%, from 107.7 to 103.9 during the same period.

As robust and modern transport infrastructure is vital for the growth and competitiveness of an economy, and the Swiss government is focusing more on infrastructure development. Accordingly, it plans to launch the EC250 high-speed train to connect Basel and Milan by 2019.

In real terms, the industry’s output value is forecast to rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.87% over the forecast period; compared to 1.39% during the review period (2011–2015)
