Key Highlights
Construction output valued DKK191.8 billion (US$35.9 billion) in 2012, after registering a CAGR of -3.31% during the review period. A high unemployment rate, subdued domestic consumption and dwindling exports resulted in low investments, affecting all construction markets.
Residential construction constituted the largest construction market within the construction industry, accounting for a 46.8% share in 2012, with a value of DKK89.9 billion (US$16.8 billion). Property prices in Denmark were booming in the pre-crisis years and although housing prices have contracted in the past few years, property prices remain considerably higher compared to neighboring countries.
The commercial construction market valued DKK26.3 billion (US$4.9 billion) in 2012, after recording a CAGR of -3.68% during the review period, and constituted a 13.7% share of the Danish construction industry. The retail sector has been subdued since 2008. Consumer spending is cautious, owing to rising unemployment, low wage growth, and a depressed economic outlook. The demand for office space is also low in Denmark, with office space vacancies at 9.5-10% in the third quarter of 2012.
The industrial construction market posted the largest contraction of 15% during the review period, with a CAGR of -3.99%. The market valued DKK14.8 billion (US$2.8 billion) in 2012 and accounted for a 7.7% share of the total construction industry output. The Eurozone is Denmarks most important export partner. However, as a result of the debt crisis in several countries, GDP in the Eurozone declined by 0.1% in the third quarter of 2012, the fourth consecutive quarter of no growth or decline. As a result, industries that rely on foreign demand are expected to witness low to moderate growth.
Although the Danish economy is the weakest performing economy among the Scandinavian countries, the country continues to have an impressive current account surplus. The consumer price index (CPI) inflation declined to 1.9% in December 2012, in line with the trend prior to the onset of the economic crisis, when the inflation rate remained mostly below 2.0%.
