Lewes, DE -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/20/2014 -- The Irish construction industry recorded a review-period CAGR of -13.76%. Having suffered a setback during the economic crisis (2008¬–2012), it then started to recover the next year.

According to the Central Statistics Office Ireland (CSO), the number of approvals for residential projects increased by 95.0% from November 2012 to November 2013, and the building and construction production index increased by 12.0% from the second quarter of 2012 to the second quarter of 2013.

- Ireland’s construction industry suffered a sharp contraction during the country’s economic crisis, with levels of output declining from EUR48.0 billion (US$65.7 billion) in 2007 to EUR11.4 billion (US$15.1 billion) in 2013. The construction industry appears set for a sustained recovery, however. In real value-add terms, construction output rose by 10.5% annually in the first three quarters of 2013. Rising property prices, improved private investor sentiments and a number of major construction projects will boost the growth of construction industry in Ireland over the forecast period.
- Construction value added in nominal terms, registered a CAGR of -13.14% during the review period, reaching EUR2.4 billion (US$3.2 billion) in 2013. Over the forecast period, the growth in construction value added is likely to recover at a CAGR of 5.97%, owing to a steady recovery in general economic activity. The activities in the commercial and residential construction market are expected to pick up relatively faster than other construction markets over the forecast period. Due to increased construction activities and workload rising sharply, companies in the construction industry have been increasing their staffing levels. According to CSO, the rate of employment in Ireland grew by 9.5% from the first quarter of 2013 to the third quarter of 2013.
- There was a strong demand in the Irish residential construction market during the review period, as evident from the sharp increase in the sales of housing units. According to the Irish Banking Federation (IBF), the number of residential property transactions in Ireland increased by 14.0% in the first quarter of 2013, compared with the same period in 2012. Moreover, the country’s housing market is extremely supported by low interest rates and property taxes, therefore, the rise in housing sales reflects the rapid growth in the construction of new projects and the residential market.
- The Irish government introduced REITs (real estate investment trusts) in its 2013 budget in a bid to encourage commercial construction and boost the economy. REITs aim to attract investment from private investors to finance the majority of commercial projects. Some measures that will help attract private investment include an exemption from Irish corporation tax on both qualifying income and gains. In 2014, the Irish stock market is expected to have listed two more REITS on its exchange to target EUR2.0 billion (US$2.7 billion) in funds from investors ready to allocate to this tax-efficient form of investment. It will also make major investments in the retail and office real estate markets.
- To improve road infrastructure in the country, the Ministry for Transport, Tourism and Sports has announced that it will invest EUR332.9 million (US$449.0 million) in 2014 for the development of regional and local roads in the country. The total investment will include the maintenance of 1,910.0km of roads, strengthening of 2,156.0km of roads, 245 low-cost safety projects and 162 bridge rehabilitation projects. The government is investing heavily to improve the country’s infrastructure, and make it more effective for transport and logistics.
- There has been clear evidence of an expansion in residential construction, according to the latest data on new building permits. In the third quarter of 2013, residential building permits (in terms of square area) were up by nearly 4.9%, whereas non-residential building permits declined by 4.5%. Total permits declined by 10.5% annually, highlighting the latter’s greater significance to the total industry. This suggests that there are still risks to recovery in these non-residential building sectors in the years ahead.
