The Building and Construction Sector


The building and construction sector refers to the industry responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of buildings and infrastructure. This sector covers a wide range of activities, including the construction of residential, commercial and industrial buildings, as well as infrastructure projects such as roads, bridges and utilities.

The building and construction sector is a major contributor to the global economy, providing employment and generating economic growth in many countries. The building and construction industry is constantly evolving with new technologies and materials developed to improve efficiency, safety and sustainability.


The Building and Construction Sector Report

The building and construction sector, along with other related sectors, is the deepest industry in the world, with a size of 13% of global GDP. Beyond the impact of the pandemic in 2020, the sector's performance in the recent period did not meet expectations.

Over the past two decades, the industry has seen a business productivity growth of only 1% year-on-year. However, the annual growth rate of the global economy in the same period is about 2.8%.

Considering the time and working performance consumed, the risk of the sector is quite high, while the EBITDA average is around 5%.

While the annual change in the world construction sector market value in 2019 was approximately 2.6%, it was 3.2% in 2018. This ratio has serious regional differences. While the rate of change in China in 2019 was 4.4%, it was 1.2% in North America and 2.3% in Europe.

In the global market, there is an expectation of an annual profit of approximately USD 265 billion, which is hoped to be realized by the end of the crisis.

The total value chain size of the sector is estimated at approximately USD 11 trillion of global value-added and USD 1.5 trillion of global profitability. The analyzes show that despite the losses caused by the pandemic due to shifts to non-construction areas and lack of demand, the added value risk in the sector is 40-45%.

If the cost-benefit exchange value can be turned into an advantage by the companies in the construction sector, the total profitability ratio will be able to increase from 5% to 10%. Although the rates vary in branches such as housing, infrastructure, and industrial construction, we can say that the whole sector will be affected by this advantage.

There is a great deal of competition among firms to get the lion's share of the potential profitability of 265 billion USD, and we can say that firms that look more like the new (start-up) players of Silicon Valley than traditional firms are more advantageous.

Of this USD 265 billion, USD 215 billion is related to housing, USD 40 billion to infrastructure and USD 10 billion to industrial construction.
