B+L Zukunftsforum 2019

on 03 July 2019 in Cologne

The construction development from the point of view of B+L

July 03, 2019

09:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.


The construction volume in Western Europe grew significantly between 2016 and 2018. But now some early warning indicators are sounding the alarm and we are beginning to lower our forecasts. These questions are becoming more pressing:

  • How severe will the decline be in Switzerland?
  • When and how will Brexit hit construction?
  • What is the impact of Brexit on the continent, e.g. the Netherlands?
  • How strong is the impact of the labour shortage on completions (also in Eastern Europe)?
  • Are developments in Sweden and Finland tipping over?
  • Scenario: To what extent can a European recession slow down construction activity?
  • Which growth markets will drive development until 2022?

In addition to these construction forecasts, we present some new studies that are currently in progress:

  • Modular building as a solution to the shortage of living space? On the status of prefabrication and modular construction in the European comparison of countries
  • Status quo in the portfolio: When will the refurbishment markets get going again?

And of course our reviews on my personal TOP topic: Digitization

  • Will there be an alternative to multi-channel distribution for the industry?
  • Which platforms in B2C and B2B are to be taken seriously besides Amazon?
  • Which business models and technologies have the potential to change the construction supply market?
