The publisher expects the Irish construction industry to expand by 10.9% in real terms in 2021 - up from a decline of 12.7% in 2020. The industry’s output was affected by the COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdown measures imposed to contain the virus’s spread. This has continued to weigh on construction progress and has created supply chain disruptions and project delays.

The industry is expected to be further affected in Q1 2021 owing to the closure of non-essential construction sites from early January to early March 2021. The initial effects of the latest lockdown restrictions on the industry are reflected by the fall in Ulster Bank’s Construction Purchasing Managers Index (PMI). It fell to 21.2 in January 2021, following an average score of 42.1 in 2020. A further downside risk to the industry’s outlook stems from the double-digit year-on-year (Y-o-Y) contraction in the number of planning permissions granted during the first three quarters of 2020.

The construction industry’s output is expected to pick up pace and improve gradually over the coming months, following the re-opening of the industry on 5th March 2021. Output will be supported by the government’s investments in roads, housing, hospitals, and school projects. In the 2021 budget, announced in October 2020, the government allocated EUR10.1 billion (US$11.6 billion) towards capital expenditure, with the housing and transport sectors accounting for 27.3% and 24.5% of the total allocation, respectively. Over the remaining part of the forecast period, the industry is expected to register an annual average growth of 4.4% between 2022-2025, supported by the government’s investment in transport and housing infrastructure, as well as its focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the country, which will attract public and private sector investment on renewable energy projects.
