2011 Statistics: Turnover at record level, New Contracts slightly lower

Turnover in EIC's member countries increased 10.9 % year-on-year to € 156.4 billion worldwide - the best result since records started.

EIC's member federations from 13 European countries have reported the figures of more than 200 member companies for 2011. While business in North America, Africa and the Middle East were largely stable, the markets in Europe returned to growth after two difficult years. The market developments in Asia, Australia/Oceania and Central and South America also remained favourable. Overall, contractors in all European countries benefitted from the generally positive trend.

Looking ahead to the full year 2012, the level of new contracts suggests, however, that business may not continue to progress quite as favourably. At € 169.4 billion the volume of new contracts is slightly lower than the 2010 level of €171.3 billion.
