Construction in Bulgaria - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2025

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak severely affected Bulgaria’s construction industry, the industry suffered from labour shortages and project delays amid the travel restrictions and social distancing measures imposed by the government. This led to industry output contracting by 1.2% in 2020 down from a growth rate of 3.6% in 2019. According to the National Statistical Institute (NSI), the construction industry’s value-add grew marginally by 0.7% year-on-year (YoY) in real terms in the third quarter of 2020, following a decline of 7.4% in Q2 2020 and a growth rate of 1.9% in Q1 2020.

However, the construction industry is forecasted to recover in 2021, with a growth of 5% expected, supported by the resumption of construction works.Over the remainder of the forecast period, the industry is expected to grow at an annual average rate of 4%.

The industry will be supported by investments in the infrastructure construction sector. In July 2020, the European Union (EU) announced an economic recovery package worth BGN59 billion (US$33.2 billion) under the bloc’s long-term budget for the period 2021-2027. The country will also receive BGN17.6 billion (US$9.9 billion) under the EU’s cohesion policy 2021-2027 to develop the country’s research and innovation (R&I) centres. The government also allocated BGN40 million (US$22.5 million) in January 2021 to support employment in the tourism and transport sectors under the Human Resources Development programme.
