Our forecasts cover the desired geographical area

We monitor and forecast construction within the geographic boundaries defined by our client, such as the entire Finnish market, a certain Finnish region, the Baltic region, the Nordic countries or Europe as a whole. We use methods developed in Finland in forecasting international developments, where applicable, but always consider the special features of construction in the target area.

The construction market forecasts for Finland are region- or even municipality-based. Our regional forecasts deal with their building stock, municipality-basedconstruction production statistics as well as development of the mostsignifi cant individual construction projects.

Why would we order a forecast when we monitor the market ourselves?

Many companies try to forecast construction trends based on self-collecteddata. The data collected by an individual company is, however, often toonarrow in scope or improperly focused with regard to the products they use orthe activities they engage in. The narrower the scope of the information used tomake forecasts, the more inaccurate they are.

Our strength lies in the scope of the data we use in forecasting and the long-term nature of our monitoring. Since we have available vast amounts ofsystematic basic data, we are able to make signifi cantly more accurate, focusedand in-depth forecasts than companies’ internal market researchers.
