The construction sector is facing soaring prices of materials, severe shortages, and paralysing delays of supply.

Given the unique characteristics of the construction industry and the type of contracts signed between construction companies and their clients, the sector is monitored with special care.

Luxinnovation has therefore asked researchers from the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and the University of Luxembourg to carry out a study on supply shortages in the construction industry.

The objective of this study is to identify and assess key challenges faced by players in this sector and the resulting impact, and to explore paths for improvement in order to guide decision-making and possible corrective actions.

Action plan

An essential part of the study is an online survey aimed at developing a comprehensive view on the evolution of the situation of the sector and on how the global shortages impact Luxembourg.

Players involved in the construction sector and its supply chains are invited to participate in the survey until the 24th of September.

The information collected via the survey will make it possible to gain an in-depth understanding of the current situation and define a relevant action plan. The results will only be disseminated in aggregated form in the final report in order to protect the personal data of the participants.
