Moreover, for 2020, KeysFin analysts estimate a historical maximum of over 126 billion lei.
"The pandemic did not close the construction sites in Romania, on the contrary. This sector continued its accelerated growth both due to the maintained fiscal and governmental facilities (low salary taxes and the New House program), and due to the changing consumer behavior on the real estate market: Romanians wanted new and more spacious houses. For 2021, we estimate an equally sustained growth, especially in terms of demand, taking into account residential projects in all key areas of the country", said Roxana Popescu, Managing Director of KeysFin, one of the leading providers of business information solutions from Romania.

According to KeysFin data, ASTALDI SPA (Romania branch) became the leader of the construction sector in 2019, after a doubling of turnover, to almost 986 million lei in 2018 (1.1% of the total), surpassing the 2018 leader, BOG ' ART SRL, which ended 2019 on the 5th place after an annual decrease of 33%. Moreover, by 2020, KeysFin specialists estimate a possible change in the top due to the slowdown in office building projects.

Returning to the top 3 construction companies in Romania, on the 2nd place is STRABAG SRL (687.8 million lei and 0.8% of the total), and on the 3rd place CONSTRUCȚII ERBASU SA (551 million lei and 0.7% of the total ) in 2019.

As a geographical distribution, Bucharest ranks first in the top of counties according to the turnover of construction businesses based here, totaling 33.7 billion lei and 31% of the national level in 2019, the capital being followed in the ranking of Cluj (7% of the total), Ilfov (6.2%), Prahova (3.7%) and Iași (3.5%). At the same time, in Bucharest there are the most companies in the field (14,314) and the largest number of employees (80,698).
