Construction industry in Lithuania, advantages and perspectives

According to the research, conducted by the EUROMIG project’s staff, the construction business in Lithuania has been recovering after the crisis and is increasing its assets. The Lithuanian statistics shows that the number of construction companies and number of people, involved in construction industry has been increasing, especially since 2011 year.

The Lithuanian construction sector can be characterized by a large quantity of little construction companies (9 and less employees). It should be noticed that such a characteristic makes industry and infrastructure profitable. The fragmentation of this sector allows to complete projects in time and with high responsibility. Moreover such situation gives more opportunities for small and medium enterprises development in Lithuania. Statistic data see in the table 1 below.
