The INTERMAT Construction Observatory came about as a result of the desire to establish stronger bonds with the market and provide construction equipment manufacturers with strategic research on 12 countries in the EMEA zone, handpicked for their planned investment levels in infrastructure and buildings.
The objective of the Observatory is to offer insight into market opportunities for the equipment manufacturers present across the exhibition's four hubs of expertise.
For each country examined, the Observatory will analyse its national investment plans, main challenges for seven application sectors, the main imports and exports of construction equipment and the foreign brands already established on the market.
The Observatory will offer an exclusive analysis of the major construction projects underway and planned for the future to 2025-2030 and of the main market players involved in these projects.
