100 billion Euro investment potential in the Stockholm region

Stockholm is expanding rapidly. In 2020 the city will have 1 million inhabitants and by 2030, the city will reach1.4 million. To ensure Stockholm's continued economic growth, more than EUR 100 billion in investments in the region are planned by 2021.

Stockholm is experiencing one of its most intensive building periods since the big urbanization of the 1960s. This means increased demand for construction companies, together with with new markets for suppliers of green products and services, sustainable construction and new building methods. The biggest investment is in the building of new housing, with a total value of EUR 36 billion. Investments will be also be made in several community development projects where the railway and tramway are major areas of expansion with plans to invest EUR 9 billion.
