Changing M&A activity: for the first time since 2012, the percentage of cross-border transactions and diversification transactions dropped. This trend break indicates a renewed focus of European construction companies on local markets and their core business. 

Disruptive innovations: even though the construction industry is generally considered as a traditional industry in which innovation is limited, the use and developments of new technologies in the construction sector is finally growing. This trends seems to be about the same in most European construction markets - mainly conducted by larger construction companies.
