EDA: Demolition remains stable despite challenges of 2020
By Steve Ducker19 August 2021
The European Demolition Industry Report 2021, a new edition of the now traditional study prepared by European Demolition Association (EDA) through the responses of professionals from all over Europe, is now available.
As always, contractors and suppliers from all over the continent have responded to the relevant surveys over the last few months. These surveys have been simplified this year to make it easier for all the professionals who wanted to share their vision and opinion on the current situation of the sector.
The results of the European Demolition Industry Report 2021 include general data on the sector and on specific aspects of the previous year (2020): income, volume of work and investment.
In addition, and as is also traditional, it includes a series of forecasts for the current year (2021). All of them divided and differentiated between contractors and suppliers.
The European Demolition Industry Report 2021 is available online from the EDA .
The association said: “Despite 2020 being a challenging year for everyone, the results of the European Demolition Industry Report 2021 show that the sector has remained strong and stable.
“For example, in terms of the evolution of the workforce, suppliers reported that 2020 was stable and that, according to 17% of respondents, there was a slight increase of between 5% and 15%.
“There is also mention, at the contractor level, of a stable 2020 in terms of turnover, investment and equipment. These professionals have pointed out that, in those cases where there has been a reduction, it has been significantly reduced (between 5% and 15%).”
