The annual report on the world’s most valuable engineering & construction brands

Amongst the developed nations, the biggest growth is expected in the United States, whereas growth prospects in Europe remain rather bleakWestern European construction market is expected to be 5% smaller in 2025 than it was at its peak in 2007. Swiss ABB is this year’s biggest loser, falling 16% to US$4.5 billion, and the European housing bubble has undercut investors’ incentive to fund housing construction projects.


Larsen & Toubro is the biggest riser this year on the back of significant investment by India’s Modi government in all its core sectors. Its brand value rose by 36% this year to US$3.2 billion
Key  engineering and construction brands, including Holcim and Lafarge have already started leveraging these megatrends by disposing of assets in Europe and investing more in Asia and other growth markets. 2014 saw collective brand values across the sector rise by 4% and enterprise values rise by 10%, with four of the five fastest rising brands being Chinese.
