Every construction project in GlobalData's database is assigned a score of between 5 and -5 based on its current progress, a score that is continually updated over time. These are then weighted by the value of each project in order to arrive at overall scores for countries, regions and sectors.

That score puts eastern Europe in eighth place out of 11 regions, and is a decrease on its score from December 2021 (0.67) when it ranked in sixth place.

One reason for eastern Europe's relatively poor performance in the index is its energy and utilities sector, which scores just 0.42, putting it in eighth place out of 11 regions worldwide.

Eastern Europe's residential sector, by contrast, has performed somewhat better, with a score of 1.2 (putting it in first place globally).

Within eastern Europe, the problems in the construction sector are most significant in Ukraine, which scores just -0.79 in the index. The situation in Hungary, however, is somewhat better with a score of 1.39.

The Construction Project Momentum Index

GlobalData's Construction Project Momentum Index is based on analysis of thousands of individual construction projects around the world.

Each project is continually monitored for updates, with updates indicating progress increasing the project's score, while updates indicating delays or cancellations reduce the score. The score always sits between 5, the best possible score, and -5, the worst.

The scores for individual projects are then weighted based on their significance in order to create combined indices for each region or sector.

Events that can reduce a project's score include the project being cancelled or put on hold, delays, the rejection of applications or tender bids, or the reduction of the project's scope.

Events that can increase a project's score in the index, by contrast, include the completion or commencement of construction, the awarding of major contracts, or the approval of applications.
