It shows that following a difficult 2020 due to the outbreak of the pandemic, there was a return to growth in 2021.

“The reopening of most European economies after the first quarter of 2021 proved beneficial for rental ‎activity as construction was able to pick up and other sectors of the economy also reopened,” said ERA.

“The performance throughout the rest of the year improved in most markets and now points to a solid ‎growth forecast for 2021, mainly in Southern Europe and the UK, which were the worst-hit regions, while ‎growth in Nordic countries and Eastern Europe remains more constrained.‎”

ERA said the pandemic continues to hamper the recovery in some ‎markets, both directly and indirectly, however.

At the same time, further significant growth is expected in the short term.
