Forecasts towards 2026 – residential sector
A growing backlog in new production?

Josep Ramon Fontana

Head of market research, ITeC

Josep Ramon Fontana is Head of Market Research at ITeC, The Catalonia Institute of Construction Technology, and editor of the Spanish country report for Euroconstruct. After 30+ years in the construction sector, he is still struggling to understand the intricacies of this market. His PhD in architecture has given him some hints of how building materials work, but not a single clue why companies are lured into such a tricky and volatile business, never mind how some of them become successful. He will probably never solve these mysteries, but that doesn’t stop him trying to make sense of this bizarre sector and do some storytelling around it.
