Study focuses on the fact that populations of EU15 countries are getting older. Thus housing related needs of this ageing population are gaining ever more weight. This is a great challenge and an oppurtunity for the construction sector as it is important to build new residential houses and to renovate the existing buildings so that the buildings are cabaple of fulfilling these needs. The study examines this new market potential from the poist of view of the housing stock and the ageing segment.
