The pipeline in Europe is relatively small, totaling US$500.5 billion.

The pipeline is well advanced, with projects in the execution stage accounting for 42% of the total, while projects in the pre-execution stages (design, tender and award) account for a further 18%. Projects in the early stages of pre-planning (announcement and study) and planning are combined to account for 40%. The Middle East and Africa has the most mature pipeline, with 73% of the total value of projects in the execution and pre-execution stages, followed by Europe with 67%. The pipelines in the Americas and Asia-Pacific have higher shares of projects in the early stages, with Asia-Pacific’s pipeline featuring projects in pre-planning and planning with a share of 49%, while the equivalent share of the pipeline in the Americas is 54%.
