Munich Strategy Construction Index


  • The MCX is an interactive tool for understanding the performance of companies in the construction sector. It provides insights on the global capital markets for construction companies.
  • The index covers over 100 manufacturers, distributors and service providers in the construction industry worldwide.
  • It includes only companies whose core business is construction. Munich Strategy has ensured that each region, segment and size is sufficiently represented in the index. Thus, the MCX is the first index to provide a real-time representation of the construction industry as a whole.


  • The MCX starts at 100 points on January 1st, 2000, which allows insight into macro-trends and cyclicality of the construction industry.
  • Daily change is calculated by means of change in total (free float) market capitalization of all included companies.
  • The tool allows comparison between different subsets of the index.


Munich Strategy derives implications based on MCX benchmarks on industry and company level. Areas for action are identified through the analysis of performance deltas: Who outperforms the index? Who defies a downturn? What’s the impact of macro trends on a segment level? What are the regional differences?
