Europe is affected first time in the last century by three major factors: the war between Russia
and Ukraine, Covid 19 and Inflation.
Covid 19 was a black swan with important impact on economy and social mobility for around
two years and has triggered severe social and economic disruption around the world, including a
large but short global recession.
In Europe Inflation in dec. 2022 was 9,2% with around 25% in Hungary, 20% in Latvia and
Lithuania an 17% in Estonia and Czechia. Impact on real estate markets is significant and will
change demand and supply for the next period.
The war between Russia and Ukraine affected in the last year an important population all around the Europe. Since Russia’s military aggression in Ukraine in February 2022, Europe has received the largest number of people fleeing war since World War II. Europe provided temporary protection for more than 4 million people fleeing the war in Ukraine and for more than 0,74 million Ukrainian students.
Based on official statistics on 31 December 2022, Poland reported the highest number of Ukrainian beneficiaries of temporary protection with a total of 956 760 (2,5% in total population), followed by Germany (936 375 Ukrainian beneficiaries) and Czech Republic (431 310 or 4% in total population). One important unknown issue is related with people fleeing from Russia; the official European statistics presented the top nationalities of first residence permits issued in EU Member States in 2021 and Russia was 5th with 86.832 in 2021 (vs 61.052 in 2020). Real estate sector was major affected by all this three factors and we look to find academic and industry view about expectations for the next period.
