If a club can not afford it (small city, fanbase), it can play lower leagues.
The SEL capacity minimum is 4k. Short answer is no. The arena boom is somewhat over in Sweden, clubs(actually, the municipalities) have built like crazy the last 10-12 years. I'd estimate there won't be a wave like this for another 25+ years.
