UPDATE AVAILABLE NOW! 

Residential building activity is set to surpass previous records in the next few years. The industry is changing, with more multi-residential dwellings going up. What does it mean for your business, and where will the best opportunities be found? Will New South Wales keep leading the way, or is another state poised to surge ahead? How many high rise apartments are in the pipeline? Will population growth continue? When will interest rates rise, and by how much? Looking further out, where will the building cycle be by 2020?

Non-residential building will present fresh opportunities in 2015 and beyond, backed by a pipeline of projects and improving economic conditions, yet some sectors will benefit more than others. When will returning confidence boost private sector investment in commercial & industrial building? Which markets are undersupplied and set to experience solid expansion? And can growth opportunities still be found in the social & institutional building, despite public sector funding constraints?

Building in Australia provides:

  • Annual forecasts of building activity to 2019, taking into account the building cycle, then two five-year average forecasts for the ten years to 2029, which will give an assessment of the long-term underlying demand for each building sector in light of long-term economic and demographic trends
  • Analysis of the economic environment and projections, including interest rates
  • Analysis of trends in demographic factors and their impact on the underlying demand for dwelling and non-dwelling building
  • Forecasts of the value of building commencements by state, in current and constant prices, including total dwellings, alterations and additions to dwellings and non-dwelling building
  • Forecasts of dwelling approvals, commencements and completions for houses and other dwellings (flats, units and town houses) covering private and government sectors for each state
  • Forecasts of median house prices for each capital city
  • Forecasts of the value of non-dwelling building commencements in constant prices by state for each sector: offices, shops, hotels, factories, education, health, religion, entertainment, recreation and other
