NEW 5 YEAR FORECASTS NOW PUBLISHED (DEC 2015)

Residential building activity is at historic highs but the industry has changed, with more multi-residential dwellings going up and fewer first home buyers. What does it mean for your business, and where will the best opportunities be found? Should you brace for a slump in high rise apartments? Is your state positioned to ride out a rise in interest rates? Will population growth continue to slow? How many dwellings will be built a year from now? Looking further out, where will the building cycle be beyond 2020?

Non-residential building will present fresh opportunities in 2016 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?
