NEW 5 YEAR BUILDING FORECASTS ONLINE LATE MAY 2014
After bottoming out at $80.6 billion in 2012/13, building activity in Australia is set to post healthy growth. The improvement will favour some sectors in particular, and will vary by state, making it critical to understand where the opportunities – and risks – will be over the next 5 years and beyond. Residential building is leading the way and will reach new highs, but a shift toward multi-residential development is changing the industry. Non-residential building is forecast to improve, backed by a burgeoning pipeline of projects. Home renovations are anticipated to return to growth.

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 miscellaneous building
