    Contractors in the Fence Construction industry design, build and maintain fences for residential, institutional and nonbuilding clients. Industry operators perform new construction; reconstruction and modernization; repairing; and cleaning work. Over the five years to 2016, industry revenue is expected to grow. Due to the lingering effects of recession, industry revenue remained volatile at the start of the five-year period. However, with the recovery of both residential and nonresidential construction segments, the industry has grown robustly in recent years, albeit from an unusually low starting base. Over the five years to 2021, revenue for the industry is projected to rise.

    This industry has relatively low barriers to entry. Contractors are generally required to hold industry-based certifications to operate, but for most activities undertaken by this industry the relevant certifications can be easily obtained through completion of short courses. The initial start-up costs required to enter most segments are considered relatively low and involve mainly rudimentary construction tools and equipment (e.g., ladders and power tools). The requirement for more sophisticated capital equipment input, generally for concrete fence construction, is typically met through leasing equipment on a piecemeal basis or through subcontracting work to specialists.
