Sky's the limit: The value of construction is forecast to improve at a faster rate than the overall economy

The massive collapse of construction markets left the Scaffolding Contractors industry at its lowest point in recent history. With the recovery of these markets, however, demand for industry services underwent a resurgence. The value of construction is forecast to improve at a faster rate than the overall economy. The improving economy will foster growth in construction, as developers gain easier access to credit, corporations have the cash to fund new buildings and retailers have the need to construct additional stores.

    Over the past five years, construction activity, particularly residential and commercial construction, has returned to strong growth. This has greatly aided the Scaffolding Contractors industry.

While this widespread demand has historically benefited the industry by mitigating declines within specific sectors, investment across key building markets was tepid during the early recovery.
