Construction Company Financing
Things are looking up for the construction industry. Since it comprises so many diverse groups, the industry has undergone recovery from the economic downturn in fits and starts. Some segments are doing better than others, and even among growth segments, some are growing more quickly than others. But on balance, the financial picture for construction is viewed by industry experts as optimistic.
Construction spending in the U.S. is roughly $1.2 trillion annually. The industry has a significant impact on the general economy but is also vulnerable to broader economic disruptions. But now, alongside the U.S. economy, construction is showing strong signs of rebounding and future growth:
- The unemployment rate for the construction industry declined in October 2017 to an eleven-year low of 4.5 percent.
- Private residential construction is growing, as demand picks up for homes and apartments.
- Private non-residential sectors are also growing. Among the strongest: Power construction, including work on oil and gas fields, pipelines and electricity.
- Public construction shows more mixed results since projects like a highway, street, and school construction are subject to the ups and downs of federal, state and local budgets.
