Over the five years to 2015, failure to enact long-term funding for surface infrastructure at the federal level has continued to hold back the Bridge and Elevated Highway Construction industry. Consequently, industry revenue declined over the past five years. However, in the five years to 2020, industry revenue is expected to rise, as healthier government budgets, replacements and repairs of deficient structures and rising demand from a growing population spur industry growth. Nevertheless, elevated unemployment and a slow housing recovery will continue to pressure the industry.
This industry comprises companies that primarily engage in the construction of bridges and elevated highways. These types of projects include new work, reconstruction and repairs. This industry does not include road and highway construction activity.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
