Building the walls back up
Though the housing construction market's struggles caused demand for drywall contractors to plummet, a recovery is on the way. Housing starts are anticipated to rise in the coming years, stimulating demand for industry services. Continuing government subsidies for energy-efficient home insulation projects will also keep operators busy. Though demand from the commercial building market will remain low, at least during the short term, demand from institutional buildings like hospitals will cushion revenue.
