The Home Builders industry experienced a dramatic decline in revenue stemming from the subprime mortgage crisis, the bursting real estate bubble and the collapse of credit markets. Following the cyclical pattern of boom-and-bust that is traditional of economic cycles, improvements in the general economy will support industry growth. The industry will also benefit from improvements in housing demand, lending activity and real estate values over the five years to 2020.
Industry operators primarily construct single-family homes, where units are separated by ground-to-roof walls and have no units above or below.
