The Housing Developers industry has experienced dramatically volatile conditions over the past five years due to the continued effects of the US recession and subsequent recovery. The bursting of the real estate bubble precipitated high unemployment, low disposable income and a falling homeownership rate over the five years to 2014. In the coming years, the Housing Developers industry is forecast to record strong growth as the industry recovers from the depths of the housing crisis and overall economic expansion favors residential construction.
