From the construction of power plants, refineries and bridges to the repair and restoration of historic buildings, scaffolding contractors benefit from widespread demand across many markets. Nonetheless, the collapse of the housing market and the subsequent recession brought construction activity in most markets to a near halt, significantly hurting the industry's performance. After experiencing its steepest decline in 2010, however, the Scaffolding Contractors industry began to recover as construction activity resumed, though years of difficult economic conditions pressured profit margins, particularly for smaller operators. Demand from downstream markets is expected to continue increasing over the next five years, providing for an acceleration of industry growth through 2019.
This industry leases, erects and dismantles scaffolding equipment. Scaffolding equipment can be used during construction, painting, exterior remodeling and other construction-related activities that require workers to operate above ground level.
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.
