The Scaffolding Services industry has faced volatile conditions since the late 2000s, reflecting widely divergent trends in construction markets. The loss of erection work in the lucrative capital city commercial building markets (particularly for high-rise office developments) has been partly offset by the accelerated growth in demand in the infrastructure market and solid growth in apartment projects.
Despite divergent trends in the downstream construction markets, the industry is projected to record solid revenue growth of an annualised 3.3% over the five years through 2014-15 to total $947.0 million.
Scaffolding contractors hire and erect temporary framework used to support people and material in the construction and repair of buildings and other large structures. Services include the planning and preparation of projects, the erection of scaffolding and equipment (i.e. setting of ground levels, bracing of components and the positioning of platforms), the monitoring of scaffolding, and dismantling of scaffolding equipment on the completion of the job.
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.
