The Construction division has endured widely divergent trends in downstream markets over the past five years. Subdued trends have prevailed in the building markets, while demand surged to record levels in the non-building construction market before winding back in recent years due to project completion. Contractors specialising in heavy engineering construction projects (e.g. structural steel erection and site preparation contractors) have benefited from the unprecedented private investment in mineral and energy developments and robust public investment in telecommunications and road infrastructure.
The division includes firms primarily involved in the construction of buildings, roads, railroads, irrigation projects, harbour or river works, water infrastructure, gas infrastructure, sewerage infrastructure, stormwater drains, electricity infrastructure, other transmission lines, pipelines, oil refineries and civil engineering projects. It also includes firms that carry out repairs and renovation, mine site preparation, demolitions or excavations and utilities installation.
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.
