The legions of economists and analysts who churn out forecasts for our consideration do not have a great track record, it must be said. How many saw the worst recession in living memory coming? Very few, bar the occasional contrarian. However, as everyone in the construction industry looks to fine-tune their business model for the coming year, it’s impossible not to notice the construction industry forecasts which swirl around us.
If you are a construction worker or a company that employs such workers, you may be concerned about where the industry is heading. You may also wonder about the current trends and what it will mean for you in the next year or in five or 10 years.
