Market Report, "United States Infrastructure Report Q1 2016", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Jan 18 2016

The US construction sector will begin to slow in 2016 as the housing market starts to normalise following a steep recover y over recent years. Whil e infrastructure industry value will sustain its recovery it will not be enough to offset a slowdown.

The US construction industry will begin to slow in 2016, but still post a strong growth rate, as the residential construction market continues to boom. We forecast a headline growth rate of 2.3% for 2016, down from an estimate 4.5% in 2015. We expect this slowdown to continue, with the industry to average only 1.2% over our 10-year forecast period, as the residential sector normalises. Infrastructure presents one of the few positives for the industry, with oil and gas pipelines and transport infrastructure presenting a few bright spots of activity.

Key Trends And Developments

The residential building industry will continue to be the key driver of construction industry growth moving into 2016. Leading indicators, including housing starts, permits, and homebuilder confidence all point to the boom that picked up in H215 to continue into the next year. While momentum will be maintained throughout 2016, we believe it will eventually slow as base effects, increases in mortgage rates and high prices begin to drag on growth.
