Construction Industry Overview

Growing faster than ever before
The global construction industry has been one of the booming industries, registering a year-on year growth above 7%. Save the COVID-19 crisis in 2020, the industry will maintain growth with the continuation of the development process in developing countries such as China and India, where the migration of people from the rural to urban areas takes place commonly. The construction industry as a whole is very important to the world economic growth. By 2023, the global construction market is expected to grow to about $15.5 billion.
The construction market consists of the sales revenues earned by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that construct buildings or engineering projects (e.g., highways and utility systems). It includes new work, additions, alterations, maintenance, and repairs. The revenues of entities that prepare sites for new construction and those that subdivide land for sale as building sites are included in this market.
