Australia’s Construction Industry Sector


Construction sector is an important factor of the overall Australian economy. However, being closely related to the mining construction sector, an increase in construction industry projects heavily depends on the resources. And since the mining industry has reached its peak and total activity is predicted to decline, so will the construction sector weaken in 2014 and 2015.

This however will not affect the construction equipment sector as contractors, small and large businesses and industry leaders, all know the importance of quality construction equipment for increased productivity. Therefore, even though number of construction projects will decline for more than 3.5% in 2014, total construction work will remain high due to long-dated contracts. Thus, the total value of construction equipment is forecast to rise and continue this trend in 2015 as well.
