Crack in the wall: Growth has been limited by slower commercial construction activity

Operators in the Concrete Construction Product Manufacturing industry produce a range of concrete products for construction purposes including precast panels and prestressed box culverts. The construction sector is considered the most important downstream market for concrete product manufacturers and, in turn, cyclical investment and activity trends in construction markets can stem volatility in industry sales. Over the five years through 2018-19, revenue is forecast to increase at a compound annual rate of 7.6%.

While a supportive policy backdrop for the housebuilding and civil engineering markets has given impetus to spending on concrete products, economic recovery and more lenient credit conditions encouraged new commercial investment. As a result, industry revenue is forecast to increase at a compound annual rate of 7.6% over the five-year period through 2018-19...purchase to read more.
