Construction Industry Forecasting

Are there any notable cost increases (building materials, interest rates, etc.) that will affect this year’s forecast?

Higher-than-average inflation in 2014 for most building materials is expected. The rise in prices is due to greater demand, which is in turn due to increased construction activity.

For commercial construction, financing remains restrictive and the energy outlook has changed dramatically. Gypsum products have sustained a nearly 40 percent price increase since the beginning of 2012. Lumber and plywood prices are more than 15 percent higher than they were at the start of 2012.
