2013 Construction Forecast Up 8 Percent, FMI Reports

on .

The 2013 forecast for construction-put-in-place is up 8 percent―$918 million―over 2012, according to consulting and investment firm, FMI. Even with the strong improvement, however, FMI does not expect annual construction to go above the trillion-dollar mark until 2015.

 

Residential buildings have shown the biggest improvement. While the single-family sector grew 23 percent in 2012, multifamily construction improved 47 percent last year, and FMI expects it to increase another 31 percent in 2013.

 

Commercial, lodging and office construction are also starting to pick up, with FMI making the following nonresidential construction predictions, by sector:

 

•Lodging: After three years of steep declines, the market for lodging construction came back a strong 25 percent in 2012, and FMI expects another 10 percent growth in construction-put-in-place for 2013.

•Office: Office construction is finally showing a solid, but slow, turnaround with 5 percent growth in 2012 and another 5 percent increase expected in 2013.

•Commercial: Commercial construction continues into its third year of good growth, moving up 8 percent in 2012. It is expected to grow another 7 percent in 2013, reaching $50.3 billion.

•Healthcare: Healthcare construction was moderate in 2012, growing only 3 percent, but FMI expects it to pick up 8 percent in 2013.

•Manufacturing: Manufacturing construction increased 17 percent in 2012. It will continue with another 6 percent increase for 2013 through 2014.

•Power-related: Construction for the power market grew 9 percent in 2012 and will continue to grow between 8 percent and 9 percent through 2017, according to FMI.

    GLASSPEX INDIA – International Exhibition for Glass – Production Processing 
    Products – will be held for the third time from 20 to 22 March 2013 in Hall V of 
    the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre in Mumbai. Companies across the
    entire glass industry can register now. 
    This highly successful exhibition  for the  glass  industry has  already  become a 
    fixture in the international trade fair arena. At the previous edition in 2011 176 
    exhibitors from 19  countries presented the latest products and technologies in 
    glass production, finishing and applications to over 4,000 international trade 
    visitors. 
    The participating exhibitors  – including renowned companies such as Bottero, 
    DSF Refractories, Emhart Glass, Grenzebach, Hindustan National Glass, SaintGobain SEFPRO, Shamvik Glasstech, Bassra Machine Tools, Den Breven, 
    CUMI, IAG, Gujarat Borosil, K-bond, Techno Trade Links  and Zippe 
    Industrieanlagen – unanimously praised the excellent organisation of the event 
    by  Messe Düsseldorf India  and  the high calibre of visitors that made 
    GLASSPEX INDIA an outstanding communication platform for exchange among 
    experts from the glass fraternity. 
    The forthcoming event will also follow on from this success because India is 
    among the world’s fastest growing markets and a highly attractive economic 
    region, especially for the glass industry. Rising population figures on the 
    subcontinent, a higher standard of living and the associated demand for 
    consumer goods have generated rising demand in the construction sector, the 
    automotive industry as well as in the packaging, electrical and pharmaceutical 
    industries – areas where glass plays a prominent role as a raw material. 2
    At GLASSPEX  INDIA exhibitors can obtain selected exposure to the Indian 
    market and make new business contacts  – banking on Messe Düsseldorf (as 
    the organiser of the world’s most important glass trade fair glasstec). The 
    AIGMF (All India Glass Manufacturers’ Federation) and VDMA e.V. (Association 
    of German Machinery and Plant Manufacturers) provide their support as strong 
    cooperation partners. 
    The 10
    th
    International Glass Technology Conference of the AIGMF titled 
    “Managing Sustainable Growth” will be held parallel to  GLASSPEX  INDIA in
    2013. This renowned conference provides an ideal complement  for to  the 
    content of the trade fair thereby making it even more attractive to visitors.      
    The 3
    rd
    Glass Performance Days India (GPD),  where current trends  on the 
    Indian  glass market as well as glass architecture and solar technology are 
    discussed, will round off the wide range of side events for GLASSPEX INDIA.
