U.S. Construction Industry by the Numbers

The construction industry tends to mirror the greater United States economy and political landscape; the ability to invest in new ventures and structures reflects a growing economy and market stability.

Though the cost of materials will continue to fluctuate in large part due to tariffs and trade uncertainty, the industry is expected to grow at a steady rate at least in the next few years through 2023.1
