While much of the talk this week still centers around the pending infrastructure bill and what Congress will pass (if anything), FMI’s team is also paying attention to several factors disrupting the demand for real estate.
Global supply-chain disruptions have disrupted the engineering and construction industry, with all eyes now watching the horizon. A boom is underway, but firms can't get enough of the materials they need in hand, nor can they find the staff to build once they do have supplies.
The U.S. is now at or above the 25-year average for growth in construction, following a 76% increase in construction spending from 2010 to 2020. Shortages in construction materials and labor combined with continued supply chain fragility have constrained growth for some parts of the engineering and construction industry.
