Read: 11/2020, Source

  • According to an IBISWorld U.S. Construction Industry Report, the construction industry worldwide is expected to decline 14.6 percent by year-end 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • But needs related to improvements to health care facilities around the world, the redesign of hotels and airports, and large-scale projects, such as convention centers, will lead the way for billions of dollars of new construction.
  • As tourism, travel, and the hospitality industry will take longer to recover (in some cases, through 2024, according to industry surveys), consumers will be seeking to populate local entertainment venues, such as public parks and waterways, located within a day’s travel of their homes.
