Employment Rate and Population Growth Propelling the Growth in Construction Sector

The construction industry is expected to grow over the forecast period (2020-2025). Population and employment rates are fundamental factors in the construction industry. One of the most distinctive features of the Australian market is how both these factors move in tandem. Many of the factors that propelled new home building to such high levels are still in place. The population growth rate in Australia has been almost constant at around 1.4% to 1.7% over the study period. During the year 2018, the population growth in Australia stood at 1.57 %, increasing from 24.78 million to 25.17 million. With the increase in population, the need for better transportation facilities, housing facilities, energy resources rises, increasing the constructions in residential, commercial, and civil constructions. Of the gain in population, a huge percentage was accounted for by overseas migration. This is an important feature because migrants tend to be concentrated in the 20-40 age group, a factor that has a strong and immediate impact on housing demand. The employment numbers also describe a great deal about the performance of the construction industry. With more people being employed, the need for better social life increases, also ramping up the constructions in non-residential space.
