The global Repair Construction Market has been predicted to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% until 2020. The North American market, which has become energy independent over the last 5 years, is predicted to see a gradual slope in growth at 6.4% CAGR due to the falling oil revenues. The Asian markets, which are entirely dependent on oil imports, have a higher potential for penetration and are poised to register a growth of 10.5% CAGR (2015-2020), which is much higher when compared to the growth of 7.6% from 2008 to 2014.

After the 2008 economic slowdown, most of the countries started trimming their budgets and big-ticket items were shelved as a concerted effort to reduce spending. Europe is still recovering with many countries’ economies still in the red. However, 2013-14 saw a resurgent Europe and North America pulling through and putting their days of economic austerity behind them. Investments started to pour-in into the construction industry and these investments consequentially repaired the industry, which was on a hiatus.

Falling oil prices has been a boon to countries that import oil. The price of crude oil has dropped over 40% this year and as a result, many countries have benefited from the drop in inflation. Reduced spending on oil imports has allowed governments to use oil savings to boost domestic investments.

Asian economies, being one of the top oil guzzlers, have seen a rise in investment and opportunities. India and China have commissioned a surfeit of projects for construction to boost domestic demand and reduce unemployment. Middle Eastern countries, which form the majority of OPEC countries, have huge foreign exchange reserves and can withstand this slump in prices for an extended period. These Middle Eastern countries have stated that there will be no slowdown in domestic investments and are going ahead with their pipelined projects, and have commissioned more. Their strategy for the past decade has been to diversify their economy from crude oil and gas based revenues; research proves that this strategy has paid them off handsomely.
