Q3 2024

Global construction markets are forecast to grow in the next 3rd and 4th quarter of this year, this growth will be marginal. However, this is a positive trend when looking back over the last three years. Infrastructure and industrial related construction will be the construction sectors that drives this growth.

Evaluating the Global Construction Industry in 2024 is not any easy task! However, a number of experts / economists and Compass international are reasonably bullish on the remainder of 2024 Construction prospects. 

The chances of a full-blown global recession /economic downturn remains reasonably high as move into the 3rd Q of 2024. On the positive side, the Global Construction sector is showing some signs of growth and is (for the most part) positioned for a recovery from the last lackluster COVID / supply chain years. Rising tensions in the Middle East and the ongoing Russia vs. Ukraine conflict / standoff are potential road blocks to future growth in 2024. However, the Global Construction Industry is resilient and is forecast to reach $11.5 trillion by the years’ end in 2024 and to possibly hit $14 trillion by 2026. Difficult conditions remain in place, the Global Construction industry will continue to face challenges in 2024. The Global Construction industry is expected to grow between 2.8% and 3.4% in the same period.
