FMI_Construction_Outlook_2015FMI predicts total construction put in place (CPIP) will grow 8 percent in 2015. According to FMI, this prediction supports the company’s earlier forecast that CPIP will top $1 trillion in 2015.

The sectors expected to experience the highest growth rate are lodging construction with 16 percept CPIP growth; commercial construction with 15 percent CPIP growth; manufacturing construction with 11 percent CPIP growth; office construction with 11 percent CPIP growth; and residential construction with 9 percent CPIP growth.

“The current growth cycle appears to be broad-based and sustainable,” says Randy Giggard, managing director of research services for FMI. “Most of the new construction activity is in the private sector. Projects dependent on government spending, especially those involving infrastructure, continue to be at the mercy of politics.”
