Construction & Specialty Contracting
Construction companies, already challenged to keep pace with demand, face heightened pressure in the face of low interest rates and government support for housing and infrastructure spending. Post-pandemic, the industry could see lasting shifts in terms of office space and residential housing trends. Increased costs for labor and material mean construction companies face pressure to reduce costs in other ways.
M&A strategies will likely focus on innovative construction materials, automation, and efficiencies, along with resiliency to changing market demands.
