Non-residential construction market

There are various drivers that impact the non-residential construction market and can be highly dependent on the sector. Demand for leisure travel is expected to increase due to low unemployment and income growth, projecting a promising lodging construction market. The growth in the office building market is largely being guided by corporate relocations and the lack of vacant spaces in major metropolitans. The overall commercial construction market has received increased spending due to growth in e-commerce, gas prices, and interest rates.
