Statista Dossier about the market size of the U.S. construction industry

The United States remains one of the biggest construction markets in the world, making up around ten percent of global construction spending. How did this industry fare in 2020 and what is its outlook? This Statista Dossier looks specifically at the overall market size of the construction industry in the country, including its segments of residential buildings, non-residential buildings, and nonbuildings. The figures shown here include, among others, overall spending, as well building permits and the country's biggest construction companies.

This particular Dossier aims to provide an overview of the entire market. Statista offers other Dossiers, however, which focus more in-depth information on specific segments. These include:
