US Expenditures on Commercial Building Construction to Advance 4.3% Annually in Nominal Terms to 2023

Increasing Spending by Businesses, Governments to Drive Growth

CLEVELAND, Aug. 19, 2019 — (PRNewswire) —  US expenditures on commercial building construction are forecast to advance 4.3% annually in nominal terms through 2023, according to Commercial Building Construction: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Rising consumer spending will spur businesses' expansion and investment in new and improved structures. Rising government revenue will stoke advances for spending on such structures as schools and government offices. The pace of gains is expected to moderate from the faster rebound-fueled growth of the 2012-2018 period, reflecting the extent of the rebound in activity already achieved.
