About the Webinar

"The US housing market leads the way." What does this mean? Well, if you understand the direction of the housing construction market, you can make a strong assumption that the US economy will move in a similar direction. Luckily, there is more good news to come in the housing market, and the leading indicators are providing positive signals for the remainder of the year. However, our expectations for the single-family market and the multi-family market are very different. In this webinar, we will explore leading indicators and forecasts for both segments and highlight the opportunities.

Unlike the housing market, nonresidential construction does not "lead the way." In our analysis at ITR Economics, we find that nonresidential activity often lags not only housing but also the general economy. Thus, the outlook for this segment of the construction market is very different than for housing. We will take a deeper dive into understanding which leading indicators provide foresight into the nonresidential segment. We will also highlight the geographic regions and vertical markets likely to provide greater growth opportunities in the future.
