Industry Analysis &; Industry Trends
The Demolition and Wrecking industry has been recovering from the effects of the recession, which drastically reduced demand for construction services. However, business has begun to pick up, and the industry is forecast to grow past its prerecession size. As the value of residential and nonresidential construction increases, the need for demolition for new structures increases as well. In addition, land development and construction markets are forecast to grow rapidly as economic growth encourages the construction of new retail and commercial space.
