Global

The global economy is the economy of all the world's countries. The total world population now stands at over 7 billion and the global unemployment rate is 9% with approximately half the world's population paid less than $2 a day. 

The global economy is picking up again after five years of uncertaintity and slow economic growth. The IMF is predicting global growth of 3.7% in 2014 rising to 3.9% in 2015. However, much uncertainity remains. Low inflation in developed economies means that these economies take longer to deal with debt burdens and are at increases risk of deflation. 

The second half of 2013 saw growth in the US and European economies (particularly UK, Germany and France).  

Growth in the US has been helped by cheaper energy from fracking , renewables and more oil and gas exploration. This cheaper energy is bring manufacturing jobs back to the US and helping to boost domestic demand. Recent winter weather conditions have hampered growth in the construction sector and have slowed demand in the construction equipment sector which saw exports drop by 25% in 2013. Growth should pick up in this sector with continued federal investment in infrastructure, new residential house builds and refurbishment and the energy boom.

In Europe growth is expected to be uneven with growth being slow in stressed economies such as Portugal and Greece but confidence picking up in UK, Ireland and even Spain showing some improvement.

Developing economies such as China and India will continue to have strong growth in 2014 and 2015. China has benefitted from increased investment with the Chinese govenment now focused on quality growth of 7.5% in 2014. India which is less reliant on exports expects growth of 5.4% in 2014 and 6.4% in 2015.

Much uncertainity still remains in the global economy with greater optimism needed to stabilise growth.

Building and Construction

General building construction refers generally to the building of infrastructure projects, residential projects and commercial and industrial projects.

According to the CBI (Confederation of British Industry) the construction industry in the UK contributes almost £90billion to the UK economy every year, employing about 10% of the workforce. 2014 is seeing an increase in the number of commercial and industrial as well as infrastructure construction projects in the UK leading to much needed growth in the industry.

Spending on construction in the US totaled $930 billion in 2013 according to the US Census Bureau. This expenditure was broken down into public (of which $266billion was spent) and private (of which $664billion was spent). This is positive for an industry which has been in a slump since 2009.

Research and Experts have an extensive range of reports on general building construction with information on market trends, leading companies and market forecasts which help support the decision making process.

Heavy Construction

Heavy or civil construction projects involve the adding of infrastructure to an already built environment. These construction projects usually deal with public properties. These projects are usually comissioned by local or national government agencies and are usually carried out for the public good. The most common type of heavy construction is highway and road construction. This can include building entirely new roads, expanding existing highways, or building or repairing rail transport facilities.

Research and Experts supply industry reports, project profiles and company information covering all aspects of the heavy construction industry globally.
