Construction is an industry that has weathered the storm over the past few years and now there are green shoots emerging. In states such as Ohio, commercial real estate prices have reached new highs and expansion is forecast across all areas of the sector. This includes growth trends in water supply, transportation and S&WD. Of course, there have been some more challenging trends too, including the labor shortages that have affected the construction sector nationwide, as well as the supply chain issues that many industries have struggled with. Another key trend is the growth in demand for skilled construction workers - job postings are up 43%, which means that the need for workers is currently higher than the supply. This is a trend that looks set to continue for some time, as there is a mismatch between the skill sets that many workers have available and the qualification levels required. Construction activity, especially in areas such as mining in locations like Ohio, looks set to continue to grow throughout the year.
