Future of Home Building Industry in Australia

Future of Home Building Industry in Australia

Business Insider Australia published a very sobering article about the building industry:

“It will be biblical”: The construction industry is bracing for failed businesses and half-finished homes after the boom.

Key points from the article:

  • The boom in the construction industry will be followed by a bust, the industry warns.
  • As the price of materials soar, delays blow out, and shortages sting, most in the sector aren’t making profits despite the oversupply of work.
  • The Association of Professional Builders believes as many as 60% of operators are losing money currently, with many due to fail early next year.
