The state of the building industry is a good proxy for the health of the overall Australian economy. And there is a vital link between building and the strength of the manufacturing sector, with periods of strong, sustained growth in construction often being matched by similarly strong growth in manufacturing.

Australia’s construction industry is one of the largest growing sectors in the country, with work expected to increase by 9.3% in 2018 alone. With such rapid growth, the industry will continue to demand a larger share of the overall GDP, employ more people, and contribute to the larger economy of Australia.
