The construction and manufacturing industry has responded very well post the pandemic and has come out strong during the recovery period. The market, however, experienced several challenges, such as labor shortages, rising costs, supply chain disruptions and project delays. Although many of these challenges will persist in the short term, our overall outlook on the industry remains optimistic. The industry is also at the cusp of a new era. Smart cities, sustainable construction, deployment of new technologies, mergers and acquisitions, emerging markets, government regulations, etc. - these wide-ranging changes are driving companies to adapt to disruption, rethink their growth strategies and create a new roadmap for the future of the industry.
