Dodge Construction Network Provides Insight on 2022 Construction
Dodge Construction Network, the leading provider of data, analytics in the commercial construction industry, has released a report, Construction Industry Outlook 2022, Adapt and Thrive in an Evolving Market.The report states that higher material prices, shortages of key materials, and a lack of skilled labor will complicate the construction sector’s ability to take full advantage of stronger economic growth.
Dodge Construction Network cites The Producer Price Index, stating that construction materials were 31 percent higher in September 2021 than the previous year. This suggests that material pricing will remain historically high— particularly as infrastructure dollars hit the market.
