However, the second half of the period was characterized by robust growth fueled by loose monetary policy and increased demand. Ultimately, growth in the second half of the five years to 2014, overpowered first half weakness and, as a result, IBISWorld expects industry revenue to increase steadily in the five years to 2014. Low interest rates coupled with improving economic conditions helped housing starts and private spending on home improvements increase strongly from 2012 onward, benefitting both the new deck construction and remodeling markets.
