The industry's performance is closely tied to the construction market, as property developments often involve demolishing existing buildings and structures and cleaning up sites to make way for new construction. During the downturn, the collapse of the real estate market crippled the construction and demolition markets, causing downstream construction industries to purchase less demolition equipment. A growing economy and rising construction activity will likely result in a corresponding rise in demand for demolition and demolition equipment, driving industry growth over the five years to 2022.
