The Fence and Scaffolding Manufacturing industry experienced volatile conditions over the five years to 2016. Demand for industry products primarily comes from new construction and repair and renovation activities, which underwent recovery in the years after the subprime mortgage crisis and subsequent recession. With strong gains in the residential, commercial, utilities and bridge construction markets, demand for industry products underwent a revival. However, these gains in the latter half of the five-year period were not enough to mitigate the losses suffered in earlier years. The industry's continued recovery will depend on the level of construction activity over the next five years. A boost in per capita disposable income and strengthening nonresidential and residential construction is forecast to help revenue, as demand from contractors across these markets drives fence sales and scaffolding for repairs and renovations.
