Home Builders in the US

Over the five years to 2016, the Home Builders industry is expected to grow at a rapid rate not seen since the housing bubble of the last decade. Such robust growth comes in the wake of increasing per capita disposable income, accommodative interest rates, falling commodity prices and improving overall macroeconomic conditions. In the coming years, the industry is expected to continue its expansion over the next five years, albeit at a slower pace, as the housing market normalizes.

Industry operators primarily construct single-family homes, where units are separated by ground-to-roof walls and have no units above or below. The industry also includes remodeling of houses and other residential buildings. Industry operators are general contractors, design-build companies and single-family construction management companies acting as general contractors and builders.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
