The Housing Developers industry has experienced moderately volatile conditions over the past five years due to the recovery from both the US recession and the collapse of the US housing system. More recently, the industry has recorded exceptionally high growth rates as the residential construction market rebounds alongside increasing consumer incomes and persistently low interest rates. In the next five years, the industry is expected to perform well as disposable income rises and homeownership rates recover. Furthermore, an increase in the number of households is expected to support the industry in the coming years.
