Housing Developers in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Housing Developers in the US

Operators in the Housing Developers industry in the United States construct new homes on land that is either owned or controlled by the builder rather than by the buyer or investor. Typically, trends in demand for housing stock are dictated by overall economic performance, with consumers demanding new and more luxurious homes during times of prosperity. Economic conditions remained volatile post-recession, particularly within the residential sector. However, as recovery gained steamed, growth for the overall sector and the Housing Developers industry both returned strongly. Over the five years to 2023, growth in the new housing construction market is expected to continue, albeit at a slower pace compared with the previous period.
