United States construction spending increase 0.80% to $1.30 trillion during the month of November 2018, according to data just published by the U.S. Census Bureau. This compared to consensus estimates of a 0.20% increase during the month. The November 2018 results showed the strongest surge in spending since April 2018.
The rebound in spending comes after particularly weak results in September 2018, which saw spending decline 1.80% to $1.28 trillion. According to Trading Economics, “construction spending in the United states averages 0.45% from 1964 until 2018, reaching an all-time high of 5.90% in April of 1978 and a record low of -4.80% in February of 1975.”
Analysts are estimating that construction spending will only continue to grow for the next several years. According to analysts at Statista, total United States construction spending is forecast to reach $1.53 trillion in 2022. This estimate represents a growth of around 18% between 2018-2022.
One company that will likely be a major benefactor from the growth in U.S. construction spending is Innovest Global, Inc. (OTC Pink: IVST) and its Construction & Building Materials division.
