Construction Market Report Fall 2023

October 24, 2023  /  Market Reports,

After a long period of hyperinflation, the construction industry is seeing prices starting to settle down, albeit with pressures in certain areas.

  • The Construction Confidence Index (CCI) has risen by 6 points to 46 points but is still below 50. A rating above 50 indicates a growing market.
  • The Architectural Billing Index (ABI) has declined in all 4 regions of the county. The current rating is at 44.6, below the growth threshold of 50, indicating a decline in architectural services and a slowing construction market ahead.
  • Interest rates remain high, putting a damper on construction activity in many sectors. The feds indicate they may raise rates ¼ point more in the near future, so it is unlikely that rates will come down until late 2024 or into 2025.
  • Lumber and steel prices are both significantly lower than one year ago.
