The construction industry plays a significant role in determining economic growth in Australia as it is the fourth largest contributor to our Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
The industry dominates both the private and public sector with their three main areas of activity consisting of residential building, non-residential building and engineering construction.
The construction industry is also the third largest employing industry in Australia and it has frequently experienced skilled worker shortages. As a result, the Australian construction industry has relied on skilled overseas workers to supplement its Australian based labour force.
Additionally, when looking at the construction industry it is necessary to also consider business investments and the strong demand for migrants seeking to invest in the industry. This is largely due to a strong decline in public infrastructure funding and a strong increase of private investment into Australia. With the increase in population growth, industry activity, consumer sentiment, and interests rates the construction industry is expected to continue expanding and developing.
