Windoor Expo Visited Australia Again to Find Out the Key Trends in Construction Market


Window Door Facade Expo China (Windoor Expo in short) organized a fact-finding mission again to DesignBUILD during May 3 to May 5, 2017. For over three decades, DesignBUILD has supported Australia’s architecture, building, construction and design communities, as the leading commercial platform for manufactures and suppliers to showcase new products and meet key industry buyers and specifiers.


According to the "2016 ITA Building Products and Sustainable Construction Top Markets Report" published by the USA's International Trade Administration, construction output in Australia is expected to increase at a rate of 4.7% annually through 2018. Much of the anticipated growth is attributable to government investments in infrastructure improvement and increases in the office building segment due to higher yields on asset prices and better leasing conditions. Low interest rates, a low unemployment rate, and increased investor and consumer confidence also are factors supporting growth.
