Asia Pacific to Remain at the Forefront Stoked by Rapid Urbanization
Asia Pacific is set to grow considerably in the coming years because of the presence of a well-established construction sector in this region. The developing nations, such as India, China, and South Korea are the major contributors to growth. Industry consolidations and rapid urbanization in these countries would also affect the market positively. However, COVID-19 pandemic has reduced the growth rate. As per our research, Hong Kong’s construction industry recently laid off approximately 50,000 employees on account of the disruptions in the supply of labor and raw material from China.
