This year, construction industry fundamentals are signaling a fast start to the building and remodeling season. Unlike last year’s weak sentiment, which turned out to be a “false negative” for the construction industry, product distributors and producers should be ramping up inventories and offerings for a fast start to 2020.

DuckerFrontier’s Building and Construction experts recently attended the International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, NV. IBS is the largest annual light construction show in the world, bringing together more than 1,400 top manufacturers and suppliers worldwide.

While the building and construction industry is not known for its rapid change, recent developments and trends have taken hold in the areas of smart building, digitalization, prefabrication, and products as a service. Watch the short video below to learn more about trends from the International Builders’ Show, such as:

  • A return to bold colors and fresh designs
  • Innovation in construction practices due to the skilled labor shortage
  • The emergence of panelized construction
  • And more!
