Keynote: Potential impacts of COVID-19 on US Construction Market

Richard Branch, Chief Economist, Dodge Data & Analytics

The impact of COVID-19 has been felt by just about every profession and industry–and the construction industry has certainly not been immune. A rough calculation suggests that nearly 30% of products typically used in US building construction are imported from China, making that country the largest single supplier to the US. Known for his industry-leading construction data and analytics, Chief Economist of Dodge Data Richard Branch will share his perspectives on the US construction outlook as a result of COVID-19, including how a slowdown in economic growth may impact construction starts, how global supply chain disruptions may cause a change in the future of construction, and what the design and construction industry may experience in terms of decline and re-growth over the next 18 months.
