Global construction survey 2013: Ready for the next big wave? 

KPMG International’s 2013 Global Construction Survey catches the industry in a more upbeat mood after several years of falling backlogs and tight margins that felt like a hangover following the previous boom. Economic recovery is stimulating manufacturing, while growing urbanization is driving a continued demand for infrastructure in all forms.


Power and energy are essential forces behind such expansion, accelerating the need to extract and transport conventional and unconventional coal and gas, and build new installations for generating traditional and sustainable energy.
