The building and construction industry was hit particularly hard during the recession. Throughout the downturn, projects were left half completed and the stunning cityscapes we all envisaged became desolate wastelands of untouched properties, office blocks and commercial buildings. Plans and blueprints were tossed to the wayside and even the most established of building supply companies and retail chains encountered tough times.

But with every downturn comes a recovery and the industry has made a stellar comeback. Today, the building supplies industry in the United States alone is worth a staggering $60bn and the construction industry as a whole is forecast to grow over 70% in the next decade. With global construction output set to double to almost $15 trillion by 2025, the industry is predicted to grow at an incredible rate in the future. So there is little doubt that the industry has suffered but the resulting period of recovery has made it one of the strongest and most profitable.

I'm the Marketing Manager here at sales-i and being in marketing I obviously love crayons and of course I have a toy Chewbacca on my desk (fully equipped with the 'Maaaaaarh' noise! I have worked in the technology industry for over 7 years and have a good grasp on what's happening in the industry. I also enjoy* the technical side of software development. *The term 'enjoy' relates to the very few occasions where the techy side actually goes to plan, otherwise replace with the term 'gets frustrated'.
