Linesight is delighted to launch the latest edition of our Global Country Commodity Reports covering Q2 2023. These reports document key construction material pricing trends, as well as provide an outlook for future pricing and supply for 23 countries around the world.
Our research finds that prices for most commodities globally have stabilized, with some on a downward trend. While many countries are experiencing slowed economic growth, sentiment is generally improving, aided by committed government investment in infrastructure and renewable energy. Continued growth in mission critical sectors is being hampered by low availability of specialist labour skills, which is impacting delivery schedules and cost. High interest rates combined with a recalibration in office space demand is impacting commercial investment, and there is an enhanced focus on retrofitting of existing stock to address corporate tenant ESG framework requirements.
Countries featured in the report include Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, UK and US.
