Global interest rates have remained low for a significant period of time while unemployment rates have dropped in several key geographic markets. The combination of these trends has led to increased building activity in residential and commercial sectors. The market for non-building construction has also increased as countries continue to invest in their infrastructure. While growth rates are not expected to match the construction boom of the early to mid 2000’s, the expected stability of the Building and Construction markets has led to mega-deals, such as the merger of Lafarge and Holcim, as well as several middle-market transactions across the sector.
