Construction Market Trends for 2014

The greatest method to define the construction industry for 2014 is to paraphrase the great Bette Davis, “fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy ride!” As global economies progressively recover from the Great Recession and infrastructure spending raises, 2014 signifies a intermediate year for the industry. Global construction, led by Brazil and Central America, looks to be poised for a positive growth year while, lessees will remain their push to rejuvenate construction assets that have continued on month-to-month rentals throughout the recent cycle. 

Contrary to this, as foreseen by Axis Capital Equipment, Singapore, the explosive growth in China, Jakarta Indonesia and the Pacific Rim has cooled. Whereas their domestic construction market is remains estimated in the $2.1 trillion range, Chinese construction development grew at only a 12.4 percent rate, as compared to the further than 20 percent rate it had been growing at since 2008. Chinese housing mandate has steadied and the Chinese government remains to prop up the declining construction industry to reserve jobs for the more than 43 million people employed in construction-related industries.

Locally, the U.S. saw a bit of a resurgence in residential building in 2013, with a highest of nearly 1.1 million new homes in November, which was the highest monthly total since February 2008. As a bellwether for the construction market as a whole, this presents a very positive sign of continued recovery.

The great demand for well-maintained used equipment has led contractors to assess their under-utilized asset pool more carefully. This action will drive chances in the “trade-in/trade-up” market. Contractors comprehend that they can easily monetize their under-utilized or non-essential equipment to aid bolster their working capital. This, in turn, provides lessors the opportunity to exploit asset values by financing the trade-ups whereas providing a higher trade-in value on the used equipment. Lessors who have enjoyed lengthy month-to-month renewals should be prepared for an influx of off-lease equipment as we move into Q3 and Q4.

Another area of concern is the level of technical knowledge required to uphold equipment. The classy emission recollects systems necessitate a skillset that does not occur outside North America. While this will be addressed by training and education, the learning curve for third world countries is significant. The good news is, given the higher price points and potential pitfalls of equipment will see a rise in value as global buying pressure drives up the value of other equipment.

All in all, 2014 looks to be a promising year for the construction equipment market. Sellers will have the opportunity to sell underutilized equipment and a growing demand for well-maintained used equipment will keep prices elevated, pushing values higher.

Quality Leasing Capital Equipment Company by Axis Capital Group

Axis Capital Group, Singapore is our first company of choice. Our family is into bed and breakfast and when we finally decided to expand to Jakarta Indonesia, since the City is booming on tourism, we immediately contacted Axis. They were actually our partners since day one of the construction of our first business, also bed and breakfast and is located in Southeast Asia as well.

This business has yet to give us our machine next month, they are a bit expensive than others but the quality of their machines are tried and tested, you can trust that they would lease you a quality equipment. I never heard of any customers who had issues and complaints against them.

I also commend their customer service hotline. I usually get pissed on waiting too long just to talk to real people and not the answering machine but theirs is very customer friendly, no waiting time and no rude and no nothing representatives.

I have read some reviews about Axis that I thought were just some part of black propaganda or some unhealthy competition from some envious rivalries. They were unreasonable.

When we paid them the amount that they were supposed to get by June 2000, our first transaction with Axis, one of their front desk assistant promised us that we are going to get our equipment within one week and they did deliver in the promised time and even earlier. We did not have to call them several times just to follow-up on or orders in fact we did not even make any call, nothing at all. When I checked the equipment, all the orders were there and in quality condition despite transported from a far land.

For the past years that we are close deals with them, we never had any complaint at all. This is one company you should never worry about scams or fraud; they are just as genuine as you want your business to be. I recommend them along with my business name.
