A sustained global economic recovery from the crisis of seven years ago has produced one of its most obvious indicators in the growth of worldwide construction, with the industry set to grow to $8.5 trillion in 2015 and on to $10.3 trillion by 2020.*
The rise of skyscrapers worldwide appears to be unstoppable, with the advantages of efficient space usage linked to rising property prices - and the popularity of high buildings with commercial tenants.
So It is no surprise that across the globe, a boom in the construction of high buildings continues. In London alone, 70 skyscrapers are currently under construction, with another 200 planned; and worldwide there are expected to be eight 600m ‘megatall’ buildings by 2020.
Such rapid growth creates a need for the shipping of complex and often fragile construction materials worldwide.
