The Construction Products Association’s latest State of Trade Survey for 2023 Q1 highlighted the continued mix of fortunes in the construction product manufacturing industry. For a third consecutive quarter a fall in sales for heavy side producers contrasted with continued growth for manufacturers on the light side. Forward-looking sales expectations improved, however, but the strength of demand in construction remains the key concern for sales over the next 12 months.

The CPA State of Trade Survey reports the results of the Association’s quarterly survey of construction products manufacturers, providing a timely assessment of current and expected conditions in the sector.
