Worker shortages, supply chain troubles mark 2022 construction trends

Article | July 1, 2022

Lingering impacts of the pandemic have complicated construction industry trends, but emerging technologies will offer solutions.


Like all business and industry segments, construction was significantly impacted by two years of pandemic disruptions and continues to grapple with its lingering effects. Projects were interrupted, workers idled and development plans set back by months. As we move into a different phase of living with the pandemic, construction projects across the nation are back in high gear, only now presenting the industry with additional complications caused by trends that, while present before the pandemic, have been amplified by the continuing effects of the past two-plus years.

As we approach Construction Safety Week 2022,  let’s take the opportunity to explore two of the most significant trends that will continue to affect construction in the near term, and look at some of the evolving solutions that will shape the future of the business.


The disappearing worker


The most significant trend in the construction industry today, and likely to continue to stress the business for some time, is a persistent and intensifying labor shortage. According to the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) organization, the construction industry needs to immediately attract nearly 650,000 additional workers over and above its normal pace of hiring in 2022 to meet the increasing demand for labor.


Meeting every challenge head-on is our passion.
