Australian Construction Industry Outlook

At Homecorp, we believe it is key to not only deliver but to go beyond expectation. Our purpose is to develop the best property product, processes and outcomes. As part of our process, Homecorp consider the Australian construction industry outlook and how it impacts what we are developing and where.

Australian Construction Industry

The Australia construction market is expected to grow from USD 163.34 billion in 2023 to USD 213.31 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 5.48% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

Investment in the industry has always been a key driver of the market. Technological innovation is now also driving growth and increasing productivity.

  • The Australian construction industry generates nearly 360 billion in revenue (9% of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP)) and has a projected annual growth rate of 2.4%.
  • It employs approximately one in 10 workers which is 9.6%% of the total workforce.
  • Australian Government Statistics indicate the construction industry workforce is 1,322,100.
  • The Australian government has a strong vision for developing smarter communities powered by cutting-edge technology solutions. New technologies in the construction industry are disrupting traditional models for planning, staffing, monitoring, and delivering projects as the physical world becomes increasingly digitized.

    Homecorp are already advancing digitization within the business and our strategic ownership by Prime Life Technologies, a Toyota and Panasonic company, puts us in the driver’s seat to tap into advancing technology in the construction sector.

Australian Construction Trends

Increase in Infrastructure Construction

The value of construction in the non-residential segment is continuing to grow. Investments in the non-residential sector focus on schools, hospitals, offices, warehouses, and hotels.

With government-led projects in the energy sector and transportation ramping up, the construction industry is optimistic about seeing a growth rate during the forecast period.

Improvement Strategies

Cost Management

Embracing innovative construction methods, such as prefabrication and BIM, can optimise processes and reduce costs. The adoption of sustainable materials and strategic procurement practices can also contribute to cost management.

Skills Training

Collaborative efforts between the government, educational institutions and industry bodies are key. Options include increasing apprenticeships, providing targeted training programs for mature-age workers and establishing pathways for international talent.

Regulatory Clarity

Regulatory reforms should aim to simplify and clarify regulations. Consistent enforcement will also help reduce uncertainty for businesses. Engaging with industry stakeholders and learning from successful regulatory frameworks in other countries can guide these reforms.

Despite facing challenges, the opportunities for growth abound. By investing in skills training, embracing innovation, and fostering strong relationships with stakeholders, the Australian construction industry can thrive and will play a vital role in driving economic growth and development.

“良家”(A Good Home)

“A home is a place where our heart is, a place where we build character, a place of importance as we live our lives. I would like to build wonderful homes that nurture our living.”

Konosuke Matsushita – Founder, Panasonic

Strategic Ownership – Future Focus

Toyota Motor and Panasonic chose to merge housing businesses to form a joint venture. This company, Prime Life Technologies, is focused on developing connected homes and services for next-generation living.

Both companies see opportunity in the internet of things, or IoT, which connects home appliances, vehicles and other devices via the internet.

“A rapid change is expected in this business due to the accelerated deployment of IoT technologies in home appliances, household equipment, etc., as well as in the evolution in mobility.”

Toyota Operating Officer Masayoshi Shirayanagi

“It will be necessary to create cities with many partners…
we want to enhance convenience.”

Panasonic Senior Managing Executive Officer Makoto Kitano believes merging businesses “will create unparalleled value in cities.”

This merger has a clear future focus. By combining the strengths of the two companies, the aim is to take advantage of the internet of things to explore and develop new housing applications.

“Toyota has been leading the mobility field, and Panasonic has long been serving lifestyle needs of people,” said Pansonic President Kazuhiro Tsuga in a statement. “We will put our respective strengths together to offer new value in everyday life.”

“I want to take on the challenge of providing a new kind of lifestyle.”

Akio Toyoda – President, Toyota

Toyoda added that he wanted to combine “the strengths of Toyota”, with its vehicle business and connected business, and Panasonic, with its home appliances, battery and IoT business”. The combination of all these elements will deliver enhanced competitiveness.

Toyota entered the housing business in 1975 and established Toyota Housing in 2003. They then acquired Misawa Homes in 2017. Shortly after this acquisition discussions commenced to join forces with Homecorp in Queensland.

In 2018 Homecorp announced strategic ownership by Prime Life Technologies through Misawa Homes Australia. Prime Life Technologies and Misawa Homes Australia, and then in turn Homecorp, are jointly owned by Toyota and Panasonic.
