Marcum’s 2023 National Construction Survey

Every year, Marcum surveys the national construction industry. The results reveal key trends in the construction industry today – including some of the biggest issues keeping construction executives up at night – and provide valuable benchmarking for your practice.

2023 marks a deeply interesting and complex time for construction as the industry responds to economic transformation. Despite the very real challenges presented by inflation and higher rates, survey respondents demonstrate resilience as backlogs are still up and supply chains and material costs are stabilizing. However, many factors, including the skilled labor shortage, still threaten the industry in a highly competitive landscape.
