Data confidence level:
This FACT indicates the number of construction companies located in each Australian capital city, and provides some insight into the growth and development in each. The construction industry plays a significant role in the nation’s economy and is growing fast worldwide. The Australian construction industry in particular has experienced significant growth over the past few years; which is especially remarkable considering the widespread economic downturn that many countries experienced following the global financial crisis of 2008-09.
This data, taken from the Yellow Pages online directory for 2013, shows that Sydney and Melbourne have far more room for growth than their Australian counterparts, with 5921 and 5824 respectively. Brisbane is ranked third, with over 3,000 less companies than the Victorian capital.
While the directories do not afford a completely accurate analysis, the numbers do offer some interesting insight into the potential of each city, as well as the infrastructural changes that are possible in each.
