Demand Driven Forecasts 2014
ACIF’s Demand Driven Forecasts (DDF) project the state of construction activity for seven different infrastructure types across 21 Australian regions using demographic modelling and the latest Cordell Information project dataset.
The forecasts are based on expected changes in population and demographics, and the amount of committed and planned construction expenditure within a region, and provides insight into the overall demand and supply balance of an infrastructure type over the years 2012 to 2020, thereby identifying local infrastructure needs.
ACIF’s DDFs are useful as it identifies overall trends in demand and supply of each of the infrastructures in a region, and where construction opportunities are likely to exist.
