California Construction Industry Predictions for 2023

Every year is shaped by certain trends in pretty much any industry. Working in the construction industry, you probably have some idea of the impact that the economic, socioeconomic, and environmental factors have on it, basically shaping the way these companies do business. Changes brought about by these factors sometimes fade away and sometimes stick and practically become the norm. Having at least some idea of what could happen in 2023 in this industry, i.e. what kinds of trends and predictions to expect, will help you get better prepared for it all and protect your company against getting caught off guard with certain things.

This could tell you what may happen with residential construction in 2023:

Being aware of those predictions is, undeniably, rather important for all the companies doing business in this industry. The predictions are, of course, made based on relevant data and not based on someone’s personal opinions.

Trends That Will Be On The Rise

Speaking of trends, telling you that you have to be aware of those without actually telling you what they are would be weird, wouldn’t it? The last few years have certainly been forcing professionals in this industry, as well as in any other one for that matter, to become more creative when thinking of new solutions for their issues. Expecting that to continue in 2023 is completely normal. Checking out the trends that could shape this year will help you figure out more precisely what to expect.


Remote project management, which was only used by a fraction of companies all over the world pre-pandemic and that experienced a large increase in users during the pandemic, is said to be expected to really take off for the construction industry in 2023. Collaborating with all the partners in the building process will be quite a lot easier now that the proper technology has been developed aiming at allowing for remote project management. Drones are 3D printers are also being used much more and are perhaps expected to continue being used in 2023 as well.

Equipment Rentals

Not all construction companies always offer the very same services. Renting out equipment is often one of the services you can receive from some of these firms, and if your company is actually providing them, then I have some great news for you. A huge boost in sales is expected in this part of the industry over the next couple of years, and some experts even say that the entire revenue could increase by up to 40%. A pretty huge number.

Renewable Energy

Taking note of energy prices, construction companies are realizing that those are going up and that customers are turning more towards sustainable solutions due to that. Making the shift towards renewable energy is, thus, expected to be seen in numerous firms. As customers are becoming more environmentally cautious, they’re looking for firms sharing their values, which is, among other things, why those professionals are switching to renewable energy, as they expect to score more projects that way.

Laws Some changes in laws are also bound to be expected, such as banning those gasoline-powered smaller engines and similar machines. Other things are bound to remain the same, though. For one thing, getting contractor insurance in CA is still a must. Protecting yourself this way against certain lawsuits and against huge losses in terms of money will ensure that your business will operate smoothly even if you encounter certain issues. Following the existing laws

and be informed about new ones on a regular basis is important here, so remember to check those every now and then.

Relief In Construction Costs

Predictions regarding construction costs in 2023 is a bit contradicting. Some are claiming that the high costs will continue, at least in the first half of the year. Others believe that the companies will see some relief in the prices. Waiting to see is the only thing we can do.
