Off-colour: Weak construction spending over the next five years will dampen industry performance

The Painting and Decorating Services industry has expanded over the past five years. Industry revenue is expected to rise at an annualised 1.1% over the five years through 2017-18.

These trends have benefited industry players, as more clients have requested industry services to paint and decorate new apartments, townhouses, units and houses. Favourable economic conditions and positive consumer sentiment have also encouraged homeowners and landlords to spend on discretionary services, such as home improvements and more.
