residential construction market witnessed a strong demand until 2008 because of the global
economic boom between 2003 and 2007. However, the subprime crisis that emerged in late 2007
led to fall in prices and demand for residential properties in 2008. The subprime crisis that
originated in the US spread to the other nations, leading to global economic slowdown towards
the end of 2008; and has adversely affected the construction industry. Most of the governments
introduced large stimulus packages as counter-cycle measures to revive the economic growth.
The stimulus packages mostly comprised of infrastructure projects that helped governments
generate more number of jobs in short period. The stimulus packages led to increased
construction activity in the infrastructure construction and institutional construction markets.
Impact of global economic crisis was comparatively less on developing nations, which saw
growth in the commercial construction market.
