Following the uneven and tentative recovery of the construction markets in 2014, business managers will have new uncertainties to navigate in 2015, including implications of Congressional elections, shifts in the supply and demand of construction materials, and changing demographics in key markets for cold-formed steel.

Kathryn Thompson, CEO of the Thompson Research Group and leading observer of the construction and materials industries, provides webinar attendees with a forward look at the economic landscape of 2015 and how they affect the demand for cold-formed steel and related products.  

Thompson will provide unique insights into the non-residential market for 2013, including her outlook for the segments within non-residential construction, the pricing pressures at work in the market, and bright spots (or cautions) for steel studs and connectors.
