The U.S. commercial (non-residential) construction market outlook for the remainder of 2017 and through 2018 is expected to grow in the 4% range, according to the AIA Consensus Construction Forecast panel.

There are factors that could add tailwind to growth estimates, which include tax reform, financial deregulation, and a trillion-dollar infrastructure program over the coming decade.
