  • TM Capital is pleased to release our 2015 Building Products Report, the follow-up to our 2014 Building Products Report, highlighting strong fundamental economic indicators supporting the industry’s recovery including growing construction activity, favorable housing affordability, rising consumer confidence and an attractive credit environment. The report further demonstrates that the recovery is likely in its early stages and sustainable long term because, while well above recessionary lows, household formation, housing starts and private residential investment as a percentage of GDP remain well below their historical norms. Click below to view the full report.
