Changing demographics such as an annual population growth of about two percent, migration and socio-economic growth are resulting in the building construction market expansion, as these changing demographics increase demand for new buildings and refurbishment of existing ones. In Malaysia, construction of non-residential and residential buildings contributed between 40 to 55 percent of the total construction market between 2006 and 2009. The market revenues for building construction reached approximately $7.21 billion in 2008 and $6.67 billion in 2009, and it will potentially hit the $9.00 billion mark by 2015.
