As China moves from an investment-based economy to a consumer-based economy, how will construction markets be affected? There are hard times ahead for the commercial real estate sector. Across China's 70 major markets tracked by the National Bureau of Statistics, prices expanded by an anemic 0.06% month-on-month or 0.7% in annualized terms. Housing price growth momentum is now at its weakest since September 2012, when the housing market was slowing, pulling out of a three-quarter downturn. A collapse of the housing market would be detrimental to not only the construction industry but also the economy overall as a large amount of Chinese wealth is held in real estate.
