“What market segments will provide the most opportunity in 2014? Are there robust segments that look to be cashed out now? Undiscovered emerging segments?

Greg Anapol: All indications are that both multifamily and single-family residential markets have a positive outlook across the board in new construction and remodeling. Commercial construction is edging up as well, while public works projects are trending down as a result of budget cuts. We anticipate mild growth in retrofit applications as building owners look to refresh existing warehouse and industrial space versus building new. We also expect to see signs of growth in emerging areas like solar, oil and gas construction.”
