Figures from the Construction Skills Network annual report:
- Construction output fell by 13% in Wales in 2012
- Construction output projected to rise by 2.7% per year between now and 2017 - above UK average of 0.8% rise
There's usually a lag between output rises and employment, meaning the report projects around 3,560 construction jobs will be lost in Wales between now and 2017.
- Construction employment projected to fall by 1.5% per year between now and 2017
- 92,910 construction workers projected to be employed by end of 2017 - that's more than 20,000 (23%) below its peak in 2007
