Smooth out: Residential construction activity will grow and modestly expand industry revenue

Over the past five years, a slight expansion in Canadian industrial production combined with robust demand from international markets has helped lead to improving industry performance, and overall industry revenue has risen. The Abrasive and Sandpaper Manufacturing industry in Canada is closely connected to the US economy due to its proximity and the sheer size of downstream markets in the United States. As a result, the industry has experienced a lift over the last five years due to strong growth from US residential housing markets. Further, a depreciating domestic currency has made industry products more competitive abroad, and alongside strong demand from US products this has led to rising export figures and a corresponding increase in industry more.
