“According to a report released in May 2014 by market research company IBIS World the Australian local tradesman and handyman industry is set to grow close to $1 billion in five years. “It seems Australians place a lot of value on the humble handyman, with the market for small home repairs and maintenance set to grow to 881.9 million in 2018-19 ……”
The rise in demand is due to:
- An increased number of Australians who don’t have the time or the expertise to perform these tasks around the home or work place;
- A rise in the number of households and commercial properties that need to be maintained;
- Home owners increasing capital expenditure in their houses by renovating and performing maintenance work.
