The US construction industry comprises 3.3 million businesses providing employment to over 9.4 million Americans and generating a combined annual revenue of $2 trillion. Sectors within the industry include: building construction (builders and contractors), heavy construction (infrastructure) and special trade contractors (plumbing, HVAC, painting, electrical, masonry, carpentry, roofing, concrete, water well drilling, structural, glass work, excavation and demolition).
TRENDS & CHALLENGES
Globalization has opened the market frontiers to manufacturing, creating both opportunities and challenges for US manufacturers. While the manufacturing of high volume low cost goods has generally moved overseas, US manufacturers are still excelling in the delivery of technical and specialized manufactured goods. Managing far-flung supply chains and distribution channels poses persistent challenges. Meanwhile, improved operational efficiency has accelerated product development, design, production, distribution and marketing, while shortening the sales cycle.
Even before the Pandemic, the manufacturing industry was trying to regain momentum from a general exodus to lower-cost markets. Looking ahead to 2021, the recovery may take longer than expected, with a moderate growth forecasted at 3.5%.
Agility is key to the resilience of the manufacturing industry. Opportunities lie in its transformation: digital investment, supply chain resilience, agility in its operations and adaptation to the new workplace.
