Disagreements Over Most Promising Markets Revealed
January 5, 2010

ZweigWhite’s newest publication, the 2010 AEC Industry Outlook: Strategy and Insight for Design & Construction Firms reveals a contrast of opinion regarding projected “Hot” markets for 2010 between industry consultants and architecture, engineering, and environmental firm leaders.

In this year’s 2010 AEC Business Trends Survey, firm leaders expect the Government/Municipal market to lead all others in 2010, while consultants anticipated that this market will perform well, but expects that the Health Care market will maintain its top spot for the seventh year running.

The availability of federal funding that flowed from the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (aka the stimulus bill) boosted the federal, state, and local public markets, and firm leaders are expecting that funding in these areas will continue to stay strong through 2010. As a result, firm leaders expect the Government/Municipal market to outpace all others in 2010.

ZweigWhite expects the Health Care market, which experienced slowness in 2009 as a result of the recession, to rebound well in 2010, followed closely by the Government/Municipal market and the Transportation market, with both markets indeed receiving a boost from federal intervention in the marketplace in the form of stimulus funding and other measures.

The report is available here. The executive summary is free.
