Economic Projections for 2017

With the new year upon us and the majority of Americans setting off toward resolution goals, it’s often a time for businesses to do the same. Many businesses’ fiscal year ended at the end of 2016 and as such, accounts are being tallied, budgets are being examined for accuracy and forecasts are being made. We are facing many changes this year as the new administration takes control later this month. What will it all mean to those of us in the electrical industry? What will it mean to the construction industry and beyond?

The experts at AIA predict healthy growth of the construction sector to continue in 2017 much as it did in 2016, with non-residential construction forecast to be up 5.6% overall and all sectors within non-residential (commercial, education, retail, etc.) to be up as well.
