Market Coverage Criteria|
The Industrial Manufacturing Industry is most clearly defined by durable and non-durable goods manufacturing. Coverage is further expanded to include infrastructures (i.e. port facilities, light rail transit, and distribution warehouses) that represent a $25 million initial investment or at least 500,000 square feet in size. The largest segment of our industrial market coverage, the North American Industrial Manufacturing database carries detailed profiles on over 23,500 of these manufacturing, distribution and infrastructure locations. Despite numerous plant closings from various industries over the last several years, spending activity remains strong in the sector. The construction of new foreign-owned automotive assembly plants across the country has encouraged new tier suppliers to establish their own US operations. Major facility investments continue for commercial printing, plastics producers, niche semiconductor operations, port development and light rail. Other manufacturing industries covered include Textiles and Apparel, Wood and Metal Products, Rubber and Plastic Molding and Instruments.

The Industrial Manufacturing Industry project database consists of approximately 1,428 projects valued at $120 billion for North America and scheduled for construction in 2013 and beyond. In this industry, coverage consists of durable and non-durable goods. The turndown in the economy as well as the credit market freeze has impacted this industry in new capital project development. However, IIR continues to find opportunities in select markets such as transportation, distribution and semiconductors. Like most industries, the trend for maintenance shutdown work is increasing. IIR continues to report on this activity in our database.
Living Forward Market Intelligence – IIR’s team of industry experts are constantly updating and reporting on new opportunities in the database that keeps your subscription timely, accurate and living forward. Our quality control process insures that the intelligence you receive today will become more valuable tomorrow.
