The U.S. Gulf Coast region is forecasted to peak in 2020 at 159 million hours.

For 2020, Industrial Info estimates annual capital and maintenance spending for the U.S. industrial plant population to be $339.45 billion. This represents a $4.34 billion increase in spending from 2019.

While the downturn in the Oil & Gas Industry in 2015 pushed companies to re-evaluate project investments, the uncertainty coming from the 2016 presidential election created a wave of projects that were pushed out or canceled. Today, industrial construction and maintenance remains at an all-time high, with 2020 forecasted at $56.72 billion in the Gulf Coast Region.

Labor and other issues will be discussed at Industrial Info's upcoming Industrial Market Outlook & Networking Event, which will be held January 23 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. The event will place a special emphasis on projects in the U.S. Gulf Coast region, where Industrial Info is tracking more than $380 billion in active projects in the zones from Brownsville, Texas, to Pascagoula, Mississippi, including more than $166.4 billion worth that are set to start construction from now until the end of 2021.

Industrial Info's industry experts will be providing presentations about the overall global and North American markets, Chemicals, Power, Petroleum Refining, and the oil and natural gas sectors.
