SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 24, 2013) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- The year is almost halfway gone, and now is a good time to look at how things are stacking up in regard to U.S. industrial development. More than 3,000 projects with a combined total investment value of $81.9 billion have begun construction in the U.S. since January, or are planned to begin before the end of this month, according to the June 2013 edition of Industrial Info's NavigatIIR Newsletter.

Not surprisingly, the Power Industry carries the highest dollar value for project kickoffs, at more than $20.5 billion. Approximately $7 billion are wind and solar projects, not including the associated transmission projects. Another $4.5 billion are emissions control projects at coal-fired power stations, as emissions regulations are becoming tighter.
In terms of value, the runner-up industry is the Industrial Manufacturing Industry, which covers a broad array of industrial sectors, including automotive assembly plants, light rail projects and distribution centers.
In comparison, in 2012 slightly more than 2,700 projects, worth approximately $79.9 billion, kicked off in the first half of the year.
