2022 Economic Assessment of the Engineering and Design Services Industry
This is the third annual release of the Engineering and Design Services industry forecast. In 2020, the ACEC Research Institute first commissioned a series of studies – the Industry Impact Series – to profile and analyze performance in the Engineering and Design Services industry (A/E Services).
This study is updating that series which aims to describe, measure, and analyze the economic significance of the Engineering and Design Services industry and demonstrate the inextricable partnership between engineering, architects, and other design services to deliver the built environment of the United States. The built environment refers to all human-made surroundings that provide the setting for human activity, ranging in scale from buildings and parks/green space to neighborhoods and cities including their supporting infrastructure, such as roads, bridges, water supply and energy networks.
