The ACEC Research Institute commissioned a series of studies – the Industry Impact Series – to profile and analyze performance in the Engineering and Design Services Industry (A/E Services). The series was conducted by Rockport Analytics, an independent market and economic research firm using both publicly and privately available data, as well as proprietary analysis. The study aims to describe, measure, and demonstrate the indispensable 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 water supply or energy networks.

This report focuses on analyzing the key economic drivers of the Engineering & Design Services sector, building a statistical model using the strongest correlations between Engineering & Design Services performance and those drivers, and constructing a recurring industry outlook. The outlook and modeling assets can be used to forecast future Engineering & Design Services performance and evaluate scenarios surrounding policy, geopolitical, and other future conditions.
