State of the Nation: 2018 Industry Trends and Why They Matter
On Demand

Join us for State of the Nation: 2018 Industry Trends and Why They Matter – a webinar uncovering industry trends from the past year and how these trends tell a broader story about the evolving US economy. 

Though 2018 marks another year of overall expansion, it is only part of the story, with growth lacking consistency both across sectors and within industries. Listen in as IBISWorld’s Lead Editor, Kieran Newton, interviews Senior Strategic Market Research Analyst, Robert Miles, and Senior Technical Analyst, Viraj D’Costa, on: 

  • What industries are growing and in decline, and why? 
  • Employment Trends: Which industries are driving US employment growth? 
  • Industry Migration: Which states are the winners and losers as industries shift within the US? 
  • The Next Recession: Which industries are likely to perform well, and which will falter when the next recession hits?
