HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Plunkett’s Engineering & Research Industry Almanac, 2016 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.

In industrialized nations, R&D investment has risen from an average of about 1.5% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 1980 to about 2.0% today.  The U.S. continues to lead the world in terms of total investment in research and development, at about $514 billion during 2016.  However, it ranks behind many other industrialized nations in terms of R&D as a percent of GDP. Meanwhile, U.S. corporations continue to fund massive engineering projects and research budgets of their own.  Top research investors among U.S. companies include Merck & Co., Pfizer, IBM, Ford, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft and Intel. Engineering, science and research and development provide large numbers of well-paying jobs in America and around the world.
