HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. announces an important market research and competitive analysis report, Plunkett’s Engineering & Research Industry Almanac, 2021 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.

The U.S. continues to lead the world in terms of total investment in research and development, at about $598 billion during 2021, down from $608 billion one year earlier. However, it ranks behind many other industrialized nations in terms of R&D as a percent of GDP. U.S. corporations continue to fund massive engineering projects and research budgets of their own. Top research investors among U.S. companies include Amazon, Alphabet (Google), Merck & Co., Pfizer, Microsoft, IBM, Johnson & Johnson and Intel. Engineering, science and research and development provide large numbers of well-paying jobs in America and around the world. Officially, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates 1.52 million people working in architectural and engineering services as of February 2021.
