Studies of the construction industry reveal several trends, such as deterioration of the national infrastructure, changes in the way that construction projects are funded and executed, the loss of skilled workers, and the impact of technology. Counterterrorism and outsourcing by the Department of Defense (DOD) are also key construction industry issues that have national security implications. There are likely to be regular and repeated construction demand surges in the international marketplace, and the U.S. government should take a more proactive role in helping the construction industry take advantage of international construction opportunities.
