New data shows that the Mountain West is leading the nation in the value of construction for manufacturing plants – an indicator of the significant economic changes afoot across the region.

The U.S. Census Bureau released manufacturing construction numbers last week that break down monthly private spending by region. Its tables show that the Mountain West saw $26.5 billion worth of manufacturing construction in 2022, beating out every other region in the United States. Just in the last year and a half, it’s increased five-fold, according to an analysis by the Economic Innovation Group.
