1. Construction

The construction industry isn’t exactly known for being a hip new industry for investors. But, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction employment increased by 210,000 in 2017 — an impressive gain from job growth figures of 155,000 in 2016. Ending the year with a strong push, 30,000 of those jobs were added in December 2017.

With a continuing growth trend, construction could become one of America’s fastest-growing industries. Employment in construction continued to rise in June 2018, adding 13,000 jobs, according to the BLS.
