“With Utah’s focus on ‘cluster’ economic development, the state could see growth in aerospace, IT and software development, the financial services market, outdoor products, life sciences, recreation, energy and natural resource industries,” DeHerrera says. “The clusters were identified as Utah’s competitive strengths for demographics like an educated workforce, outdoor environment, existing infrastructure, military installations and manufacturing. Playing off the strengths of these industries may prove to be an economic boom for Utah in terms of growth, construction and economic progress.”
