Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure in the US

By 2030 SDG 9, Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, aims to build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation. This includes increasing investments in research and development (R&D), manufacturing, and upgrading our infrastructure in all sectors including transport and energy. It also means ensuring businesses and entrepreneurs have access to financial services and markets, and that everyone has access to affordable and reliable broadband internet and other information and communication technology.

The US invests over $650 billion into research and development (R&D) each year funded by private businesses, federal and non-federal governments, higher education institutions, and nonprofit organizations. In 2019, US State Governments spent $2.4 billion on Research & Development, 45% of which went to health-related projects.

Despite so much investment in research and development in the US, much of our established infrastructure has declined and could use much more funding and innovation. Every four years, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) releases America’s Infrastructure Scorecard. In the 2021 report, the nation received an overall score of C-. Currently, 42% percent of all bridges are at least 50 years old and 7.5% are considered to be in “poor” condition, while 43% of our public roadways are in poor or mediocre condition. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which regulates communication by radio, television, and other means, estimates that 14.5 million Americans don’t have access to broadband internet.
