SUGAR LAND, TX–(Marketwired – Jun 20, 2016) – Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) — Globally, Industrial Info is tracking more than 200 projects worth more than $65 billion that previously were canceled or placed on hold, but have returned to an active status between the beginning of April and the end of June. More than 90% of these project restarts can be found in four industries — Power, Metals & Minerals, Petroleum Refining and Chemical Processing — and include some of the most highly anticipated (and frequently delayed) projects in those areas.

Almost half of the total investment value (TIV) for the restarts can be found in the Power Industry, in which $32.79 billion worth of projects have returned to active status since April 1, and more than half of that amount can be attributed to a single project.
