Insights
This time last year it was hard to escape the prospect of a global recession. Twelve months later and we are looking forward to a recovery in global economic growth, thanks to progress in finding a US-China trade compromise, and the likelihood that President Trump will be economically supportive leading up to the presidential election in November.

Although recent events have raised questions over the outlook for the sector, we explore why it is worth taking a closer look at some of the specialist areas within the sector that demonstrate clear prospects for strong long-term growth.
