Richmond’s strategic location on the James River and a well-developed intermodal transportation network provide for a growing logistics and distribution sector. Amazon recently announced plans for a fulfillment center along Interstate 95 south of Richmond. The market’s educated workforce is also drawing more companies to the region and already Richmond houses more Fortune 500 firms than many larger metros.
- Demand for Child Care Remains Extremely Strong
The early education and daycare segment dominated the U.S. child care market and accounted for the largest revenue share in 2019. This is owing to an increasing number of daycare and early education centers in the country. The demand for early education is growing rapidly as around 1.4 million and 3.7 million students were enrolled in prekindergarten and kindergarten respectively in 2019. The key factors driving the U.S. child care market growth include increasing government funding for childcare, rising demand for daycare centers; and an increase in the number of women employment.
