ARTBA focuses exclusively on building and protecting the transportation infrastructure market. ARTBA’s nearly 6,000 members are among the most influential people and companies in the industry. And because ARTBA members are vested in the association’s cause, they are actively involved and engaged. They rely on ARTBA for federal legislative, safety, environmental and regulatory news impacting transportation development. Size of the Market is Significant • Transportation construction generates $354 billion in total annual economic activity for the nation—the equivalent of 2.25 percent of Gross Domestic Product. • A total of $121.3 billion in highway, bridge, ports and waterways, airport runways and terminals, transit and rail construction work was completed in the United States during 2013. Reach Your Target Audience • Three-quarters of the top 50 transportation contractors on the ENR top 400 contractor list are ARTBA members. All ARTBA contractor members on the list account for over 58% of reported transportation-related revenues. • 80 percent of the world’s 20 largest equipment manufacturers are ARTBA members. • ARTBA members account for nearly 85 percent of transportation related revenues, or $13.4 billion, for the top 150 transportation planning and design firms on the ENR top 500 list. Why Advertise with ARTBA? • 19,862 federal, state, and local transportation officials and safety professionals receive the digital“Transportation Builder.” “Transportation Builder”Readers Make Purchasing Decisions • Transportation construction contractors spend nearly $7 billion annually in equipment purchases, leases and rentals, and other capital investments. • On average, transportation construction contractors spend 10 times more on equipment and capital investment annually than general construction firms.

Increased federal investment in surface transportation provides new market opportunities for industry firms. There are a variety of reasons why industry firms make ARTBA’s publications a key part of their advertising strategy. On the cover: Top photo courtesy of Gresham, Smith and Partners.
