The overall industry is well on its way to being a consistent multi-billion dollar sector of the economy and this growth is leading to rising levels of investment, both privately and publicly. Leaders in the industry are expanding operations in order to keep up with the rising levels of demand. Examples of expansion include companies investing in additional land to expand production facilities, as well as pioneers expanding operations into new markets in order to capitalize on new opportunities.
