Is the phrase "adverse developments" acceptable? For exmaple in this context: "Does the industry despite these adverse developments still have a future?"

    Please tell us where you found this sentence—or, if you wrote it yourself, let us know that.

    (And I think you mean example.)

    The phrase "adverse developments" is fine here, assuming you have just said something that tells readers what those adverse developments are.

    However, I think the sentence would be easier to follow if you set off "despite these adverse developments" with commas before and after, or moved it to the end of the sentence.

    I was focusing on the words rather than on punctuation; but yes, I concur with you. Commas would be better here.
