(i.e. it has vs. they have) Correct me if I'm wrong..... That would be true if we were using the verb in the present tense. As it is, the verb "to have" is in the infinitive tense. So "appears to have" is correct. If we were saying that the industry "has" made a comeback, then "has" and not "have" would be correct. Hope that helps.
