HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Plunkett’s Consulting Industry Almanac, 2017 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.
Global consulting industry revenues (including HR, IT, strategy, operations, management and business advisory services) will reach approximately $488 billion in 2017, according to Plunkett Research estimates. As corporate profits in general have grown dramatically in recent years, executives are reasonably willing to authorize new consulting projects as long as they see the potential for a good return on the cost. Over the same period, growth in government budgets in the U.S. and much of Europe have been under tremendous pressure at the national, state and local levels. Even with a rebound on most state and local levels, efforts are still underway to lower or outright curtail spending and debt. This has been particularly hard on some consulting firms, since governmental agencies are prime clients for consultancies.
Plunkett Research lists 250 companies in Consulting and names top trends changing the industry for the mid term.
