Global consulting industry revenues (including HR, IT, strategy, operations, management and business advisory services) will be about $470 billion in 2016, according to Plunkett Research estimates. The consulting industry experienced a slowdown after the 2008-2009 recession, but rising profits means major consulting companies, are seeing a rise in business from corporate clients. The same cannot be said for the government sector where intense budgetary scrutiny has been particularly hard on some consulting firms.
