Cleveland, OH, July 22, 2022 — Revenues for management consulting services are forecast to advance 4.9% annually in nominal dollars through 2026, according to Management Consulting Services: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Providers of management consulting services are expected to benefit from gains in nonresidential fixed investment, in turn propelled by continued growth in consumer spending and increased business profits after taxes. Companies will continue to use these profits to invest in new projects, which will spur demand for consulting to advise on those projects and improve market outcomes. Clients will also be incentivized to spend on consultant services due to ongoing challenges and opportunities, such as cybersecurity, increasing regulation, data privacy, the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) connected manufacturing machinery, big data, artificial intelligence, and supply chain challenges. However, faster increases will be constrained by competition from internal corporate resources, as company officers face a choice between hiring consultants or using company personnel.
Revenues for management consulting services are expected to grow 4.0% in 2022. Firms attempting to deal with and predict the ongoing repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as changes in labor relations and government regulations, as well as ongoing realignment of international relations disrupting supply chains and consumer markets, will fuel demand for consulting services.
