EBJ Vol XXVII No 03: Environmental Industry Outlook 2014 and EBJ Annual Snapshot Survey

EBJ provides data on 2013 growth rates in environmental service segments and a forecast for 2014-2015 based on a comprehensive survey of 130 environmental industry executives. EBJ 2014 Snapshot Survey respondents expect their growth in 2014 to be almost 2 percentage points higher than in a fairly slow 2013. Overall the Market Outlook sees continued concern in federal markets and some comeback in state & municipal markets but generally slow government growth; Private markets look considerably better led by oil & gas, some resourcing in manufacturing, and the long anticipated return of growth in construction.
