EBJ Vol XXIX No 09 & 10: Environmental Industry Overview 2016

The U.S. environmental industry grew 3.5% in 2015, according to research and data compiled by Environmental Business International Inc., publisher of EBJ. The environmental industry’s total of $363.3 billion in revenues represented 2.83% of the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) in 2015, and EBI estimates environmental industry employment at 1.73 million in 2014, up 4,500 from 2014 with gains in clean energy offset by loss of employment in resource recovery and industrial services related to the oil & gas industry. In 2016, EBI forecasts that the U.S. environmental industry will grow 3.7%, with annual average growth in 2017-2019 of 3-4%. EBJ’s annual industry overview edition presents statistical summaries of the entire industry in 14 segments with multiple charts with revenues, growth, employment, number of companies, forecast and revenue breakdowns by client, media and function.

This 42-page edition features a section on environmental labs, industrial services with key trends and M&A, environmental information with profiles of two top software service companies, solid waste, a review of EBI’s first Pacific Northwest Environmental Industry Summit, and company profiles.
