EBJ Vol XXIV No 11: Environmental Consulting & Engineering Industry Review & Outlook 2011

EBJ's annual analysis of the environmental consulting & engineering industry details a $26.6 billion U.S. industry competing in a $53 billion global environmental consulting & engineering market. Following a 4% revenue decline in 2009, the environmental C&E industry had a rebound year of 2.2% growth in 2010, and indications suggest that 2011 will finish the year at close to 4% growth. Several market segments¡ªnotably energy & power and the extractive industries, in particular unconventional gas and oil in North America and mining in Canada, Australia, and South America¡ªare offering substantial opportunity, but the economy remains a major concern for C&E executives. In spite of declining and competitive markets, environmental consulting firms in general maintained their profitability, and M&A activity picked up in 2010 and 2011.
