EBJ Vol XXVII No 11: Environmental Consulting & Engineering Industry Review & Outlook 2014-2015

EBJ's annual analysis of the environmental consulting & engineering industry details the $28.3 billion U.S. C&E industry in 2013. Market review and the EBJ dataset provides a market breakdown and forecast by client, media and service type and exhibits show geographic breakdowns and lists of top firms. EBJ expects growth of only 1-2% for 2014, and forecasts 3-4% for 2015. This is modest growth, but coming off a 1.5% contraction in 2013, it has to be seen in a positive light. C&E firms mostly maintained or increased their profitability in 2013 and M&A activity continues as the bar is raised on large firm competition, but clients are increasingly trying to push risk on to their contractors with mixed results. Features include an analysis of the UK market, EPC in wind & solar, and profiles of firms highlighting their strategy and market and management approach.

  • Revenue Performance of U.S. Environmental Consulting & Engineering Firms by Size in 2013 ($mil)
