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. EBJ¡¯s annual analysis of the C&E segment of the environmental industry presents data on market size, market breakdowns, growth, forecasts, benchmark perfomance and international revenues by size of firms, and also lists the top 60 U.S. environmental consulting & engineering firms with profiles of large and small.

EBJ Vol XXIV No 09: Infrastructure Markets

The five basic categories of infrastructure covered are energy, water, communications, transportation, and waste & recycling and experts and industry participants are interviewed in each, although EBJ places emphasis in feature reviews on power, ports, and transportation with a dedicated water edition following. The U.S. lacks sufficient attributes in its infrastructure and funding apparatus to garner even a passing grade in global ratings by analysts, indicating both tremendous needs and potential for growth in U.S. infrastructure markets, but not without significant structural obstacles to overcome. Globally, power rates highest as a market in terms of growth prospects, with water and transportation clear second and third.
