Scientific & Economic Consulting in the US

Coming off the back of a strong growth period, the industry was able to ride out the recession with relative stability. This growth trend is projected to continue as corporate clients increasingly look to consultants for expertise on topics of growing concern, such as security, the environment, the economy and technology. As companies become more confident in the economy, they will likely use built-up cash reserves to increase spending on added services like those of this industry.

Companies in this industry provide advice and assistance to businesses and other organizations on scientific and technical issues. The industry includes a range of specialist consulting activities, primarily in the areas of economic, energy and mineral, security, and agricultural analysis. This industry excludes establishments that derive their revenue primarily from environmental consulting and remediation, geophysical surveying and mapping, or oil and gas exploration.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
