Growing business profits will drive demand for management consulting services

Post-pandemic uncertainty to support demand in the near term

CLEVELAND, August 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Management consulting revenue is expected to grow 4.9% annually in nominal dollars through 2026, according to Management consulting services: United States, a report recently published by Freedonia Focus Reports. Management consulting providers are expected to benefit from gains in non-residential fixed investment, in turn driven by continued growth in consumer spending and increased after-tax business profits. Companies will continue to use these profits to invest in new projects, which will encourage consulting to advise on these projects and improve market performance. Clients will also be incentivized to spend on consulting services due to ongoing challenges and opportunities such as cybersecurity, increasing regulation, data privacy, the advent of manufacturing machines connected to the Internet of Things (IoT), big data, artificial intelligence and supply chain challenges for supplies. However, faster increases will be limited by competition from internal corporate resources, as company employees are faced with a choice between hiring consultants or using company staff.

Management consulting revenue is expected to grow 4.0% in 2022. Firms trying to cope with and anticipate the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, such as changes in labor relations and government regulations, as well as the ongoing realignment of international relations disrupting supply chains and consumer markets will drive demand for consulting services.

These and other key insights are included in Management consulting services: United States. This report forecasts US management consulting services revenue for 2022 and 2026 in nominal US dollars. Total revenues are segmented by services in terms of:
