We can provide data on market size, growth rates, and forecasts across 29 industrial sectors, 10 service lines, and 84 countries. This data can be as detailed and as in depth as you need. We’re flexible so let us know what your requirements are.
Sometimes pure data isn’t enough: You need to know what it means for you and who your competitors are. We draw on all of our research and knowledge to build a picture of the world around you, helping you to translate insight into action.
We create packs of information specific to a geography, sector, or service line to get you up to speed with everything you need to know about your market.
Market Trends Programme
What it is
Consulting market programme
A suite of reports that are available to buy as a package or individually, and that contain the most accurate view available about the consulting market in an extensive list of geographies and sectors. You get market sizing data, growth forecasts, and deep analysis, all backed up by extensive quantitative and qualitative research among consulting firms and clients. The vast majority of reports within the consulting market programme are published every year, but we occasionally add new reports or reduce the frequency of existing reports to suit the needs of the market.
Professional services reports
Our Global Data Model has market sizing information on the tax, risk consulting/assurance, and real estate advisory markets in our standard 84 countries and 29 sectors. This year will see our first major report dedicated to the broad risk assurance and consulting market, based on data from our model and interviews with both senior people buying and using risk services in key geographies and key firms offering services in this space.
We’re publishing two new reports about the audit market in 2018, examining two of the most important trends in this industry—the impact of increased audit rotation, and the audit of the future—both of which will use feedback from senior people in the finance and risk functions of major US corporations to paint a picture of the likely opportunities and challenges.
Our customers use us because:
No other organisation covers the professional services market in as much detail. We don’t, for instance, treat Europe as one homogenous whole, but as a series of independent markets, each with their own characteristics.
Our reports are easy to use and enjoyable to read. Yes, you read that right: enjoyable. We think that matters.
Our reports are underpinned by our global data model, which means they can be sure they’re getting the most accurate and up-to-date data about the professional services industry available.
We have a global data model of the professional services industry that is the biggest and most sophisticated of its kind ever created. It provides data on market size, growth rates, and forecasts across 29 industrial sectors, 10 service lines, and 84 countries. It also breaks down the market by different types of firm.
We can provide you with a version of the model that’s customised to fit your needs, giving you data on all the countries, sectors, and service lines that matter to you, and none that don’t. But we won’t stop there, unless you want us to: Our analysts will work alongside you to make the model yours, mapping our definitions to yours, so you can look at the market on your terms rather than ours.
Our customers use our global data model because:
It’s the biggest and most sophisticated model of its kind in existence.
It gives them the most accurate data available. That’s because we build our model from the bottom up rather than the top down every year. So, for example, we start by trying to understand what’s actually happening within individual consulting practices, in individual firms, in individual countries, rather than with broad assumptions about what should be happening to the consulting industry based on macro-economic conditions.
We’re happy to customise it to their needs. We know that people define different parts of the consulting industry in different ways, and have lots of experience mapping our definitions and our data to their view of the world.
We’re fast, efficient, down-to-earth, and incredibly nice people to do business with.
For many of the firms we work with, pure data isn’t enough, and nor are standard reports able to offer a view that’s sufficiently tailored to their needs. In these situations, our analysts start with a blank sheet of paper, put your firm in the middle of it, and draw on all our data and knowledge–including about clients’ perceptions–to build a picture of the world around you. You get a story that’s laser-focused on your competitors, challenges, and your opportunities. This helps you to translate data and insight into action, preparing you for the future.
