The DACH Consulting Market
Despite a growing sense of disquiet about the broader political and economic environment, the market performed well last year, growing by 6.3% to reach a value of almost €8.7bn. Growth was highest—at 6.5%—in Germany, with Industry 4.0 driving strong demand in manufacturing. Switzerland was just behind at 5.7%, though performance was down from the 7% rate enjoyed 2014, largely because of the removal of a cap on the franc. Austria was the comparative laggard of the group, with just 2.7% growth, as the market was impacted by slow decision making and a considerable degree of nervousness.
