The GCC Consulting Market in 2017
It was a slow year by the GCC’s standards: The consulting market grew by 6% to reach a total value of $2.8bn. While mature markets the world over would view this figure as a cause for celebration, consultants here are accustomed to significantly higher growth numbers. Concerns are deepened by the slow pace in Saudi Arabia’s public sector—a market that constitutes the beating heart of many firms’ GCC consulting activities. Many feel that if consulting spend here were to stop, it could bring down the entire market. The report looks at this, and some other big themes that are playing out across the GCC consulting industry at the moment.
