Research and Markets: 2012 UK Market Assessment of the Environmental Consulting Sector


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "2012 UK Market Assessment of the Environmental Consulting Sector" report to their offering.

Uk Environmental Consulting Market Stabilises

Modest Growth Of 0.7% Recorded In Environment Analyst's Latest Research

After two successive years of decline, the UK environmental consultancy market managed to halt the downward trend in 2011, and even secure a modest 0.7% increase, according to research undertaken by Environment Analyst.

The small but welcome growth, following contractions of 8.8% and 7.7% in 2009 and 2010 respectively, brought the value of the sector up £30 million to £1.23 billion from £1.2 billion the previous year. While indicating a return to stability, the market's performance in 2011 remains a far cry from the high of 2008, the culmination of two decades of unbroken growth.

Data collected for Environment Analyst's annual UK environmental consultancy market assessment indicates that the industry continues to feel the pinch of Government austerity measures and a sluggish domestic market. Further exacerbating the sector's efforts at recovery has been the financial fall-out from the Eurozone crisis. Given the wider economic backdrop, many practices have struggled to stabilise their businesses in the challenging conditions.

Nevertheless, some have taken the opportunity - and successfully so - to remodel their businesses to maximise the potential from those sectors which remain relatively buoyant, and a concerted strategy of diversification has been at the heart of recovery for many firms. Also helping to reverse the industry's woes of the past two years has been a greater focus, particularly among the larger players, away from the beleaguered domestic market towards more promising international markets from which several firms have managed to secure strong growth.
