Research and Markets: 2012 Report on the $11 Billion US Environmental Consulting Services Market Featuring Veolia Environmental, Tetra Tech, and ENSR Int


DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Environmental Consulting Services" report to their offering.

The US environmental consulting services industry includes more than 8,000 companies with combined annual revenue of about $11 billion. Top firms include Veolia Environmental Services North America, Tetra Tech, and ENSR International, as well as environmental engineering and consulting divisions of large engineering and construction firms such as Bechtel, CH2M HILL, and URS. The industry is fragmented: the 50 largest firms account for less than 30 percent of industry revenue.

The global environmental consulting industry generates about $25 billion in revenue annually, according to Environment Analyst. The US and Western Europe are the largest markets for environmental consulting services. Major companies outside the US include RPS Group and Environmental Resources Management (both headquartered in the UK); Arcadis (Netherlands); and AMEC Earth & Environmental (Canada).


Demand is driven by the needs of businesses and government agencies to comply with new, existing or anticipated environmental laws and regulations. The profitability of an individual company depends on its ability to accurately predict project costs and to secure contracts with large organizations such as the US government. Large firms have the advantage of providing a wide range of environmental expertise and can thus offer one-stop shopping for clients. Small firms are able to compete by specializing in regional markets or particular areas of expertise.
