Ecology market just keeps on growing

The UK environmental consultancy market saw a 5.6% increase to stand at £1.42 billion in 2013, according to Environment Analyst’s latest UK Market Assessment Final Data report.

The performance in 2013 is significantly up on the 3.1% growth in 2012 and 1.9% in 2011, and brings the market ever closer to surpassing its pre-recession peak of £1.56 billion achieved in 2008. Furthermore, indications are that UK EC market is on course to achieve a healthy increase of approximately 5% in 2014, reflecting the economic recovery and return to growth in construction – in particular the house-building sector.

Increased investment in government-supported national infrastructure projects has also played a big part in the market rebound. The number-one discipline EIA has surpassed its pre-recession peak value by a significant margin. This is as a result of its strong underlying legislative drivers. Ecological/landscape services represent 10.8% of the UK Environmental Consultancy market. Ecology services are projected to grow by a five-year CAGR of 5.7% or more.
