Economic Activity Diversification Creating Incremental Demand for Engineering Services

Infrastructure development is not just an indicator of economic growth but also for supporting economic activity. Engineering service firms provide design, planning, and consulting for infrastructure development such as highways, bridges, tunnels, water sources, and others. With rising investments in infrastructure development worldwide, demand for engineering service outsourcing is projected to rise at a significant rate over the coming years.

  • As per the International Transport Forum, investments in inland infrastructure as a percentage of GDP varied from 0.2% to 5.8%. China accounts for a leading percentage of 5.8%, and Mexico with the least percentage of 0.2%.

As such, increasing investments in infrastructure development across the world are expected to drive market growth over the studied period.

  • Short Term (2022-2025): Post-COVID there has been an increase in infrastructure development, industrial building, manufacturing plants, and others. This factor will result in significant growth of the engineering consulting services market.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Developing economies such as China, India, and others from the Asia Pacific region account for a substantial share of infrastructure development. Therefore, the market will see potential growth opportunities in way of expansion among developing economies.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Globally, infrastructure development is expected to rise during this period. Along with growing population & urbanization, it may lead to an increase in the automotive, aircraft, and building sectors, which is expected to create potential opportunities for market growth.

The global engineering services market expanded at a CAGR of 5.2% between 2017 and 2021, according to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider. As per the analysis, the market is projected to progress further at a 5.6% CAGR through 2032.
