UK consultancy market the biggest in Europe
The UK management consultancy market has taken over from Germany as the largest consultancy market in Europe during 2002, according to a new report.
The UK’s turnover in the 2002 consultancy market has been measured at $12.8bn (£7.69bn), compared to Germany’s $12.3bn (£7.39bn).
Despite UK consultancy revenues among MCA members achieving just 4% growth in 2002, the only time it has failed to reach double-digit growth in the last ten years, it was significantly better than the 2% fall across Europe.
The UK market has been driven by strong demand for public sector and financial services, while many businesses are continuing to drive forward with outsourcing projects.
