    Engineering and Design Services market frequently asked questions

    The engineering services market size is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of 4'5 percent to reach $1,209 billion by 2020. The global engineering services market is driven by growing investment in transport, industrial, and commercial infrastructure sectors in the emerging economies.

    Owing to the low-cost talent pool in the APAC region as compared to the players in the EU and US markets, this region has become a favorable destination for the engineering services outsourcing industry. Furthermore, global players are also looking forward to increasing their regional presence in the APAC region through mergers and acquisitions, like the acquisition of Coffey by Tetra Tech and Aurecon's merger with AUP.

    The factors driving the ED services market growth are the need for quicker and less expensive modular designs, industry consolidation/ strategic M&As, sustainable design leading to the rise of niche segments, increasing urbanization, and the use of design tools and techniques to avoid project delays and cost escalations.

    The constraints that the ED services market is facing are a slow investment in projects due to political deadlocks and corruption, poor technology adoption, project execution.

    The major technology-related engineering industry trends include 3D Laser Scanning, BIM 4D/5D, Augmented Reality, Reprographics, 3D Printing, and Construction Robotics.

    Engineering and Design Services market report transcript

    Engineering Services Industry Outlook & Drivers - Global Market Outlook

    • The global engineering and design market is expected to reach USD 1.13 trillion in 2023 from USD 1.07 trillion in 2022 with a growth of 6.1 percent and it is forecasted to grow up to USD 1.32 trillion in 2026 at the CAGR of 5.34 percent

    • Engineering and Design service market is growing in most of the countries with increase in construction activity especially in USA, APAC and Middle East region despite the inflationary pressure and unfavourable economic situation

    • APAC region has the major market share with 48 percent followed by Europe with 24 percent and North America with 18 percent. The developing nations are investing huge amount on infrastructure development which will be a major driving factor for engineering and design services

    Market Outlook

    • The global Engineering and Design services industry is expected to reach USD 1136 billion in 2023 and forecasted to go up to USD 1328 in 2026 billion with a CAGR of 5.34 percent

    • The industry is majorly occupied by APAC region with 48 percent followed by Europe with 24 percent and North America with 18 percent

    • The demand for Engineering and Design services industry is majorly driven from the investment from various government for the development of infrastructure in their country. The increasing global population demands for increase in residential construction also have significant contribution to the industry

    • The global economic condition and anticipation of recession across most of the region hinders the investors to proceed with construction activity, this could affect the engineering and design industry significantly

    Engineering Design Services Market: Drivers and Constraints


    • Modular Design: Buyers in mature markets demand quicker and less expensive construction, which in turn, stresses the need for modular designs

    • Industry Consolidation/M&A: The demand for intelligent design, and to solve complex construction, has resulted in the expansion of service portfolios by strategic M&As

    • Sustainable Design: Sustainable design is of high demand in the market, currently, leading to the rise of niche segments, such as lighting and energy design

    • Urbanization: With levels of urbanization to reach 50 percent in APAC and Africa, between 2020 and 2035, respectively, there will be increased consumption of products and services, encouraging various industries to develop their facilities and offices in these economies

    • Project Design Time: Increased design complexity and fast-paced projects lead to delays and cost escalations, thus encouraging the use of design tools and techniques


    • Project Funding: Public investments in infrastructure projects remain slow, due to political deadlocks, biased politics, and corruption, thereby delaying the projects as a whole

    • Recruiting & Retaining Staff: Skilled workers have left the industry, due to economic downturn and Corona Virus pandemic. There is an insufficient number of skilled younger workers

    • Project Execution: In case of ED firm + GC, the GC may face difficulties in taking cost and time advantages in the construction phase
