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 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
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
Industry Best Practices : Engineering Design Services
Financial assessment and insurance liability, of the contractor
Early on involvement of construction firm to enable innovation in design and construction process
Right construction professional allocated for the respective job
Hiring contract employees to increase flexibility for non-strategic roles
Centralized sourcing of design and construction management services for spend control
Supply Trends and Insights : Engineering Design Services
Regional Perspective : Top suppliers in the regions includes global players and regional firms. Especially in engineering construction market, top 10 firms hold more than 70 percent of the market share. Housing construction sector is predominantly held by regional construction firms with high market share. Due to the pandemic, majority of the firms suffered net losses in the quarter, heavy competition will be prevalent among the top suppliers especially in the infrastructure segment and top clientele for suppliers could get discounts or lower, as contractors will try to secure more contract awards and keep their market share
New Technology Adoption:
Suppliers are expected to increase use of technologies like BIM, laser scanning, drones, 3D printing, modularization, prefabrication techniques and other digital technologies for remote working and collaborations
Top suppliers are investing in sustainable construction practices to reduce the overall carbon footprint, as the world slowly moves towards reducing carbon reducing green practices
Most Adopted Model Globally:
Integrated project delivery, EPCM, EPC
EPC: Single point of contact and risk borne by EPC service provider
EPCM: Owner have more control over the entire process and quick scale of resources
Integrated project delivery: Parallel execution of design and execution phases, fast track components of the projects
