Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • In the future, the adoption of online training is expected to bolster the industry
  • Depressed demand and profit caused industry players to cut back on operational costs
  • Improving profit margins are expected to continue to bring more operators into the industry
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Business Coaching industry is heavily reliant on demand from its largest market, the middle and senior management of US corporations. After rebounding from a period where businesses cut back on nonessential expenses, including employee business coaching programs, the industry is expected to flourish over the five years to 2017. Although some companies will use internal resources for training, industry revenue is forecast to increase albeit at a slightly slower rate over the five years to 2022. In the future, the adoption of online training is expected to bolster the industry. This alternative is a more affordable and flexible option for customers and offers lower operating costs for training providers, putting upward pressure on margins.
