Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

This industry is characterized by many small-scale consultants, often individual proprietors and partners who operate in narrow geographic markets. Although a majority of industry establishments do not have a payroll, nonemployers generate only about 10.0% of industry revenue. The fragmented nature of this industry is also evident when comparing the size of enterprises that have employees. In 2016, an estimated 67.4% of firms with a payroll have fewer than five employees and only 1.0% of firms have more than 100 workers. The industry's low level of concentration means that no firm holds a dominant position in the market; IBISWorld estimates that the four largest players account for less than 5.0% of industry revenue in 2016.
