Number of management consultants employed in the U.S. 2012-2018 Management consulting is a growing industry in the United States; since 2012 the number of management consultants in the U.S. has increased every year, reaching 684,470 consultants in 2018.
Management consulting

Management consultants provide external advice to organizations on how they can improve their performance. The business areas which management consultants advise on can broadly be divided into three categories: operational improvements, business strategy, and staff development. Together, these three segments account for the majority of revenue generated by the consulting services industry worldwide. Environmental consulting is sometimes also considered a form of management consulting; however, revenue generated from environmental consulting is considerably smaller than revenue from other business areas.

U.S. and global market

Revenue generated by management consulting has grown consistently over the 2010s in both the United States and globally. This growth has created its own challenges though. In a recent survey, market consultants listed increased competition as the biggest challenge they face.
