Deltek, a provider of enterprise software and information solutions for professional services firms and government contractors, has released a new research report that predicts demand for architecture and engineering (A/E) services by the U.S. government will increase to $9.5 billion in 2016 from $8.1 billion in 2011, at a compounded annual growth rate of 3.2%.
"Federal Architecture & Engineering Market Outlook, 2011-2016" report shows that while overall agency budgets are under tremendous pressure, policy initiatives that drive cost savings will create opportunities specifically for architecture and engineering firms, and provide modest federal market growth over the next five years.
Deltek's report provides analysis of key issues and trends that will shape the size and direction of the federal marketplace and future spending, and provides guidance on where A/E vendors can find the greatest opportunities.
Federal Architecture & Engineering Market Outlook, 2011-2016 provides historic federal spending trends for A/E, construction, and maintenance, as well as analysis of top agency buyers of A/E services and forecasts for future government spending. The report also examines vendor-side market pressures and competitive trends and offers recommendations for maximizing corporate market positioning. For example, Petty suggests A/E firms refocus business development efforts on areas of opportunity such as civil works programs, military family needs, maintenance and repair, and U.S. infrastructure in order to weather the otherwise weak market.
