Education Consultants in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Education Consultants

The Education Consultants industry offers noninstructional services to both students and educational institutions, a service that has experienced an increase in popularity over the past five years, helping the industry grow strongly over the period. As college has become increasingly important for students and their families, citizens have become much more willing to contract industry consultants to advise on how to prepare their students for the admissions process. General economic growth has been a boon to the industry over the past five years.Over the next five years, many of the trends that are driving current performance are expected to endure, as income levels and the number of college students are expected to continue rising. However, slight price competition is expected to slow revenue growth slightly.

This industry provides noninstructional services to help students and organizations with educational planning. Education consultants are primarily self-employed, while school counselors are employed by a school. This industry does not include education branches of larger consulting firms, which are included in the Management Consulting industry (IBISWorld report 54161).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
