Natural Disaster & Emergency Relief Services in the US

The Natural Disaster and Emergency Relief Services industry is expected to grow over the five years to 2018. Although dominated by nonprofit organizations, this industry is also composed of for-profit companies that provide direct assistance to communities affected by domestic and global disasters. Industry revenue, which is generated mostly from government funding and private donations, exhibited some volatility over the past five years due to the unpredictable occurrence of natural disasters. Over the five years to 2023, revenue is projected to continue its growth, albeit at a slower pace.

Industry establishments provide food, shelter, clothing, medical relief, resettlement and counseling to victims of domestic or international disasters. Industry operators respond to natural and manmade crises, including earthquakes, fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, hazardous material spills, wars and acts of terrorism. This industry excludes government agencies and organizations that provide housing or food to the homeless, victims of domestic violence and the elderly.

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.
