The Accounting Services industry has steadily grown over the five years to 2022, buoyed by economic growth early during the period and a continued demand for monetary advisory during the financial challenges of the early 2020s. As revenue has expanded, new operators have entered the industry and competition has intensified, especially between smaller companies. In an attempt to boost market share during the high growth early in the period, the industry's largest players acquired several smaller companies.
Overall, industry revenue is estimated to rise at an annualized rate of 2.0% to $133.0 billion over the five years to 2022, including an increase of 2.6% in 2022. The moderate growth, despite strong demand trends, is largely due to revenue not increasing significantly in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and less demand for noncritical tax services; industry profit has also fallen as a result.
The industry's largest players, including Price, Waterhouse, Coopers, LLP; EY, formerly Ernst & Young; Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited; and KPMG International Limited, have all made acquisition deals over the five years to 2022 to sustain market share, particularly those focusing on advisory services. Meanwhile, smaller industry operators have continued to enter the industry and provide services to small businesses and narrow geographic regions. This is expected to continue over the five years to 2027 as major companies seek to expand their service offerings and new companies enter to capture additional profit, which is indicative of the mature phase of an industry's life cycle.
Potential for Growth
- Additional business development and marketing efforts
- Target more government contracting and commercial clients
- Additional staffing to expand with growing customer base
