Industrial services in Germany
The importance of industrial services when optimizing production processes will continue to increase in the future. The advantages of this for companies are greater efficiency, flexibility, reliability and quality.
For our study "Industrial services in Germany – Status quo and future development", we interviewed decision-makers from companies that use industrial services, simulated a market model and mirrored the lessons with providers of industrial services.
The study shows that total market volume will remain stable in the future at around EUR 29 million, but the trend is clearly toward outsourcing. The (surveyed) companies today spend between 3 and 7% of their revenue on industrial services, varying depending on the industry they are active in. The share of these services rendered by external service providers is around one-third (32%) of the total market, with the trend pointing upward. At the same time, the provider landscape for industrial services is characterized by consolidation – through acquisitions, joint ventures, cooperations and new companies.
