US Architectural Service Revenues to Increase 2.1% Annually in Nominal Terms to 2023


Cleveland, OH, April 10, 2019 — US architectural service revenues are forecast to rise 2.1% annually in nominal terms through 2023, according to Architectural Services: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. Demand for services from domestic establishments is closely tied to US construction expenditures, which are forecast to rise 4.3% through 2023. Providers of architectural services stand to benefit from a growing emphasis on sustainable design. Value gains over the historical period were promoted by increasing demand for architects and designers certified by the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, which heightened architectural design time and fees among other costs. This factor will continue to support value growth into the forecast period as demand for LEED certification continues to expand. Foreign demand for architectural services provided by US-based establishments will remain severely restrained by competition from establishments outside the US, including the foreign operations of US firms.

These and other key insights are featured in Architectural Services: United States. This report forecasts US architectural services revenues in nominal US dollars to 2023. Total revenues are segmented by market in terms of:

  • nonresidential
