The global market for design firms has been weak for the past four years. Now, as the market has begun to struggle back, a new level of uncertainty has hit the industry from nationalist and populist movements in many major markets and the looming threat of a trade war. The uncertainty in the market can be seen in the results of ENR’s Top 225 International Design Firms survey. The Top 225 firms generated $64.59 billion in design revenue in 2017 from projects outside their home countries, up just 0.7% from $64.11 billion in 2016. This comes after fi ve straight years of declining revenue for the Top 225. Further, the Top 225 had $79.47 billion in revenue from domestic projects in 2017, up a paltry 0.2% from $79.30 billion in 2016.
The table below shows only rankings, firm name and firm type. For the complete data list see the following links.
