Services Industry Overview
Technology is expanding profit margins of services companies
Competition among services firms and a lack of suitably trained employees contribute to a shortage of labor in the services industry, which is a labor intensive industry. The lack of the right skills and right work experience among candidates, a new phenomenon around the world, affect services companies’ expansion plans. In spite of the lack of skilled employees, the overall world economic growth causes the rise in average wages, making it difficult for services companies to keep the same profit margins with the same quality of work. The Business Research Company expects the services market to grow to $21 trillion by 2022.
The services market consists of the sales of services and related goods earned by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that provide services that include equipment and machinery repairing, promoting or administering religious activities, grant making, advocacy, and providing dry-cleaning and laundry services, personal care services, death care services, pet care services, photofinishing services, temporary parking services, and dating services. A service can be defined as a transaction between a buyer and a seller without the transfer of any physical goods or commodities.
