Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

The Actuarial Consulting Services industry has medium barriers to entry but high barriers to success for new market entrants. It does not cost much to set up an actuarial consulting practice, but operators must have a range of qualifications to practise in the industry. Furthermore, the industry is highly fragmented, and although there are a significant number of very large operators, and market share concentration is high, there are also a number of smaller enterprises, offering some respite for smaller firms pursuing niche clients. The top four companies in the industry have a combined estimated market share of 47.1%.
