The coronavirus pandemic has taken a heavy toll on the management-consulting industry.

The coronavirus pandemic has taken a heavy toll on the management-consulting industry.

The market for consultants has declined this year to an estimated $132 billion from $160 billion because of decreased client demand, according to research platform Statista. The crisis put a strain on corporate budgets, forcing some to cancel or pause projects with major clients. Giant advisory firms including KPMG and Accenture have laid off thousands of workers, and some consultancies like Ernst & Young have deferred promotions and performance bonuses for employees.

COVID-19 forced leading consultancies to cut travel budgets, shut down offices, and collaborate remotely with clients and colleagues.
