First ever European FM Providers survey is launched to improve market transparency

The current pandemic has brought the importance of Facility Management (FM) into the spotlight, as organisations around the globe reassess their real estate requirements. Within this climate, Drees & Sommer in collaboration with RICS launch the first ever European FM Provider Report. A comprehensive survey of FM providers across Europe, with the aim of giving clients the most up to date and objective information to help them make the best decisions for their needs.

This unique report aims to increase the transparency of Facility Management (FM) providers in the European market. Because of the broad spectrum of FM services, meaningful market data has been largely lacking, and comparability difficult to achieve. The report provides companies that require FM services an overview of the market allowing them to identify and target potential suppliers, taking into account the number of employees, regional and functional criteria.

If a company is interested in an international or even just a national FM sourcing strategy, the right market data would need to be pulled together from scratch, which is generally quite a time-consuming process. This report aims to enable companies to skip this step and offer FM providers the opportunity to showcase their international credentials.

The current report contains an in-depth analysis and summary for 21 FM service providers, as well as an overview of a further 28 service providers. In the future, the report will be updated on a cyclical basis; enriched with more information and the latest trends in international sourcing. In addition, an online database is already in the pipeline which will provide daily, up-to-date data as well as offering a detailed analysis of specific countries or special services.

The report is available to download here.
