About This Report


Although trends in the US economy impact the level of donations made to industry operators, demand is also highly dependent on the occurrence of natural disasters. Disaster relief revenue is, therefore, subject to the volatile and unpredictable incidences of natural disasters. So, while the industry's major revenue sources declined at the beginning of the past five-year period, and then recovered in the latter half, industry revenue has fluctuated independently of these trends, alternating annually between growth and decline. However, in the five years to 2019, revenue for the Natural Disaster and Emergency Relief Services industry is projected to increase. Nonetheless, revenue growth is projected to contract in the immediate term, compressed by discretionary spending cuts at the state and federal levels. Fortunately, private sector charitable funding, including corporate and individual donations, is anticipated to recover steadily, yielding strong revenue growth in the second half of the coming five-year period.

Industry establishments provide food, shelter, clothing, medical relief, resettlement and counseling to victims of domestic or international disasters. Industry operators respond to natural and manmade crises, including earthquakes, fires, tornadoes, hurricanes, hazardous material spills, wars and acts of terrorism. This industry excludes government agencies and organizations that provide housing or food to the homeless, victims of domestic violence and the elderly.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
