The Specialised Design Services industry has a low level of market share concentration, with the largest operator expected to account for less than 1.0% of industry revenue. The average enterprise is expected to account for less than $340,000 in 2014-15 and employ only 1.8 people. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, in 2012-13, 65.8% of operators were individual owner-operators, 33.4% had between one and 19 employees and 0.9% had 20 to 200 employees.
