Field service trends and predictions for 2022

Hear Wael Mohammed, EVP of Strategy at Field Nation, unpack the trends driving volatility in costs and demand across work types, industries, and regions.

April 21, 2022


Service leaders responsible for on-site work know that market dynamics over the past 12 months have been impossible to follow and even harder to predict. Demand is reaching record highs. Labor, equipment, and travel costs are rising at an accelerated pace.


The compound impact creates a challenging dilemma for service leaders: how can they respond to demand and keep costs in check without data to back their decisions? With data mined from millions of work orders, we’ll arm you with the information you need to stay one step ahead of these unpredictable market shifts.


  • Actions you can take now to capitalize on growth trends while minimizing costs.
  • How the current market affects field service costs (labor, travel, and equipment).
  • Which work types, industries, and regions are growing, and which are stagnant.

"2022 will produce an unprecedented amount of field service work. For service delivery leaders, this means a once-in-a-generation opportunity to capitalize on the macroeconomic trends driving technology change at sites nationwide."
