Looking for insight into opportunities in the evolving field service market for 2024? Not all market segments will respond uniformly to the current economic conditions. Therefore, a targeted approach can yield substantial returns.

Based on an acceleration in store openings, there is a significant opportunity for field service projects in discount, specialty apparel, accessories, and convenience stores. These vertical segments require specific types of technology projects to enhance operational efficiency and customer experiences.

Consistent with these trends, security, cabling, networking, signage, IoT, and telecom/VOIP are among the fastest-growing categories of on-demand field service labor. At the same time, PC deployments are experiencing a notable rebound. This data underscores the importance of aligning field service strategies with the unique needs and trends within various retail segments for sustained success.
