In the process, it was also able to turn itself into a business transformation enabler for its clients. With a renewed value proposition, we look forward to a terrific future with growth estimates of 13-15% in FY11 for the export sector and 15-17% for the India market.”

Mr. Som Mittal, President, NASSCOM said, “It’s a historic moment for the Indian IT-BPO industry as it touches the USD 50 billion landmark. The growth was led by domestic market buoyed by increased Government spending in IT. In addition, new areas such as Engineering Services and Product Development displayed phenomenal momentum clocking a combined revenue of over USD 10 billion.

With 450 delivery centers in 60 countries across the world, the industry has an unparalleled global value chain. The industry has also enhanced its global workforce, hiring specialized talent in developed markets and building a truly global delivery model.”

As per the findings, the coming years are going to represent a significant shift in terms of business models, service lines, customers and talent structure. There will be increased focus on higher end offerings such as system integration, consulting, business intelligence, knowledge services and vertical specific BPO services.

The industry is expected to generate an increasing share of revenues from the untapped SMB segment through improved pay per use business models and platform solutions. It is also expected to acquire domain expertise and near shoring capabilities to further advance India’s value proposition as a global outsourcing hub.
