Indian Information Technology Industry Overview

The Information Technology (IT) Sector has been one of the hotshots of Indian economy. Remarkable transformation and growth of the economy has created opportunities both in exporting software and services and in the domestic market. The Indian IT & ITES Sector has grown considerably over the last decade to contribute over 6% of the country’s GDP. The revenue amassed by Indian information technology sector is estimated to have grown by over 5% to reach $73.1 billion in 2009-10. Growth in Indian information technology in the world market is primarily dominated by IT software and services, including system integration, IT consulting, application management, custom applications, infrastructure management, software testing and web development. Competitive factors such as skilled workers, adequate telecommunication networks, and an improving policy and regulatory environment have enabled both domestic and foreign firms to rapidly expand in the internationally competitive IT services sector.

The Indian Software and Services export is estimated to grow at 5.5% and to generate export revenue of $49.7 billion in year 2009-10. The IT services exports is estimated to be $27.3 billion in 2009-10 as compared to US $ 25.8 billion in 2008-09, showing a growth of 5.8%. ITeS-BPO exports are estimated to grow from $11.7 billion in 2008-09 to $12.4 billion in 2009-10, a year-on-year growth of 6%. Though the United States & United Kingdom still remains the dominant market, accounting for about 79%, for the Indian IT-BPO industry, the Continental Europe and Asian markets are catching up as they witness higher growth in demand. In contrast, the IT hardware segment has lagged and has focused very largely on the domestic market, which remains heavily dependent on imports of components and finished IT goods. Government is actively pursuing measures to stimulate the growth of Electronics Hardware Manufacturing Industry in the country.

India is regarded as the premier destination for the global sourcing of IT-ITeS, accounting for almost 51% of the global sourcing market size of $94 billion in 2009. India now has a 62% share of the global technology services market (IT Services, Engineering Services and R&D) of about $58 billion and a 32% share of the Global Business Outsourcing Market of about $37 billion. With the BPO going strong for the past few years, the Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO), which may be called the highest level of the BPO, is still at a nascent stage of development in the country. It is expected that emergence of the KPO market will offer high-value services in off shoring and help the Indian ITeS Industry to climb the global value and knowledge chain.
