Software Outsourcing: The Growing Demand for Software Roles and the Role of Outsourcing

The article aims to discuss how business process outsourcing, particularly software outsourcing helps IT sectors.

The global IT outsourcing market were valued at USD 333.7 billion in 2019, and it is expected to reach USD 397.6 billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 4.5%, during the forecast period (2020 – 2025). 

In the latest “State of Software Engineers” report by tech hiring specialist Hired, the demand for software engineers doubled in 2021, as the pandemic exacerbated a growing talent crunch.

Hired tracked 224,367 interview requests for software engineering roles in 2021, up from 106,101 in the heavily pandemic-impacted 2020. (Infoworld)

About 64% of outsourced offshore technology functions have to do with software application development.
