Over 200 product-based multinational companies are known to be sourcing part of their product development requirements from their captive offshore centres in India or from third party vendors in the country. Range of services outsourced includes engineering and designing solutions across diverse industry verticals like telecommunications (30% of revenues), automotive (19%), aerospace (8%), construction, utilities and industrial design and research and development divisions of the leading high-tech companies.

Based on the trends witnessed in productivity and the likely growth potential of the IT and ITES industry, it is expected that the industry would result in an incremental employment of about 7.5 million persons directly by 2022.
