India is the world's largest sourcing destination, accounting for approximately 55 per cent of the US$ 146 billion market.

India’s highly qualified talent pool of technical graduates is one of the largest in the world and is available at a cost saving of 60-70 per cent to source countries. This large pool of qualified skilled workforce has enabled Indian IT companies to help clients to save US$ 200 billion in the last five years.
India’s IT industry amounts to 12.3 per cent of the global market, largely due to exports. Export of IT services accounted for 56.12 per cent of total IT exports (including hardware) from India. The Business Process Management (BPM) segment accounted for 23.46 per cent of total IT exports during FY15. The IT-BPM sector is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 9.5 per cent to US$ 300 billion by 2020.
