Business Processing Outsourcing Market Analysis
Business process outsourcing has become incredibly popular with companies ranging from Fortune 500s to startups over the last two decades. Businesses in every industry can now outsource non-core processes while applying more resources to core business functions. Business process outsourcing is a subset of outsourcing that involves contracting third-party service providers for various business-related operations and responsibilities. While manufacturers initially used BPO, pretty much every industry you can think of around the world now uses it as part of their business models. Businesses across all industries have adopted BPO because business process outsourcing solutions provide an array of opportunities for cost reduction and business growth. Business process outsourcing services (including payroll, accounting, data analytics outsourcing) make it easier for businesses to dedicate their time and resources to core business and office operations. BPO also enables businesses to react faster to changing market dynamics by adapting their processes as the market changes.
Global BPO firms are increasingly benefiting from growing complexities in the supply chains, which create a trend wherein companies are looking toward third-party firms for outsourcing their operations. Automation will continue to be a significant threat to low skilled jobs in the BPO sector. Many of the major outsourcing companies intend to make major investments into robotic automation in the coming years. APAC continues to be a vibrant market for the business process outsourcing (BPO) space. The market is primarily driven by the increasing number of global companies expanding their base in the region and partnering with agile business partners to provide them with the required services.
The North America business process outsourcing market accounted for a significant portion of the global market. Growth in the regional market is accredited to flexibility and customization of service offerings in order to better meet individual needs, coupled with an increasing demand for cloud computing technology. However, some of the Asian countries like India and Philippines have shown strong growth in the recent years.
Growing competitiveness from new outsourcing destinations, coupled with the pressure on businesses to run cost-efficiently, will be the driving forces behind the accelerated growth in the BPO industry. Automation will continue to be a significant threat to low skilled jobs in the BPO sector. Many of the major outsourcing companies intend to make major investments in robotic automation in the coming years. The advantages of BPO include cost-efficiency, higher flexibility, better quality and performance, competitive advantage, etc. Outsourced service providers can complete business processes at lower costs because of economies of scale, specialized processes, low-cost countries, etc. Outsourcing non-critical functions allow organizations to use their internal resources for core competencies and essential business functions. BPO also enables businesses to react faster to changing market dynamics by adapting their processes as the market changes.

Business Processing Outsourcing Market Trends
This section covers the major market trends shaping the Business Processing Outsourcing Market according to our research experts:
The America have the largest Business Process Outsourcing Market
The Americas have the largest Business Process Outsourcing Market. North America alone had the largest BPO market than Europe, Middle East, and Africa. New technologies that developed over the past few years, including robotic process automation (RPA), have begun to impact the BPO industry. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) uses bots and artificial intelligence on a user interface to complete work faster, at a cheaper rate. RPA, with its cost savings, speed, and efficiency benefits is slowly making its way into all industries and all types of business processes. While it is an uphill task for many BPO service providers, the top players in the industry are already working today to make robotic process automation part of their standard client services portfolio.
Before 2000, the customer service industry was entirely dependent on websites and interactive voice response (IVR) for transferring a call to the correct representative. Now, around 79% of the US population has at least one social media account, leading to a notable shift in consumer behavior. Instead of call center software programs, companies now want to invest in real-time customer engagement that will allow them to gain first-hand product insights and turn issues into new products or solutions that will address future problems through social media.
Currently, the BPO industry is clearly showing increased optimism overall about market growth and reduced regulations. Businesses are also encouraged by the benefits gained through innovative technologies, such as cloud computing and process automation. Global outsourcing service providers are expected to use new technological innovations to effectively address market challenges, enhance product and services, and manage talent shortages while helping keep operating costs low.

The Use of the Cloud Computing in BPO industry is on rise.
According to industry sources, consumer demands for multi-channel communications have exploded over the past five years. For BPO service providers, this change in customer management is a huge opportunity. Over the last few years, BPOs have been investing in the tools and capabilities to offer a wide range of social media management services. These service offerings range from social media monitoring to business intelligence and actioning customer response. Many BPO service providers are also investing in dedicated social media service teams. Working in tandem, social media teams and customer representatives can deal with customer grievances much faster, leading to higher customer satisfaction and better customer experience.
Small and medium businesses (SMBs) have a limited budget, which is unable to grant the state-of-the-art office space and infrastructure. More and more SMBs are adopting virtual storage and systems to counter a lack of data centers, hardware and software, and the personnel required to implement new technology. The benefits of cloud computing include improved business collaboration due to a standardized system between the BPO company and the client, and higher data security due to impenetrable cloud systems. The adoption of cloud services and investments by top outsourcing companies in this technology will continue further as cloud computing becomes more mainstream, mature, and cost-effective.
