Outlook of the engineering services outsourcing market in the US

Technavio’s market research analyst estimates the engineering services outsourcing (ESO) market in the US to grow at an impressive CAGR of over 22% by 2020. The ability of outsourced services to reduce operating costs and to optimize return on investment will spur the prospects for growth in this market during the forecast period. With the help of ESO services, enterprises can get support for a variety of capabilities, which includes working with the company's supply chain, designing manufactured parts, or developing aftermarket support for technical and engineering documentation. Furthermore, the capability of ESO to boost the product development processes is a critical factor that will enhance this market’s growth potential until 2020.

The rising need for pilot execution is a key driver for the growth of this market. Since the US considers outsourcing as a possible route for pilot execution, it offers companies the levy of flexible resource capacity based on project needs and market dynamics. Recently, it has been observed that enterprises with low experience are setting up captive centers in low-cost countries to outsource pilot execution. This helps to eliminate the need for large upfront investment, which in turn propels market growth during the forecast period.
