Market outlook of the ESO market in APAC

Technavio’s research analyst predicts the engineering services outsourcing (ESO) market in APAC to grow at a CAGR of close to 11% during the forecast period. With globalization, a number of companies are expanding their global reach by foraying into different regions with less mature markets. Market trends strongly indicate that customers in developing regions such as India and China would increase their expectation on the localization of products to meet their requirements accurately. Especially, in industries such as healthcare, consumers expect products designed according to local conditions. This need for product localization is driving the demand for ESO in these regions.

Despite the steadily growing market, protecting IP remains a major challenge for vendors in the market. Outsourcing-associated risks include theft, misuse of trade secrets, or loss of IP rights. ESO solution providers act as an interface between companies and clients. They play a significant role in shaping the future of engineering services by providing value-based services in addition to cost-effectiveness.
