The Global Financial meltdown a boon for Research Outsourcing firms in India
Bangalore, India - November 06, 2008 - Abraham Thomas, Business Head at Market Equations, a technology enabled Management Consulting & Market Research Outsourcing company, speaks about Global Financial meltdown impacting the IT and ITES industry in India, industry bodies reducing forecasts from 30% to 24%, and a large majority of players announcing 25% job cuts in the coming weeks, the Outsourcing Industry is experiencing one of its worst times in over a decade.
As Abraham Thomas, Business Head at Market Equations puts it, "The Market Research Outsourcing Industry in India is also seeing a lot of positive activity as companies face tremendous pressure to keep cost down. Combined with the need to track consumer behavior and their changing tastes and preferences with the US economic downturn, outsourcers are exploring opportunities that combine low costs and high value propositions. A large pool of intellectual resources combined with comparatively lower operating costs puts India based Market Research Outsourcing firms who have embedded these two key propositions at a very strong lead."
Analysts are certain that the Wall Street collapse will definitely open up large opportunities for Research Outsourcing providers in India. This call's for reframing the common joke - "When America Sneezes, our Industry will catch a cold here in India". India seems to be fairly well equipped to keep the flu away. Companies who realign their strategies to provide high value services will still reap the benefits of the Golden age of Outsourcing.
