Complete Guide to the Outsourcing & Offshoring Industry From Plunkett Research 2018

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. recently announced an important market research and competitive analysis report, Outsourcing & Offshoring Industry Almanac, 2018 edition. A complete market research report, including forecasts and market estimates, technologies analysis and developments at innovative firms.

Outsourcing has seen recent, significant growth across three broad areas:  1) logistics, sourcing and distribution services; 2) information technology services, including the creation of software and the management of computer centers; and 3) business process outsourcing (BPO) areas such as call centers, financial transaction processing and human resources management.

Offshoring, as opposed to outsourcing, covers such a wide variety of nations, products and practices that it is difficult to put a number on the size of the market. A significant share of offshoring revenue is created by contract manufacturing of electronics, shoes, apparel and accessories.
