Some parts of APAC drive the outsourcing demand due to rising domestic demand

However, a moderate number of contracts are expected to move toward nearshore locations, such as LATAM, and emerging destinations like the Caribbean, Central America and Eastern Europe

  • The rising demand for contact center analytics and support on different channels, such as social media and around-the-clock mobile services, requires specialized and dedicated capabilities to provide better customer experience
  • Buyers are expected to spend more on contact center outsourcing in order to partner with third-party service providers to meet these needs Rising demand from small and medium businesses
  • Small and medium players will find it increasingly difficult to compete with top players in their fields and will look to outsource processes to limit expenses and tighten budgets


  • Rising quality concern and very limited cost saving
  • Very frequently raising quality issues and reducing the cost difference between outsourcing and managing in-house influences the buyer's decision of outsourcingRegulation implications
  • Various regulations, such as the Dodd-Frank Act, Basel III, MIFID II, OCC Guidelines and FRB restricts companies to keep personal, financial and confidential data within the country's boundary. This restricts outsourcing various processes to other locations
