Report Overview

The Asia Pacific business process outsourcing market size was estimated at USD 66.27 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.7% from 2023 to 2030. Back-office operations and management are vital for any organization. Various transactional processes, such as order fulfillment, application processing, and collection and billing, contribute toward a large accumulation of data and enhanced back-office solutions necessary to process all the accumulated data.

Rapid proliferation of service delivery platforms and rising demand for outsourcing BPO services across various end-use industries is also expected to boost the regional market growth.

The BPO market participants provide dependable and cost-effective services to a variety of industries and sectors, including banking, financial services, insurance (BFSI), manufacturing, retail, IT and telecommunications, and healthcare, among others. Companies in these industries desire to incorporate BPO as part of their business plan to boost profitability. Over the next few years, BFSI is predicted to grow at a rapid rate in the coming years. BPO in BFSI overcomes industry difficulties by assuring data management and data integrity, as well as providing accurate, relevant, and timely data delivery to improve decision-making.

Companies are placing greater emphasis on core activities to maintain their market position and expand their customer base, which results in the outsourcing of resources for non-core activities. Companies engaging in business process outsourcing can choose to outsource specific services or business functions based on their individual requirements, including payroll, IT, logistics, and legal services. Reduction of labor costs as well as reducing and/or eliminating overheads arising from human resources and equipment are some of the potential benefits of outsourcing.

Services such as training and recruitment require additional effort and time. As a result, some companies opt for outsourcing human resources services. For instance, Accenture is one of the pioneers engaged in offering human resources and finance and accounting services. The company’s human resource service includes workforce performance, recruitment, payroll, benefits and compensation, and other learning and employee services. The company’s human resource services cater to clients, such as Microsoft, General Motors, IBM, and Goodyear, among others.

The customer service segment held the largest market share of 33.13% in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR of 12.6% during the forecast period. The rising establishment of service centers that necessitate online and offline technical support has been fueling the segment growth. Interaction with customers opens an opportunity for strengthening the brand and developing customer relationships.

The finance and accounting segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period.

Moreover, the human resource service segment is also anticipated to register a substantial CAGR of over 11.1% over the forecast period, ascribed to the rising need for resources across different sub-segments including payment processing, recruitment and relocation, administration, and other employee benefit services.

End-use Insights

Based on end-use, the market has been segmented into BFSI, healthcare, manufacturing, IT and telecommunications, retail, and others. The IT & Telecommunications segment held the largest market share of 35.59% in 2022 owing to the growth of IT companies and rapid industrialization. In addition, the government's support to improve the economy by encouraging sectors such as banking and healthcare is projected to boost their investments in technology.
