Market Size & Trends

The U.S. business process outsourcing market size was valued at USD 70.66 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.1% from 2023 to 2030. The growth can be attributed to the factors such as the growing popularity of cloud computing in BPO and the growing inclination toward outsourcing, especially in industries such as BFSI, HR, and IT & telecommunication. Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) has witnessed significant changes due to the high adoption of cloud computing in the U.S. market. The delivery of BPO services has transformed mainly owing to the rising popularity of cloud computing, which provides numerous benefits to businesses. The cost-effectiveness of cloud computing is one of the main factors contributing to its increasing popularity in BPO.

U.S. Business Process Outsourcing Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Businesses can avoid sizable upfront expenditures in infrastructure, software, and hardware by using cloud-based BPO services, as cloud service providers supply and manage these resources. This enables companies to spend less on capital projects and operating costs, saving money, and improving financial flexibility. U.S.-based organizations are required to have effective back-office administration and operations. There is a growing need for improved back-office solutions due to numerous transactional operations, including application processing, order fulfillment, and collection & billing.

As a result, many businesses prefer to use cloud computing for business process outsourcing. Moreover, cloud-based BPO offers improved mobility and remote access, enabling organizations to access their BPO services and data at any time and location using any internet-connected device. This allows companies to take advantage of a distributed workforce, access global talent, and integrate smoothly across borders, improving cooperation, and efficiency.

Moreover, BPO service providers leverage online computing's capabilities to reduce the time needed to complete data-intensive business procedures. Cloud computing in BPO organizations helps enhance the data processing workflow while reducing turnaround time. The increasing popularity of the web and its high level of dependability has also made it possible to store programs in the cloud rather than in complex infrastructures prone to breakdowns.

Additionally, many industry participants are working to improve the outsourcing process by incorporating cloud computing into their portfolio of business process outsourcing services. Increasing government measures to encourage the use of cloud technology is one of the factors fueling market expansion. The government's growing investments in cloud computing-related fields are anticipated to accelerate industry expansion and increase the demand for outsourcing business processes.

Information and communication technology (ICT) developments have helped the BPO market grow. Enterprises can now outsource labor-intensive services to countries such as India and the Philippines to leverage the advantages of low labor costs and cutting-edge IT infrastructure owing to developments in ICT, along with the increasingly fragmented production processes in these regions. The growth of the IT sector in the U.S., supportive government regulations, and the growing number of IT startups are contributing to the market expansion.

Developing markets generally offer cheaper labor costs than developed economies, making them attractive for outsourcing. Businesses that outsource their processes can save money by using BPO service providers in emerging economies to offer competitive pricing to clients in the U.S. It has become simpler for BPO service providers in emerging economies to interact with customers in the U.S. and other countries owing to globalization and enhanced connectivity, including better internet infrastructure and communication networks.

The manufacturing end-use segment of the U.S. business process outsourcing market is projected to witness a significant growth rate over the forecast period. The growth of the manufacturing segment can be attributed to the benefits of outsourcing, which include cost savings, increased efficiency, better quality, flexibility, and risk management, among others.

However, there are a few disadvantages to outsourcing in the manufacturing industry, including quality control, capacity, lead time management, and contractual agreement, among others. However, the benefits overpower the concerns, which has resulted in a wide range of manufacturing industries opting for manufacturing outsourcing, thereby driving the industry’s growth.
