Gartner predicts strong BPO growth in India, both captive as well as outsourced. The current global BPO market stands at $173 bil, which is expected to rise to $27.7 bil by 2007. Indian offshore BPO will grab $13.8 bil from the total, or approximately 49% of the pie. The boom is estimated on a Gartner survey, which reveals that 19% of companies in the US are planning to outsource in the next 24 months, as opposed to a meager 1% who are currently outsourcing.
