Analysis & OutlookRajesh Prabhakar Analyst Bio @ http://analysiscasestudy.blogspot.com/Geographically companies in Americas dominate the outsourcing industry with TCV of US$95.8bn followed by Europe, Middle East & Africa with US$ 36.0bn and Asia Pacific with US$18.7bn. Europe has seen a fall in terms of deal value by 21% courtesy the ongoing EuropeanSovereign Debt crisis which is having a significant effect of the Europe as a whole and most ofthe countries have been drastically affected by the crisis. Asia is also gaining as companies inmost of the Asian countries are also outsourcing to cut costs and increase their profitability.Most of the deals worth US$ 64.9bn are in the range between US$ 100mn – US$500mn but thecompanies are still doing big deals that are more than US$ 500mn but less than US$ 1bn with aTCV of US$ 50bn. But overall the contract values of the deals are coming down when the dealsare coming up for renewals. Companies are renewing deals at a lower value than previouslyoutsourced. Companies are looking for significant discounts in pricing for the renewal deals andare also changing the outsourcing vendors if necessary which is leading to vendor churn in theindustry.Less than US$100mn deals are with a TCV of US$ 35.5bn.The Deal tenure has also come down as in the initial stages of outsourcing most of the deals weresigned for 7-10 years and this trend has changed in the last two years when most of the deals arebeing signed for tenure of 1-5 years and the TCV is US$ 96.9bn. Deals with tenure of more than5 years are also being signed and the TCV is US$ 52 bn. The deal size which most of thecompanies are looking at is around 4-5 years and less than 1 year deals are very small.Pricing too has seen a significant change where in most of the deals (97%) are based on Fixedpricing and Hybrid pricing. Hybrid pricing deals are more complex hybrid pricing structures thatcombine input based pricing, output based pricing, and occasionally business outcome-basedpricing mechanisms. In fact Hybrid pricing deals have significantly increased in the last threeyears as companies want their outsourcing vendors to not only reduce cost but also provide themmore value based and outcome based services that will directly affect their business outcomes.
