Asia Pacific Outsourcing Market Surges in Second Half of 2010, Up 11 Percent

TPI, an Information Services Group company (Nasdaq: III) and the largest sourcing data and advisory firm in the world, today released data showing a strong finish to 2010 for the Asia Pacific outsourcing market, with a second-half surge that eclipsed the region’s lackluster first half.

The 2H10 Asia Pacific TPI Index, which measures commercial contracts valued at more than US$25 million, recorded second-half total contract value (TCV) of US$6.1 billion, an 11 percent increase over the same period a year ago and a 160 percent increase over the first half of 2010. Driven by restructuring activity and mega-relationships – those contracts with an annualized value of more than US$100 million – it was the region’s strongest half-year performance since 2008.

“2010 saw a return to the roller coaster nature of awards in our region,” said Arno Franz, Partner and President, Asia Pacific, TPI. “The return of mega-relationships in the second half of the year did much to bolster TCV overall. That was in sharp contrast to the first half, when clients were still taking a ‘wait-and-see’ approach to awarding contracts due to the Global Financial Crisis.”

The Asia Pacific TPI Index provides a semi-annual snapshot of the sourcing industry for clients, service providers, analysts and the media. It is the industry’s authoritative source for marketplace intelligence related to outsourcing transaction structures and terms, industry adoption, geographic prevalence and service provider metrics.

“Looking ahead, compared to this time last year, indications are that the increased activity we saw in the second half of 2010 will continue,” Franz said.
