The Asia-Pacific region posted a total contract value (TCV) of US$2.3 billion for the first six months of the year. This is significantly lower than 2009’s US$5.5 billion TCV for the same period.
According to TPI Index Asia-Pacific, this can be attributed to the slow outsourcing activity in the region, particularly the significant drop in the number of mega deals and contracts amounting to more than US$200 million, though Michael Rehkopf, partner and director of North Asia at TPI, said the market can still improve the figures. "In order to reach 2009 level, the industry will require a record US$8.7 billion TCV in the second half of 2010."
The region needs to close several mega outsourcing deals worth over US$200 million within the year to reach US$11 billion. While the industry had secured 18 BPO contracts and another 10 deals will be awarded within the year, these are considered small contracts when it comes to calculating TCV.
