BPO Philippines Posts 26% Growth

The Philippine business process outsourcing (BPO) industry posted a year-on-year growth of 26%, earning $8.9 billion for 2010, the domestic industry association announced yesterday.

The Business Processing Association of the Philippines (BPAP) said the contact center sub-sector made the highest growth at 21%, generating $6.1 billion in earnings. The growth enabled the Philippines to overtake India in voice-based services. According to Benedict Hernandez, president of the Contact Center Association of the Philippines (CCAP), "The Philippines now leads the world in voice-based customer service."

Employment among BPO companies also increased by almost a quarter, for a total of 525,000 employees for 2010, according to BPAP records. "We achieved robust growth in all major sectors of the industry: voice-based BPO, non-voice business support and complex services, and information technology," announced BPAP chairman Alfredo Ayala.

BPAP said they expect an annual growth of 15% until 2016 – by that time the industry would involve two million jobs generating $20 billion in revenues. "But with greater collaboration from all stakeholders, including government and the academe, we have the potential to grow at 25% a year. This would create 1.3 million direct jobs, 3.2 million indirect jobs, and $25 billion in export revenues," Ayala opined.
