The Philippines, as an offshore delivery location, has matured tremendously over the last few years. It almost doubled its share in the global IT-BPS market during 2008 and 2014, to become the second largest offshore location, next only to India. Predominantly a multinational service providers’ playing field, the Philippines witnessed a spike in establishments and expansion by Indian-heritage service providers and Global In-house Centers (GICs) during this period. Further, having established itself as the primary hub for English language contact center delivery, the country is now witnessing significant traction among other IT-BPS segments.
