The global banking BPO market has been growing at 8-10% with significant variations seen across the years, driven by macroeconomic environment, regulatory compliance initiatives, and other factors. New contract signings is the major driver for BPO adoption, while renewals continue to remain strong as buyers prefer to continue with their existing vendors. However, increased digital adoption and maturity of automation solutions is leading to lower FTE requirements for the industry. This has prompted service providers to look for other avenues of growth.
