The global services landscape continued to experience growth in 2019, though at a slower pace in terms of both revenue and headcount due to a global macroeconomic slowdown, tightening legal/regulatory landscape (GDPR, Brexit), and volatile currency fluctuations. Market activity for new center setups was high across regions, though new center setups grew at slower pace in 2019 over 2018. For new center setups, engineering/R&D and IT services continue to experience the highest growth.
