Pakistan IT Industry

July 8, 2008 at 7:59 pm 2 comments

Jawwad farid of Alchemya posted about quite an interesting study regarding the Pakistan IT industry. According to this study the size of the industry is around $2 Billion with most firms experiencing a growth of around 30%.

Some other interesting bits from this study are:

– 13 of these companaies have annual revenues of more than $10 Million.

– 58% of exports go to USA.

– Pakistan ranks 74th out of 159 countries in the “ease of doing business”.

I personally think that these revenue numbers are understated. They definitely don’t take into account the individuals/freelancers working for thousands of offshore clients through portals like oDesk, elance, and personal referrals.

This report is published by P@SHA.

      Denise – i'm so glad you stopped by. Self publishing is definitely not for the faint (feint?) of heart (thank goodness for spell-check) … thanks for sharing your story and for the link to Ev3nly&#0e9;s excellent post as well.
