The number of medium-skilled tasks in IT/BPO market in India might increase from 9,00,000 to 10,00,000 by 2022, while the number of high-skilled tasks might increase to 5,10,000 in 2022 from 3,20,000 in 2016.

The pattern in India shows the international situation, as internationally low-skilled IT/BPO tasks are anticipated to fall by 31 percent, while medium-skilled tasks might increase by 13 percent and high-skilled tasks might increase by 57 percent.

Following the adoption of automation, the net task loss in Indian IT/BPO sector throughout ability levels is anticipated to be around 4,50,000, from 36.5 lakh in 2016 to 32 lakh in 2022.
