Offshore – The Book

From 0 to 60 in two decades. Within a single generation, the Indian Offshore Services industry has emerged out of nowhere and become an industry of enormous size and significance. With annual revenues of $60bn, the industry now employs more than 2 million people and is the engine driving the Indian economy. It has redefined the image of India to the world. Its impact is felt not just in India but around the world.

The Offshore Services industry attracts a lot of media coverage but very little in-depth analysis. This book explores the Indian offshore services industry from the inside. What conditions created this juggernaut in just two decades? Can it keep growing at this rate? How big can it get? And what challenges does it face in the future?

These questions are answered by industry veterans Basab Pradhan and Gaurav Rastogi in their forthcoming book, Offshore. The authors explain the complexities of the industry and the challenges it faces in the next decade in plain English, without resorting to code or jargon.

Whether you are in the industry or just curious about it, this is a book you won’t want to miss.
