Everest Group Launches Global Top 50 List for Engineering Services Providers | Press Release

Posted On July 11, 2019

Altran is No. 1 in the industry, Alten takes No. 2, and HCL ranks No. 3 among world’s largest third-party engineering services providers

Everest Group today announced the launch of “The Everest Group Engineering Services Top 50™,” an annual ranking of the world’s largest third-party providers of engineering services (ES). The list identifies the largest ES providers, their growth and coverage cutting across geography and verticals. The global ES market is valued at more than US$40 billion.

“The design-to-development process has traditionally been something enterprises kept in-house, but the need for scalability and rapid innovation has compelled them to consider third-party providers,” said Akshat Vaid, vice president at Everest Group. “As a result, engineering services providers have grown, with both more and larger deals as they have expanded their industry breadth, solution breadth and global footprint. They are also developing domain expertise and gaining scale through IP engagements and acquisitions. The market is becoming more favorable to engineering services providers as more high-end engineering services opportunities are being outsourced.”

Topping the 2019 list of ES providers are these 10 leaders:
1. Altran
2. Alten
3. HCL Technologies
4. AVL
5. AKKA Technologies
6. Accenture
7. Tata Consultancy Services
8. Wipro
9. AF
10. L&T Technology Services

The ranking is based on both revenues (75% of the composite score used for ranking) and year-on-year growth for the calendar year 2018. Growth has two sub-parameters: absolute growth (measured as change in ES revenue in US$ million and accounting for 12.5% of the composite score) and percentage growth (measured as percentage change in ES revenue and accounting for the final 12.5% of the composite score).
