The Everest Group Engineering Services Top 50 represented 82% (more than US $60 billion) of the estimated US $73 billion in total outsourced spending in 2022. The global ES industry grew 11 to 11.5% between 2021 and 2022.

“ES providers have continued to boost their engineering capabilities and acquire companies to increase scale and gain access to new markets,” said Akshat Vaid, partner at Everest Group. “Outsourcing has increased from 2021, driven by a platformization wave, increased investments in connected and electric cars, and a rise in sustainability and green technology practices toward software and digital engineering.”
