Now a days, it is an industry that thrives globally, and India's IT exports are around $70 billion with 2.8 million employees working in this sector.

India's IT industry is expected to grow at a rate of 12 - 14% as per a report by India's software industry body NASSCOM. Employment in the computer and information technology field is expected to grow by 13 percent between 2016 and 2026, according to the United States Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics. This clearly shows that information technology is a sector which will likely be one of the emerging markets in the days to come as India's economy requires more hardware, software and other IT services.
