- Revenue in the IT Services market is projected to reach €925.82bn in 2022.
- The market's largest segment is IT Outsourcing with a projected market volume of €328.18bn in 2022.
- Revenue is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2022-2027) of 6.01%, resulting in a market volume of €1,239.51bn by 2027.
- IT spending on enterprise software will amount to around 672 billion U.S. dollars worldwide, a growth of 11% from 2021. Along with the other sub-segments of the IT services industry, the enterprise software market grew in recent years, with market revenues more than doubled between 2010 and 2020.
- The analysis shows excellent potential for the entire IT community, but it also seems obvious, because everything is software, nowadays. Software is the new holistic element; it is in almost every device, from your kitchen to your office, your car. Would somebody be able to cut all these and live in a world with no technology?
The question arising in this conversation might be: where all this software is being made? We have a proposition: consider IT outsourcing with AROBS, a global custom software development company.
Since 2005, Romania is considered to be the most attractive IT outsourcing destination of Eastern Europe. The industries looking for software development companies should not exclude Romania from a market prospection.
Studies show that Romania is the most mature software development outsourcing market, with more than 265 companies – it has involved, well-trained personnel, exceptional foreign-language speakers and is viable as costs. The educational level is close to Western Europeans.

The World Bank created The ease of doing business score, where economies are ranked on their ease of doing business, from 1–190. A high ease of doing business ranking means the regulatory environment is more conducive to the starting and operating a local firm. That was nice, finding out that New Zealand is No. 1 regarding the ease of doing business, but Romania has a very good ranking too, compared to the neighboring countries: 52.
In the EF English Proficiency Index studies, Romanians holds the 16th place in Europe. It is the de facto language of communication for all types of international exchanges—goods, services, and ideas. And so it is for IT outsourcing. English breaks down barriers, fosters international exchange, and exposes individuals to the broader world. The other 17% of the Romanian population speaks French.
Foreign language proficiency is a must when working for a custom software development company. Therefore, AROBS has an ongoing training program for English, French and German learning.
The Outsourcing Review states that Romania has an IT headcount of 125.000. Annually, there are 17000 young IT related field graduates here.
Those are only a few of the benefits of working with Romanian software development companies. Romania offers a stable business environment, with well-cultured and prepared IT specialists and with thriving local business partners.
Software & IT Services in Romania – 2018 Edition, commissioned by ANIS Romania and conducted by Pierre Audoin Consultants, shows that taking into consideration the business of software development – the country will continue its growth with over 14% per year, reaching €6,880 billion in 2021. The total number of IT employees will reach 124 750 in 2021, and the study evaluates that the productivity per capita will be €55 150. Over 70% of the software development created here is for the global market, and this percent is to reach 80% in 2021.

Europe is not a cheap area for software development, as compared with certain Asian countries. The global companies looking for partners for long term projects should consider the quality of the software development companies in Romania.
You cannot ignore the potential of Romanian software development: more facts to help you decide.
Technology is the crucial evolution driver for our country.
There’s absolutely no income tax for individuals working in the IT sector, a measure which helps its continuous growth and makes Romania an attractive place for software development.
Other reports state that our IT&C sector will rise to 12% of the GDP in 2025. The national official statistics body (INS) has reviewed the value of the gross domestic product (GDP) of the country in EUR 202.9 billion. The amount is the largest ever documented in the country’s history.
One of the nation’s key strengths is the competitive costs of the workforce. Since 2013, IT’s salaries increased by 11.5 percent. Nonetheless, the salary of IT experts in Romania is over 50% lower than in Germany or the USA. Generally speaking, Romanian rates for software development are lower than in other European countries like the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Poland, or the Czech Republic.
Almost every custom software development company and the entire ecosystem offers an ever-growing complexity of skills, with lower labor costs than Western and Central Europe. Therefore, the country is up five ranks in the A.T Kearney Global Services Location Index for 2016, to position 13.
- the best ratio for IT&C professionals per capita among CEE countries.
- Approximately 20,000 companies are operating within the IT&C services domain, with over 100 large IT&C players.
- Over 110,000 IT&C professionals and approx. 8,500 IT graduates per year and approx. 1,800 telco graduates.
Talent, as stated in a Brainspotting study, is spread among 12 cities, with four large hubs, two secondary and six small contenders for marginal talent, which are targeted more and more for either small operations or secondary centers. Although highly competitive and with higher labor costs, Bucharest has the best mix of skills and competencies and the most substantial number of IT&C talent.
Cluj-Napoca, Iasi, and Timisoara established themselves as talent hubs with good pipelines of graduates and a strong tradition in IT and Telco. Sibiu and Brasov come next – they provide 500 graduates per year and already accommodate large employers with teams of up to 100.
Craiova, Ploiesti, Pitesti, Galati, Constanta, and Targu-Mures have smaller talent pools but are becoming more attractive for employers who are looking to build small teams in less competitive cities.
AROBS has 10 Romanian offices, in Cluj-Napoca, Baia Mare, Arad, Timișoara, Lugoj, Suceava, Iași, Oradea, Bucharest, and Târgu Mureș.
Furthermore, the government adopted a law on the taxation exemption for software development activities. This is a powerful incentive that triggers and supports the growth of the IT sector.
It also enables software development companies to supply competitive prices to their clients in Western Europe or the USA.
Outsourced jobs run smoothly because of the flexible time zones. The Eastern European time zone is compatible with the Western one (maximum of two hours difference). The developers can also operate effectively with USA clients throughout the day (2-3 hours of overlap). Thus, a Romanian developer can work during Daytime with worldwide customers. The high-speed broadband internet ranked fourth worldwide is another crucial part that makes the process convenient.
Romania is also well known for its Internet infrastructure and quality. It ranked 5th in the world in 2018, with an average download speed of 38.6 Mb. To compare, the U.S ranked 20th, the U.K. 35th, and Germany 25th.
The IT infrastructure strongly supports the striving Romanian IT industry, formed by the numerous software development companies, both local and international.
It is effortless to get here with many flights from any major global city. Several international airports are present in the big cities (Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Iasi, and Brasov, among others). Also, since the nation joined the European Union, traveling within its boundaries is simple. This keeps transportation costs low, reducing the prices of software outsourcing services in the long run.
The most important cities that are harboring AROBS, the Romanian born custom software development company, are very well connected with Western Europe and the Americas.
