-Training and development has become an effective means of improving skilled work forces and also of encouraging knowledge retention. Hence, it will be an obvious choice to focus more on in-house and out-bound training services for the operations team.
-From a market standpoint, consulting services, project engineering, and installation services have high growth opportunities in greenfield projects during the forecast period, whereas maintenance, support, and operational improvement services have high growth opportunities in brownfield projects.
-From an economic standpoint, as the global economy recovers from its downturn, end users are placing emphasis on minimizing CAPEX investments. The trend is moving more toward OPEX parameters, such as the improvement of processes, asset utilization, and health and safety issues.
