Global Finance and Accounting Outsourcing Market to Reach US$53.4 Billion by the Year 2026
- Accounting outsourcing service constitutes a critical function in the overall finance and accounting market. The global economic crisis is expected to foster the demand for F&A BPO activities, as the service needs less customization when the process and technology are outsourced (in comparison to customer care and HR BPO). Growing demand for transparency and increased regulations are driving companies to standardize their F&A (Finance and Accounting) BPO activities. The move towards standardization is also driving the incorporation of best practices in financial management, which is major driving factor for the adoption of F&A BPO services. The regulated nature of numerous F&A standards allows BPO service providers to deploy a common platform for various customers, thereby reducing customization, improving margins, and allowing customers to capitalize on the economies of scale. Number of new companies starting to use accounting outsourcing each year has been constantly increasing while the service contracts of older clients have also been extending for outsourcing companies. Going forward, outsourcing service providers would increasingly harness advanced technologies like machine automation and artificial intelligence for speeding up tasks and increasing productivity for clients. The finance and accounting outsourcing domain is witnessing a pressing need for providers to migrate from archaic pricing models towards automation initiatives to stay relevant and ensure renewal of service contracts.
- Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Finance and Accounting Outsourcing estimated at US$43.1 Billion in the year 2022, is projected to reach a revised size of US$53.4 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.9% over the analysis period. Multi-Process F&A BPO, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to grow at a 6.8% CAGR to reach US$19.3 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Source-To-pay Outsourcing segment is readjusted to a revised 5.9% CAGR for the next 7-year period. This segment currently accounts for a 24.5% share of the global Finance and Accounting Outsourcing market.
- Global businesses are increasingly opting for onshore or nearshore outsourced services for accounting and finance functions that are at the higher-end of the value chain. For instance, companies are outsourcing high-value functions such as financial planning and analysis, and investigation of accounting errors, moving away from the earlier trend that focused on transaction processing. Though India and other low-cost destinations predominate the offshoring market for F&A functions, US companies are now looking towards other locations, particularly from Latin American countries of Argentina, Mexico and Brazil. The new destinations are witnessing increased outsourcing of functions such as travel-and- entertainment expense processing, invoice processing, and accounts receivables. Also nearshoring is emerging as the favored outsourcing model among companies, particularly among US and European businesses due to cultural similarities with neighboring nations. For instance, China and Vietnam are major nearshore destinations for Japanese businesses, while Brazil and other Latin American countries are emerging as nearshore destinations for US companies. In the US, federal, local and state governments are likely to drive the demand for nearshore outsourcing services. Nearshore facilities are also expected to benefit from reducing cost-effectiveness of larger offshore centers owing to the elimination of tax exemptions, which would prompt businesses to opt for nearshore delivery centers. With businesses continuing to prefer geographically close destinations for performing high-level activities such as corporate tax and budgeting, the trend towards nearshoring is likely to gain strength. The model also finds favor as companies increasingly look to transfer complex business processes into shared services environment. Many countries offer FAO services offering their own benefits.
