Industry challenges and opportunities

  • As GDP followers, the growth rate in GDP is predicted to fall in 2019
  • Access to labour, both skilled and unskilled, remains a challenge
  • The diversity of the sector and visibility of revenues (for most sub-sectors) offers it some protection/resilience to a downturn
  • Strong demand for outsourcing, particularly in the private sector, remains
  • Speed of technological advancements means that sector specialists have a natural advantage.
