The information technology training sector in India is witnessing a boom, driven by a talent crunch, paucity of employable' graduates and all-round need for trained manpower at all levels.

The Information Technology (IT) education and training sector has been the pioneer in imparting professional training in India. With a growing need of IT professionals, plethora of technologies and products and consequent continuing education requirements, presently the Indian IT training industry is booming. The Indian IT training market is currently estimated to be worth $477 million of which around 10 percent pertains to corporate training of around $47 million. The IT corporate training market however is growing at a faster pace and this year it is expected to grow at 40 percent. Over the next three years it is estimated to be a $236 million market. However, based on current trends, the supply of software professionals is projected to be 885,000 by 2008. This suggests that there may be a shortfall of 235,000 software professionals by 2008.With the demand supply gap growing there are abundant opportunities for a good scalable and sustainable business model.
