According to the analyst house more than half of the European services market last year was dominated by 50 companies that held 53.4% market share.

Those companies specialising in services also continued to grow at a relatively quick pace, largely through acquisition, to maintain their positions in the market. Among those highlighted by IDC were Logica, Infosys, and Tata Consultancy Services.

"With few exceptions, acquisition remains the main driver for revenue growth in 2007," said Laura Converso, research manager, European Services Market and Competitive Insights.

She added that offshore vendors were accounting for more of the market “thanks to increasing acceptance in key European geographies”.
