Fearful Consumer Market

Consumer market is something, I always feared. During my engineering days, I knew it was one area where I would not find myself working. I always feared the harsh competition of the market. I worried if ever, anything I made would sustain in the market. Or how people would react to it? You can say, I feared criticism and all the yap yap of group of people, who knows only how to suggest but not to act. Thus, I kept my interest into custom projects and not related to anything that a single consumer would use, rather it was something of community service. But with changing time, I knew I had to make a plunge into the ocean of consumer market and face the competition. "Be a man! Dude" That is what I would say to myself. I knew I couldn't swim, but I had to give it a try.

Analytics Industry

Following is the analysis made Analytics Industry world wide.
The chart above shows that the 90% of the analytics company is from USA and 6 % from U.K. Whereas India covers only 1 % of the total analytic industry.

This shows that Singapore, India and Australia are very low with respect to the western counterpart. China is not even in the category. Overall, US has the majority of the share.
Analytics in itself is not an industry, it can associate itself with any data intensive industry. Lets look at the industries where analytics is applied.

The above table clearly shows that the major players of analytics are related to the Business Services. Then there are Software & Internet, Health care, Consumer Services, Retail and Financial Services. 

Most of the fields like Telecommunication still seems to be unexplored properly. But I assume that with the increase in the telecommunication sector, in near future we might see increasing use of analytics in the those fields too.
