  • Staffing Industry Analysts placed the market size at $1 billion in 2012 and projects $5 billion by 2018.
  • This reflects an annual industry growth rate of 31% which was determined by reaching $5 billion in 2018.
  • Each year’s connected population assumes consistent growth. To reach full access within 10 years this worked out to 11% per year.
  • In order to quantify, oDesk randomly chose a 10-year timeframe.
