Although the United States is still a leading producer of software, it seems that the nation is falling behind in training and using developers. Media experts predict that India may exceed the United States in the number of software developers in 4 years. At the moment, there are 18.2 million software developers in the world – this number is expected to increase to 26 million by 2019.
Such almost 50% increase might appear bad news for people who want the United States to remain the center of the software universe. At the moment, there are 3.6 million developers in the United States and 2.75 million in India. However, by 2018, India is said to have 5.2 million developers, almost 90% increase, versus 4.5 million in America.
Experts believe that India’s rapid software development growth can be explained, in part, by its population size (1.2 billion), and relative youth, (almost 50% of the population under 25 years of age), along with economic growth. In the country, IT and software work is regarded as clear path to the middle class for lots of the nation’s youth – however, India has seen real GDP growth of around 8% over the last decade, which may fall and lead to adjustment in the projections.
This is not the first time that the experts from Evans Data have predicted the country will surpass the United States of America in software developers. Previously, the agency believed that this would happen by 2015, but after their predictions the seriousness of the recession had hit the IT industry. It looks like the recession really delayed the country’s rise to dominance. Aside from India, China will have around 1.9 million programmers in 3 years, and Russia about 1.3 million.

|oh i'm sure the USA will think of something to accuse india of doing illegally, after all, how dare other countries try to better the land of the free pmsl|
|India already does tech support for most of the software out there, they might as well start doing tech support for something they actually know about - something they created|
|right on peesoup|

|Excuse me, but the idiot who wrote this article left out a primary fact. When you have over a Billion people in your country compared to 300 million here. I'm pretty sure they are going to have way more developers then us. Give me a break with this idiotic journalism with out putting any decent thought into it before they wrote it.|

|If America is upset over this all they would have to do is force the US companies to remove their call centers from India and force all trinkets & junk items to be made only in China. India's third world country economy will collapse...all they'd have left is torrent sites. and @darksx SaM didn't write this, he just rewrote it as with all the other articles here, none are original, that is very easily proven.|

|I believe that is correct, 4 years, maybe 4-6 years. The problem in the U.S. is that we devalued education. We constantly complain about the high cost of secondary education and the slow failure of our primary education but when you ask the American tax payer to increase their taxes for education, they bulk, they run and they hide. A lot of these Americans have this belief that they are entitled to roads and bureaucratic institutions without paying form them. These are the same people who whine and complain about minorities claiming they take most from the general fund in welfare when the tax burden for roads is squarely on those tax paying minorities who don't drive or use public transportation or use any of the public bureaucratic institutions the whiners use. Yes, we are falling behind, companies refuse to pay their fair share and shift the tax burden to individuals. We loose money because nobody wants to pay into the general fund to make our lives better. So we end up with pot holes in our roads, infrastructure breaking down, bridges falling down, importing people with higher education to run our companies because our educational system doesn't support middle class family which is really the new poor who can't afford tutorial classes for SATs for their children to get into colleges to pass the entrance exams to college. Yes we are falling behind, and Indian with 1 Billion people, and China with 1 Billion people increase their primary and secondary educational insitutions. We have 350 Million people in the U.S. That's is the same number of people in Secondary education in both India and China. Don't you get it U.S.??? The U.S. citizen is your No. 1 resource for a better life. If you don't increase the educational level of the your resource, you are doomed to trailing behind India and China forever.|
|pretty true article... Future is - No India, No IT !!!!|
|america is good place, but problem is its foregin policy, goverment which is puppet of military and bankers. which turning things up side down for world for world war 3. they are now in panic due to economic crisis and whistleblowers this days. obama lost his reputation in the eyes of the same citizen who voted him. also adding more into this matter they control media very bad this is very true if any american reading here please learn from russian media, uk media infact asian media to learn whats going on in world.|

|It's just awesome that Indian developers are much better than the others...! Can USA just tolerate this? Thanks for the news SaM..|
|this is not about better.. its about numbers.. in us is immigrant countries many founders and developers are from variety of nations working and running bossiness. the only bad thingy in usa is there military and goverment agendas.|
|uploading wallpaper, pixelated movies, 3mb low quality pornos, starting facebook pages and blogs with hindi torrents is NOT the definition of "software developers". Someone needs to notify SaM of this, his bro's will just start do more of the stuff I listed here until he sets them straight.|
|Just taking a software box and scratching out the companies name and writing some Indian name on it doesn't make it a software created in India.|
That's just retagging.
That might work here on ET.IN but I doubt it would go over well in the real world.
