Demand for time-efficient selection systems owing to rising number of job applicants is bolstering the market growth in APAC. The 21st century has witnessed a huge influx of population in the urban cities of developed and developing economies in search of a better life. Higher standards of living, higher job opportunities, access to modern amenities and services are the few major factors that have contributed to the migration of rural population to the urban areas. Developing economies witnessed a steady growth in the post-recession era, and thus, there was a rise in disposable incomes by consumers. According to the World Bank, worldwide, today, over 50% of the population lives in urban areas. By the year 2045, the world’s urban population would increase by 1.5 times to 6 Bn. As urbanization has increased and will continue to increase in the coming years, the need for the creation of jobs in urban areas would grow at full throttle. A competitive region enables its industries and firms to grow jobs, raise productivity, and increase incomes of citizens. Furthermore, the number of applicants applying for a job in any organization has increased to very high numbers. Selecting the most suitable candidate for a particular profile has become more tedious, and the conventional methods of conducting interviews for job screening prove time consuming and inefficient.

Thus, the demand for efficient and quicker employee screening systems have been contributing to the use of employment screening services by organizations.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted APAC due to wide disease spread; countries in this region are among the highly populated ones, which leads to a greater risk infection spread.Many global brands and technological companies are headquartered in the region.

As per the quarterly data available for 2020, employment levels fell in virtually all economies, compared to those in 2019. Working hours in APAC countries fell by 15.2% in the Q2 and 10.7% in the Q3 of 2020, compared to pre-crisis levels. Working-hour losses are attributed to the fact that millions of people left the labor force or lost their jobs due to plummeted growth of enterprises. Thus, the employment screening service providers have experienced adversely effects in APAC countries during the first three quarters of 2020. However, with the gradual opening of economic activities across the region, the demand for skilled workforce has begun to rise again across all industries since the end of 2020, which is contributing to the employment screening services market growth.
