In Pakistan, the number of freelancers has grown significantly over the years, leading not just to the launch of many new local IT service projects, but also to significant growth in international clients for Pakistani freelancers.

In the course of the year 2020, the revenue of freelancers in Pakistan grew by 150 million despite the adverse impact of the coronavirus epidemic on the world economy.

The latest 2020 report entitled ‘Pakistan IT Industry‘ was published by the Pakistan Software Export Board, highlighting the achievements of the country’s IT industry.

According to the report, in the course of 2020, Pakistani freelancers dominated the world’s most popular services including Web Development, Graphics Designing and Programming.

The report points out that there was also a gradual increase in the number of self-employed people in Pakistan in 2020, mainly because of the youth IT and technology courses that are absolutely free from the Government of Pakistan. And this is why every year thousands of new young people enter the freelance world.

IT services were exported over the past year to more than 120 countries, with a total revenue of 150 million Pakistani freelancers. In addition, in the second quarter of the fiscal year, Pakistani freelancers ranked first in Asia for revenues. In terms of growth, rating fourth in the world.

In the classifications, Pakistan is only a few points ahead of the United States, the United Kingdom, and Brazil. In Pakistan, the majority of young freelancers are aged 20 to 30 years and account for 60 percent of the total freelancers in Pakistan.
