Market Overview

The Asia Pacific professional employer organization (PEO) market share witnessed significant growth in the past and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

A professional employer organization (PEO), or human resource outsourcing provider, is a specialized outsourcing firm that offers cost-effective and efficient solutions for managing human resource (HR) services to small and medium-sized enterprises. PEOs take on shared responsibility for various employee-related tasks and liabilities by leasing personnel to employers. These organizations provide businesses with vital administrative and management services, including payroll processing, finance and taxation support, employee recruitment, talent management, and risk mitigation. PEOs enable companies to focus on their core operations while benefiting from streamlined HR processes and reduced administrative burdens.

Asia-Pacific is anticipated to experience high growth due to the region's swiftly expanding SMBs. The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest-growing market for cloud-based outsourcing solutions and products, such as automation platforms. With their early adoption of automated personnel services, countries like Japan, South Korea, and Australia are already experiencing maturing growth. In addition, countries such as India, China, and Southeast Asia will likely experience significant growth during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of HR outsourcing services in nations such as the Philippines, India, and Thailand boosts regional market expansion.

Market Dynamics

Asia Pacific PEO Market Drivers

Increasing Issues with Employee Turnover

The growth of the PEO market is primarily driven by the escalating need for businesses to adhere to labor laws, which have become more stringent in recent years. Many large organizations face significant challenges related to high employee turnover rates, leading to additional expenses such as training new employees.

Professional employer organizations (PEOs) provide a range of services to clients, including payroll administration and employee benefits management. By engaging the services of a PEO, employers can effectively reduce the costs associated with administering employee benefits while empowering employees with greater control over their benefits. This, in turn, contributes to increased employee retention and lower turnover rates.

Asia Pacific PEO Market Restraints

Control Over Critical Processes has been Lost

Organizations adopting a flexible staffing approach may encounter challenges related to relinquishing control over important processes such as payroll administration, tax processing, and human resource management. Additionally, increased reliance on vendors for these vital business functions can delay time-sensitive operations, especially in areas like payroll management. Control plays a pivotal role in decision-making, particularly within the employer-employee relationship. When a business engages with a professional employer organization, it trades complete control over its workforce for a valued service.

Asia Pacific PEO Market Opportunities

Rising Interest in Increasing Cost Savings

Many small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) have opted for professional employer organizations (PEOs) to handle payroll management, employee payment, human resources support, and related functions. This decision has helped these small businesses survive and resulted in cost savings. Along with saving time and money, PEOs can efficiently manage various responsibilities on behalf of employers. They are particularly advantageous for SMEs that require additional resources, expertise, or systems to handle payroll, Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS), and other tasks. Moreover, PEOs proactively identify and mitigate compliance-related risks apart from cost savings. Substantial cost reductions and a high return on investment drive the growth of the PEO market.
