Asia-Pacific is seeing a hiring jump in military industry big data roles

Some parts of the world are investing more heavily in big data roles than others.

By Data Journalism Team

Asia-Pacific was the fastest growing region for big data hiring among military industry companies in the three months ending June.

The number of roles in Asia-Pacific made up 7.2% of total big data jobs – up from 4.7% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Europe, which saw a 1.7 year-on-year percentage point change in big data roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include big data, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for big data job ads in the military industry?

The fastest growing country was India, which saw 3.8% of all big data job adverts in the three months ending June 2021, increasing to 6% in the three months ending June this year.

That was followed by France (up 1.4 percentage points), Sweden (0.3), and Singapore (0.2).

The top country for big data roles in the military industry is the United States which saw 79.9% of all roles advertised in the three months ending June.

Which cities and locations are the biggest hubs for big data workers in the military industry?

Some 4.9% of all military industry big data roles were advertised in Bengaluru (India) in the three months ending June.

That was followed by Reston (United States) with 3%, Huntsville (United States) with 2.7%, and Orlando (United States) with 2.2%.
