Number Of Digitally Skilled Workers To Grow 9X In India By 2025

In the education sector, the ability to develop digital security and cyber forensics tools and techniques will be an important skill

The number of workers in India requiring digital skills will need to increase nine times by 2025, and the average worker will need to develop seven new digital skills by 2025 to keep pace with technology advancements and demand, a new report said on Thursday. This means a total of 3.9 billion digital skill training will be required by 2025, according to a survey by Amazon Web Services (AWS). The digitally skilled workers currently represent 12 percent of the workforce in the country.

Cloud architecture design, cybersecurity, and large-scale data modeling are among the top in-demand skills in the country. “The research highlights the demand for more digital workers even in the non-technology sectors such as manufacturing and education,” said Rahul Sharma, President, Public Sector, AISPL, AWS India, and South Asia.

The survey included more than 500 digital workers in India and interviewed technology experts, business leaders, and policymakers.
