Asia-Pacific is seeing a hiring boom in apparel industry cloud roles

The number of roles in Asia-Pacific made up 15.1 per cent of total industry cloud jobs for apparel – up from 3.4 per cent in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Europe, which saw a -5.1 year-on-year percentage point change in cloud 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 cloud, 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 cloud roles in the apparel industry?

The fastest growing country was China, which saw 0.7 per cent of all cloud job adverts in the three months ending October last year, increasing to 11.7 per cent in the three months ending October this year.

That was followed by Singapore (up 2.3 percentage points), Italy (up two), and India (up one).

The top country for cloud roles in the apparel industry is the United States which saw 58.5 per cent of all roles in the three months ending October.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for cloud workers in the apparel industry?

That was followed by Manhattan Beach (United States) with 11.7 per cent, Paris (France) with 8.7 per cent, and San Francisco (United States) with 8.4 per cent.
