Asia-Pacific sees hiring boom in apparel industry data analytics roles

Asia-Pacific was the fastest growing region for data analytics hiring among apparel industry companies in the three months ending November.

By Michael Goodier

The number of apparel industry company roles in Asia-Pacific made up 10.5 per cent of total data analytics jobs – up from 3.4 per cent in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Europe, which saw a -2.7 year-on-year percentage point change in data analytics roles.

The figures are compiled by Global Data, 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.

Global Data'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 data analytics, 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 data analytics roles in the apparel industry?

The fastest growing country was Malaysia, which saw zero per cent of all data analytics job adverts in the three months ending November last year, increasing to 4.3 per cent in the three months ending November this year.

That was followed by Italy (up 2.5 percentage points), China (up 1.5), and India (up 1.2).

The top country for data analytics roles in the apparel industry is the United States which saw 54.2 per cent of all roles in the three months ending November.

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

Some 6.7 per cent of all apparel industry data analytics roles were advertised in Portland (United States) in the three months ending November - more than any other city.

That was followed by Winston-Salem (United States) with 6.7 per cent, San Francisco (United States) with 4.9 per cent, and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) with four per cent.
