Top 100 Language Service Providers: 2018



The performance of the industry’s largest companies contrasts with the overall representative sample. The industry as a whole grew 7.99% in 2017. But when we separate out various tranches in our rankings, we see a different spectrum of performance. The 195 largest LSPs represent 13.88% of industry revenue, employ more than 76,200 people, and grew at a rate of 16.71% over the preceding year. But when we consider just the 10 biggest LSPs, we find that they grew at the rate of 20.30%, more than 2-1/2 times the industry average. The 51st to 100th LSPs in the Top 100 LSPs™ grew at a lower rate or 12.33% − and the next 95 regionally ranked companies increased their revenue by 13.85%.

What does this variance in the dataset tell us? The varying growth data across the Top 195 LSPs, the 531 respondents in this year’s sample, and the overall market of more than 18,000 providers underscores the crucial importance of a time-consuming and systematic in-depth primary research of the industry. CSA Research's annual Market Survey includes more than just a list of the largest LSPs or a slice of the Top 100 LSPs™.
