India produces a whopping 1.5 million engineering graduates every year. It’s a key reason the country’s on its way to become a hotspot for global capability centers (GCCs) across energy, industrial, pharmaceutical, biotech and many other sectors.

The number of GCCs in India is growing. It’s expected to jump by 20% in the next few years: from 1,580 today to 1,900 by 2025.

Rapidly transforming into research and innovation hubs, GCCs were a focus of India Energy Week (IEW), held February 6-9 (2024). IEW explored energy development in the country and the homegrown tech talent helping to drive it.

ExxonMobil is tapping into this talent pool at its Bengaluru campus, especially through its Bengaluru Technology Center (BTC) and Bengaluru Research and Development Technology Center (BRDTC).

The BTC was established in 2017 with a small pool of staff. It has since grown to more than 900 technologists across different disciplines, who support nearly every ExxonMobil oil and gas site from Guyana to Australia. The center also supports carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects in the U.S. while laying the groundwork for CCS and hydrogen projects in the Asia Pacific.

Meanwhile, the BRDTC helps improve the recyclability of plastics and rubber. For the past 25 years, the BRDTC has nurtured Indian talent and innovation – and helped develop stronger, more recyclable plastics for India and beyond.

Discover how ExxonMobil is harnessing India’s tech capabilities to accelerate lower-emission fuels and technologies and develop solutions that help address plastic waste.
