Although China has left India far behind in terms of most economic and technological indicators, there is one area China has failed to catch up: the commercial software industry. Analysts disagree on the magnitude and direction of future gap between the software industries of the two economies. While India's development has been one-dimensional in the development of skill base, the Chinese software industry in recent years is undergoing major structural shifts in many respects. An analysis cannot make a meaningful prediction without considering such structural changes. This paper analyzes structural shifts in the Chinese software industry in terms of market, technology, actor, product and focus.
