Which industries pay the highest to techies abroad?

Tech workers abroad get paid more in some industries as compared to others. Even though the qualifications and work experience of tech professionals may be similar, there is still a pay disparity among various industries. Some industries like biotechnology or finance can invest more in their tech workers as compared to sectors like a school district.

As per the Dice Salary Survey, here are the industries where tech workers take home more than $100,000 a year:

Industry Salary

Aerospace and Defence $109,698

Bank/Financial/Insurance $105,170

Entertainment Media $103,608

Computer Software $102,739

Medical/Pharmaceutical $100,539

As per the Survey, tech professionals can earn around $80,000 per year in industries like Govt., e-commerce, telecommunication and manufacturing.

Here are the industries which pay techies between $80,000 and $99,000 per year:

Industry Salary

Professional Services $99,466

Telecommunications $97,702

Manufacturing $91,634

Retail/E-commerce $80,580

Marketing/Advertising $80,320

These industries pay tech workers less than $80,000 per year:

Industry Salary

Transportation/Logistics $78,162

Distributor/Wholesale $76,716

Hospitality/Travel $73,859

Non-profit $71,911

Education $68,586

According to the Dice Salary Survey, there is also a discrepancy in the yearly increase in salaries among various sectors. Sectors like aerospace which offer a high pay show a significant yearly increase in salaries. However, sectors like education which pay less show a decline in the yearly increase in salaries.

The survey states that salaries for tech professionals have levelled off between 2017 and 2018. This could be the reason for the disparity between the salaries of tech workers in different industries.

Industries are now only willing to shell out a certain amount to techies even though they may be handling critical functions.
