I don't know about India. IMO the US SAS market is weak; a result of many from the financial sector being laid off (high supply) and cost cutting as revenues decrease (low demand). Most hiring seem to be looking to fill two or three slots with one person who needs little training. Diverse skills and subject matter expertise are essential, as well as the ability to integrate several applications with SAS or visa versa.
