Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp. (CTSH) expects sales growth in 2012 to be driven largely by North America, its largest revenue generating market, which is gradually stabilizing after the economic uncertainty that weighed on businesses last year.

Gordon Coburn, the newly appointed president at Cognizant, said late Wednesday he expects clients in North America to spend more on projects which are discretionary in nature this year, compared with its second-largest market--Europe--which remains volatile.

Coburn's comments come after the Nasdaq-listed company earlier Wednesday reported a 16% growth in earnings for the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31 and forecast a rise of at least 23% in sales for this year to $7.53 billion.

The New Jersey-based company, which employs three-fourths of its staff in India, has been posting industry-leading growth over the past few years.

Cognizant's sales increase outlook is much stronger than the local software export industry's 11%-14% revenue growth forecast for the next fiscal year beginning April 1. However, the U.S. company's outlook pales against the 33% sales growth it posted in 2011 even amid a tough business climate.
