Requirements Engineering have had a tremendous development along the last 25 years. The knowledge and practices about requirements and there management growth exponentially and the application of them had a big development.
Several metrics show the diffusion of Requirements Engineering approaches. The availability of tools supporting Requirements Engineering activity contributed to this positive evolution. Several universities have undergraduate RE courses in their programs and most of them have RE graduate courses. The observation of ads recruiting IT people shows growing interest in RE approaches.
The Information Technology market, the use of the IT resources and the penetration of the IT have growth worldwide and specially in "emergent markets"
