BMI View: The German IT market is forecast to increase to US$61.3bn in 2012, up by around 2%, with
positive growth despite the eurozone currency crisis. Consumers and businesses remain wary because of
the risk of a new recession in the eurozone, and in 2011 IT spending continued to trend negatively, with a
further decline in PC sales. However, the decline was at least relatively modest compared with that
reported in many other EU markets. Over the next five years, we forecast a more favourable outlook for
the German IT market, with areas of opportunity including cloud computing.
Headline Expenditure Projections
Computer hardware sales: US$16.1bn in 2011 to US$16.4bn in 2012, +2% in US dollar terms. Forecast
in US dollar terms upwardly revised due to analyst modification following modest growth in Q112.
Software sales: US$19.3bn in 2011 to US$19.7bn in 2012, +2% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US
dollar terms upwardly revised due to analyst modification, but political and economic uncertainty will
weigh on investments.
IT Services sales: US$24.8bn in 2011 to US$25.2bn in 2012, +2% in US dollar terms. Forecast in US
dollar terms upwardly revised due to analyst modification, and growing demand for cloud computing
services will provide a key opportunity.
Risk/Reward Rating: Germany's score was 80.0 out of 100.0. Germany ranked second in the Europe
region in our latest business environment ratings table, behind only the UK, and ahead of France.
Key Trends & Developments
The market's high level of exposure to the ongoing eurozone currency crisis suggests a more
challenging economic outlook for German IT spending in 2012. Businesses remain cautious, but
BMI expects IT spending to outperform GDP growth in 2012, and if business confidence
improves then there could be a boost from pent-up demand. Surveys from 2011 had suggested
that around 40% of German companies expected to increase spending on IT services, with
enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management systems among the main
spending areas.
Cloud services in Germany should receive a boost from a European Commission ruling in mid-
2012 that cloud services are compatible with the EU law on privacy. Concerns and legal
ambiguities regarding the security of data stored in the cloud has been seen as one factor
contributing to the relatively slower uptake of cloud services in Europe compared with the

United States. There is now increasing interest from government organisations as well as the
private sector in cloud computing services such as SaaS and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
Other key drivers of IT spending opportunity will include growing mobile and fixed broadband
penetration, the proliferation of mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and e-readers, data centre
virtualisation, technology innovation such as GSP technology and services, and economic recovery.

    BMI View: Peru's IT market is one of the least developed in Latin America, with low device and solution penetration among households and enterprises, but we do consider it to have bright prospects as the household income profile improves over the medium term, alongside the ongoing trend of enterprise modernisation. This will see the market move to a higher growth trajectory from 2017, after a marked deceleration in 2015 and 2016 when a downturn in economic sentiment, and ......

    BMI View: We have left our forecasts for the South Korean IT market unchanged in the Q1 2016 report update. We had undertaken a negative revision in the Q4 2015 report update to reflect the weaker economic outlook and to account for the weaker sales in H115 that were reported by local retailers.

    Published: 03-Feb-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 66
    BMI View: Turkey's IT market growth trajectory took a downturn in 2015 when a combination of lira depreciation and political unrest resulted in deferred purchases and heightened price sensitivity. Based on our forecast for economic conditions to remain challenging in 2016 we expect the IT market will only strengthen marginally from 2015, and contract again in US dollar terms due to lira depreciation. The medium term outlook is however brighter, particularly from 2018, whe......

Broad-based economic growth is expected to have a positive impact on the household income profile of Vietnam over the medium term, which will deepen the retail hardware market, as well as easing price sensitivity in the higher-value replacement market. Meanwhile, Vietnam's broader economic development including the ......

We estimate that IT spending in Canada will grow by 3.1% in 2016 to reach a total market value of CAD63.7bn in local currency terms. We believe this will be driven by the software and services markets wherein which we envisage enterprise spending outperformance, including the adoption of cloud computing, Internet of Things, real-ti......

    BMI View: We have left our forecasts for the Russian IT market unchanged in our Q1 2016 report update after undertaking multiple revisions in 2015. We made multiple downgrades in 2015 to account for the tougher economic climate, international sanctions and the steep depreciation of the rouble against the US dollar. As a result of these conditions, 2014 and 2015 saw a significant contraction in dollar terms. In 2016, we believe the market will begin to grow positively in U......
