BMI View: Software and services spending growth is forecast to drive the South Korean IT market

throughout the medium term. Penetration of cloud computing and Internet of Things solutions will increase,

driven by the strength of the South Korean ICT ecosystem, which includes global leading vendors and

government support. The hardware outlook is more mixed, where hybrid notebooks are expected to record

volume growth, but tablets face a growing threat from phablets that have proved hugely popular.

Latest Updates & Industry Developments

? Computer Hardware Sales: KRW11.5trn in 2016 to KRW12.3trn in 2020, a compound annual growth

rate (CAGR) of 1.5%. PC saturation and threat to tablet replacement spending by the trend towards larger

and more powerful smartphones will be a drag on growth, but hybrid notebooks should be a bright spot.

? Software Sales: KRW6.3trn in 2016 to KRW7.8trn in 2020, a CAGR of 5.3%. Advanced solution

demand from key verticals such as financial services will offset the price squeeze from emerging market

vendors and cloud solutions.

? IT Services Sales: KRW8.8trn in 2016 to KRW11.2trn in 2020, a CAGR of 6.1%. A base of local

vendors and supportive government policies means South Korea is positioned well for cloud computing

and Internet of Things growth.

  • Brazil Information Technology Report Q4 2016
    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 81
    BMI View: The Brazilian IT market contracted sharply in 2015, with further, albeit less substantial, decline forecast for 2016 due to a combination of political and economic factors. As the economy emerges from recession and the political situation stabilises we envisage a return to IT market spending growth from 2017, but we expect momentum to be weak. Our Country Risk team forecasts modest GDP and consumption growth, while in the IT market there are negative trends such......
  • Kuwait Information Technology Report Q4 2016
    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 61
    BMI View: Kuwait has a large and lucrative hardware market where retail spending on PCs has been strong over the past decade, but, as a result of a weaker economic outlook and PC market saturation, demand is expected to be flat over the medium term. The hardware segment will still be lucrative for vendors, but in terms of growth it is software and services that will take centre stage as there is upside from the lower oil price acting as a catalyst for diversification and ......
  • Malaysia Information Technology Report Q4 2016
    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 70
    BMI View: Malaysia's IT market has considerable growth potential throughout the medium term, with opportunities weighted towards software and services, where enterprise demand is expected to be strong. Meanwhile, the hardware segment has a mixed outlook due to increased threat of smartphones cannibalising retail PC sales. Even so, the market will be much stronger in the medium term than it was in 2015,when IT hardware spending declined sharply due to the combination of ri......
  • Qatar Information Technology Report Q4 2016
    Published: 21-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 64
    BMI View: Qatar's IT market has the strongest outlook of the high income Middle East countries throughout the medium term. We forecast total IT spending will increase at a CAGR of 6.9% throughout 2016-2020 to a value of QAR5.2bn in 2020. The hardware market is highly lucrative and we expect this to remain the case, but volume growth potential is diminished by the fact the PC market is saturated, meaning vendors will rely on replacement sales. As such, software and service......
  • Argentina Information Technology Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 68
    BMI View: The Argentine IT market has considerable potential, but economic challenges have been a drag on growth in recent years. Challenging economic conditions are again a negative for IT demand in 2016 as a result of the devaluation of the peso in December 2015, particularly in the hardware segment where price rises reduced affordability. However, over the forecast period our Country Risk team envisages economic normalisation, as well as peso appreciation, that will un......
  • Colombia Information Technology Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 69
    BMI View: Colombia is a market with great potential due to relatively low penetration rates for PCs, software and solutions. Our core scenario is for an IT spending CAGR of 4.5% over 2016-2020 as the economy strengthens, with a potential tailwind from the formal conclusion of government conflict with FARC. Colombia does however continue to be vulnerable to external shocks such as a lower oil price. This downside was demonstrated in 2015 when oil prices resulted in a sharp......

We forecast IT spending will increase at a CAGR of 7.5% throughout 2016-2020, and the strongest performance is expected in the software and services segments, where enterprise investments in cloud computing, applications and outsourcing will drive growth. Latest Updates & Indus......
  • Philippines Information Technology Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 70
    BMI View: We hold positive medium-term outlook for the Philippines' IT market, which has strong domestic economic momentum that is relatively insulated from China and commodity market risks that could potentially drive outperformance. Rising incomes will benefit the PC market, but we adopted a more cautious outlook this quarter due to potential for smartphones to cannibalise spending. The enterprise software and services outlook remains very strong, and will be the main d......
  • Sweden Information Technology Report Q4 2016
    Published: 14-Sep-2016        Price: US 1295 Onwards        Pages: 71
    BMI View: We forecast IT spending in Sweden will increase at a CAGR of 4.2% throughout 2016-2020, reaching a total of SEK154.9bn. Swedish enterprises have traditionally been high spenders on IT and early adopters of the latest technologies. We expect this characteristic to be repeated with cloud and Internet of Things solutions. This software and services demand from enterprises will drive growth throughout the medium term and compensate for the weaker outlook in the hard......
