Headline Expenditure Projections
Computer hardware sales: SGD3.784bn in 2013 to SGD4.453bn in 207, CAGR of +4.2% in local currency terms. Growth drivers include sales of tablets, hybrids and Ultrabooks, as well as sales of servers as Singapore continues to develop into a regional data centre hub.
Software sales: SGD1.196bn in 2013 to SGD1.478bn in 2017, CAGR of +5.3% in local currency terms. Sales of enterprises of SMEs will be a key source of growth, while we also expect security software to become a larger part of the market over the medium term.
IT Services sales: SGD3.473bn in 2013 to SGD4.43bn in 2017, CAGR of +6.3% in local currency terms. There will be opportunities in key IT spending verticals such as telecoms, government, healthcare and logistics - as well as through growth of cloud computing.
Risk/Reward Ratings: Singapore's score was declined to 71.3 out of 100.0 in Q3 2013 as Singapore was overtaken by South Korea at the top of the regional table.
Key Trends & Developments
Singapore is vying with Hong Kong to position itself as a regional data centre hub, and has achieved significant success in doing so. Both markets are pushing their credentials of strong telecoms infrastructure, proximity to large markets in Asia and pro-business policy environments. In the first half of 2013 there have been several announcements for investment in Singapore based data centre facilities including Lufthansa Systems and KVH, while Savvis also announced its intention to increase its data centre presence in Asia as it targets the high growth region.
The retail hardware market is undergoing a transition following the launch of Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows 8, in October 2012, and the release of Intel's latest Haswell chipsets in June 2013. Tablet sales, lead by Apple's iPad, and more recently Google's Android partner vendors, have grown rapidly in recent years, and by H113 Ericsson reported Singapore as having the third highest tablet penetration globally at 42% of internet users. However, BMI expects tablet sales growth to slow given the high penetration - and hybrids/convertibles will capture a larger share of the market as Microsoft partner vendors innovate in design to capture demand from users wanting a blend of mobility and productivity from a single device.
