2014-04-24 11:03:03 - United States Information Technology Report Q3 2013 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
US IT spending is expected to reach US$588bn in 2013, up 6.6% from 2012. The market as a whole continues to grow despite macroeconomic uncertainty; however there are some areas where sales are in decline, for instance desktops and notebooks as tablet sales surge. There are areas of the market that are expected to outperform over the medium term, for instance cloud computing and big data, and towards the latter part of the forecast period real-time enterprise software and solutions. Meanwhile, as political negotiations concerning the ´fiscal cliff´ continued in the wake of the November 2012 elections, public IT procurements remained constrained due to the budget constraints faced by many government entities.
Headline Expenditure Projections
- Computer Hardware Sales: US$144bn in 2012
to US$152bn in 2013, an increase of 4.7%. Tablet sales are driving market growth, while a new generation of ultra-thin notebooks and hybrids/convertibles building on Windows 8 and Haswell chipsets should also see growth.
- Software Sales: US$161bn in 2012 to US$173bn in 2013, an increase of 7.6%. Forecast in US dollar terms unchanged, but more investment is expected in utility software and serviced-orientated architectures rather than traditionally-packaged PC software.
- IT Services Sales: US$246bn in 2012 to US$263bn in 2013, an increase of 7.2%. Cloud computing is the key growth area, but over the medium term we expect real-time enterprise and big data services will develop rapidly.
- Risk/Reward Ratings: The US´s score was 79.1 out of 100.0. The US retains first place in our latest Americas RRR table, ahead of Canada, as well as Latin American giants such as Brazil and Mexico.
