Argentina Information Technology Report Q1 2015

BMI View: The economic crisis in 2014 had a major disruptive impact on the Argentine IT market, with thedevaluation of the peso, import restrictions, skyrocketing inflation, capital controls, shortage of credit andgovernment debt default all contributing to a recession. We estimate the IT market expanded in localcurrency terms, but declined by over 20% in US dollar terms. However, the outlook is for a gradualimprovement in the economic environment, which will support IT market growth, and deferred purchasesfrom 2014 should push growth higher once confidence returns. Meanwhile, the impact of economic crisiswas not wholly negative, with devaluation helping to make IT exports abroad more competitive andboosting industry development. There are also positive fundamentals for medium term growth includingincreases in PC penetration, second device ownership, enterprise software penetration and cloudcomputing are examples of sectors that have growth opportunities.
