Malaysia Information Technology Report Q2 2015

BMI View: Although Malaysian IT market is one of the most developed markets in the region, BMI believes that there is further scope for growth with the sector expanding an average of 7.1% until 2019. This is driven by a supportive economic environment and a government policy framework encouraging the development of the market. In the hardware market, rising incomes and increased access to affordable data connectivity, along with cuts to Windows licensing fees, will boost consumer and enterprise spending.

Meanwhile, over the medium term, vendor innovation based on Intel's Haswell chips and Windows touch functionality will help vendors capitalise on the strong consumption story in Malaysia. In the enterprise software and services market growth will be also be robust as firms look to harness increasing volumes of data - as well as respond to heightened competition across Southeast Asia with efficiency generating investments. Areas we identify for especially strong growth include security software and services, as well as outsourcing and cloud computing.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Computer Hardware Sales: MYR9.5bn in 2014 to MYR9.8bn in 2015, +3.1% in local currency terms. A sharp slowdown in tablet sales growth forecast, but resurgence in notebook growth will partially offset and keep market in positive growth territory.

Software Sales: MYR3.9bn in 2014 to MYR4.4bn in 2015, +10.9% in local currency terms. Spending growth expected to slow slightly from 2014 as OS upgrades were brought forward by the withdrawal of official support for Windows XP in April 2014.
