South Africa Information Technology Report Q3 2014

BMI View: South Africa's slow economic growth and weak investor sentiment will weigh on IT spending bybusinesses and consumers during our five-year forecast period, ending in 2018. However, we expect thesuccessful completion of the May 7 2014 general elections and the victory of the ruling African NationalCongress (ANC) party to allay concerns over political instability and ensure continued governmentexpenditure on various infrastructure and social projects, which would have a secondary effect on the ITmarket.

We expect the IT services sector to record the strongest growth over our forecast period to 2018, followedby the IT software sector, which is benefitting from the take-up of cloud-based solutions. Falling demandfor PCs and laptops, in favour of more mobile form factors such as tablets, has dampened our outlook forthe computer hardware market in the consumer segment, although we expect continued government andenterprise patronage to sustain growth, albeit it minimal.
