Total IT services will grow by a CAGR of 1.9% in 2014-2019.

There is therefore no general trend in the update — the forecast for some countries, especially Italy and Ireland, has been increased in the short term, while for others, such as Greece and Finland, it has been decreased," said Mette Ahorlu, research director, IDC European Services. "This clearly shows that Europe is not one market, and vendors will need to understand the local conditions when prioritizing their resources and deciding their offering and messaging for each market."
