Recent Study: Philippines Information Technology Report Q1 2015

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Dec 16 2014

We have a bullish outlook for the development of the Philippines' IT market, as we identify it as a regional outperformer over the medium term. The low penetration of products and services has left an opportunity for vendors to target the market as incomes rise and device prices decline, creating a fertile environment for a period of robust catch-up growth. Meanwhile, the booming business process outsourcing (BPO) industry presents a huge opportunity for enterprise sales for hardware and software vendors. Taking the market as a whole, we forecast IT spending growth of 10.9% in 2015, with the market expected to reach a value of PHP201.5bn. Over the medium term emerging technologies will add to the growth momentum, particularly in the latter years of our forecast, with cloud services, big data analytics, smart infrastructure, telehealth and e-government all expected to contribute to growth.
