Recent Study: Vietnam Information Technology Report Q3 2013

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Jul 31 2013

We forecast IT spending will increase by 17.6% in 2013 to reach a total value of VND62,082bn (US$2.97bn). This is a slight downgrade from the Q213 update on the basis of a slightly weaker economic environment, however, the macroeconomic environment remains supportive of fast IT market growth over the medium term. Household PC penetration remains low, meaning an opportunity for vendors to record sales growth over the medium term as incomes rise. Meanwhile, a range of government ICT initiatives and a campaign to develop Vietnam's domestic IT industry will also boost growth. In the enterprise market there is strong demand for ERP and security solutions, as well as medium-term opportunities in cloud computing services as telecoms infrastructure improves. Finally, the outsourcing market is also expected to expand rapidly over the medium term as enterprises, particularly in Japan, switch business away from China in search of cost savings.
