[USPRwire, Thu Dec 25 2014] China continues to outperform in terms of IT spending growth and IT sector development due to a mix of economic strength and a forward-looking policy environment . Despite rapid growth in the past decade the market remains attractive with strong growth prospects resulting from (inter alia) the size of population, rising incomes, relatively low market penetration and a supportive poli tical environment . IT spending growth in China is expected to outperform on a regional and global basis, with a CAGR of 10.0 % forecast 2014-2018 as IT spending increases as a share of GDP . However, China's IT market is not without its challenges as the pool of first-time buyers diminishes and vendors continue to struggle in the face of ongoing high levels of piracy, cyber security issues, intense competition for price-sensitive consumers and uncertainty generated by regulatory decisions .
